Jesus Craft Stick Fish

Craft Stick Fish Craft from www.daniellesplace.com www.daniellesplace.com Craft Stick Fish From www.daniellesplace.com
Craft Stick Fish Craft Craft Stick Fish Craft

This craft is great for Vacation Bible School. They cost only pennies to make and allow room for creativity. These fish were made with jumbo craft sticks, but you can use regular-sized craft sticks instead.

What you will need:

Jumbo Colored Wood Craft Sticks (You can use the colored craft stick or let your children paint their own.)

15 mm Wiggle Eyes

Acrylic Paint and Paint Brushes if you are using craft sticks that aren't colored

Vegetable Oil and paint brushes if you are making them translucent

Tacky Glue

Printer Paper and/or Colored Paper

Colored Pencils and/or Markers

Gems and other Decorative Items (Optional)

 

How to Make the Craft Stick Fish:

1. Make a sample craft before class using the printable pattern (Available to Members). Depending on how much time you have, you can glue the fish together before class or have your children glue them together themselves. You can use the printable template, make your own, or just let your children glue them together the way they would like. If you use the craft sticks that aren't colored, let your children paint the sticks in class, or paint them ahead of time.

2. In class you can have your children draw a design for the inside of the fish, or use the "Jesus" pattern, color it, cut it out, and glue it to the back of the fish. (Available to members.)

3. You can make the fish translucent by printing the Jesus pattern onto colored paper. (If your printer uses water soluable ink, make copies of the pattern using a Zerox machine.) Have your children glue the pattern to the back of the fish and then paint a thin layer of vegetable oil over the paper. Use a paper towel to soak up any excess oil. You can also use crepe paper in the same manner. When you hang the fish near a window it will glow.

Secret Message Craft Stick Craft

Secret Message Folding Craft Stick Game and Craft from www.daniellesplace.com

The craft sticks are taped together so that when the craft sticks are pushed together from the top and bottom of the stack they fan fold up into a compact stack of sticks.

What you will need:

WoodsiesWoodsies Mini Jumbo Craft Sticks -4.5" 50/Pkg - Use good quality craft sticks that lay flat. The 5/8" work perfect with the one-inch tape. *You can use the Woodsies Jumbo Craft Sticks with the 1.5 Inch - 3M Scotch Masking Tape for a bigger Canvas.

3M Scotch Masking Tape, 1-Inch - Other brands will work, but this tape works great! It is the exact color of the craft sticks. (Staple's Tape works better with the washable markers, but it is lighter than the stick and more transparent and doesn't cover the stick as well.)

Permanent Markers, crayons, or colored pencils - (The washable markers don't work well because they smear.)

RibbonFolding Craft Stick Diagram from www.daniellesplace.com

 

How to Make the Folding Craft Stick Canvas:

1. If you are using the mini-jumbo craft sticks, cut the one-inch masking into 4-inch pieces.

2. Place two sticks together, side by side, and tape them together covering both the sticks with the tape.

3. Turn the two sticks over so that they are diagonal to you.

4. Place another craft stick next to and below the two sticks that you taped together. Use another piece of tape to tape the bottom two sticks together.

5. Turn all three sticks over diagonally and place another stick at the bottom of the row and tape the last two sticks together. Keep going until you have a whole row of sticks.

6. You can also cover the first and last stick in the row by placing tape over the stick and then folding it back over the stick. It is easier to write on the tape than the craft stick. The ink soaks into the sticks and blurs.

7. Draw out your design on the craft stick canvas with a pencil. If you make a mistake, you can erase it. When you are happy with your design paint it with the acrylic paint. When the acrylic paint is dry use a black marker to outline your shapes and write the words. You can use: "Mom, thanks for sticking up for me!" or "Mom, thanks for sticking by me!", or anything else you want.

Monkey See, Monkey Do Bible Lesson Series

 

"Monkey See, Monkey Do, Jesus Wept and So Should You" Sunday School Lessons

Monkey Sunday School Lesson and Crafts from www.daniellesplace.com

These crafts and activity ideas come from the Sunday School Lesson Series "Monkey See, Monkey Do" and are available to members on The Resource Room.

Through this lesson children learn that it can be fun to copy others especially when they are doing something fun or exciting, but we have to be careful who we copy because not everything people do is appropriate. When it comes to copying what we see, Jesus gives us the best example. Children learn that Jesus wept for people who were sad, and that they should also feel empathy for others.

Scripture References: Ephesians 5:1, Luke 19:41, and John 11:33-35

1. Rejoice and Weep/Mourn Monkey Puppet

monkey Bible stick puppet Craft for Sunday school from www.daniellesplace.comUse the weeping and rejoicing stick monkeys to review the Bible verse. Have your children repeat the Bible verse several times while holding their Monkey Stick Puppets. When they say "rejoice" or "weep" they should turn their stick puppets to the appropriate side. See how fast they can say the verse. See if they can come up with a tune to sing the verse. (Patterns available to members.)

2. Monkey See, Monkey Do! Color Sheet

Children color a picture showing monkeys rejoicing together and weeping together. (Printable Pattern Available to members only)

3. Bible Verse Review Game

Bible verse color sheet for Sunday School from www.daniellesplace.comAsk your children the following questions and then have them come up with their own questions using the phrase "Monkey see, monkey do". Or have them reply to your answer using the phrase and then the answer. For example, a child would reply to the first question, "Monkey see, monkey do, you shouldn't hit when someone hits you."

1. Monkey see, monkey do, should you hit because someone hit you? No
2. Monkey see, monkey do, should you bully because someone bullies you? No
3. Monkey see, monkey do, should you laugh when someone’s laughing too? Depends what their laughing about.
4. Monkey see, monkey do, should you cry when someone’s crying because they are blue? Yes
5. Monkey see, monkey do, should you be talking when the teaching is talking to you? No.
6. Monkey see, monkey do, should you shout when someone’s shouting at you? No
7. Monkey see, monkey do, should you hug when someone’s hugging you? Yes
8. Monkey see, monkey do, should you . . .

Monkey Bible Verse Coloring sheet for Sunday School - Rejoice from www.daniellesplace.com

4. Color a Bible Verse Color Sheet for Younger Children

Children color the monkeys and then practice reading the Bible verse. A happy monkey is in the place of the word "rejoice" and a sad monkey is in the place of "weep" or "mourn". (Printable Pattern available to members.)

5. Monkey Around

Play a concentration game to see who is the best little monkey. Tell your children that they should watch you and then do what you did. Start with two movements and then have your children do the same thing. Add more and more movements and see who can copy the sequence without making a mistake. You can use some of the following movements: Salute, jump, shake your head from side to side, wave, touch your toes, swim, jump from side to side, chicken dance, jumping jacks, tiptoe, say “Jesus wept”, march, run in place, pat your head, cup your ears like you are trying to hear better, sing a tune, say “Excuse me.”

6. Play “Monkey See, Monkey Do!”

Have your children sit in a circle and pick one child to be the guesser. Send the guesser outside or have him close his or her eyes while you pick another child in the circle to be the lead “monkey”. Decide which player will be the guesser. That player leaves the room. The lead monkey than does things and the other monkeys follow along. The lead monkey must do them when the monkey in the middle is not looking so that the monkey in the middle cannot tell who is the lead monkey. Tell the other children to try not to look directly at the lead monkey because they want to fool the monkey in the middle as long as possible. If the lead monkey gets caught, he then becomes the monkey in the middle.

Point to each word one at a time and ask your children to look at their bananas to see if they have that word.

Child of the King Craft

 

Child of the King Craft www.daniellesplace.comWhat you will need:

Card Stock

Color Printer of Colored Pencils

Tacky Glue

Two-inch Pom poms (Bright Plush Pom Poms from Hobby Lobby) or make your won pom poms (See below.)

Shapre Pointy Scissors

Wiggly Eyes or Doll Eyes

 

How to make the Child of the King Display:

Childen color the box display and glue it together. They color the feet, arms, and crown patterns and glue them to the pom pom. To finish they add wiggly eyes. Patterns for this craft are available to members.)

How to Make Your Own Pom Poms without a Pom Pom Maker:How to make pom poms  from www.daniellesplace.com

1. Draw two circles onto crad board (Card board from cereal boxes work well) the size you would like your pom poms. Then draws circles inside the two circles. The bigger the inside circle the thicker your pom poms will come out.

2. Cut out the inside circles to make donut shapes.

3. Place the two donut shapes together and wind long pieces of yarn through the holes in the donut shapes and around the outside until you have fill up the hole with yarn. To keep the yarn ends secure just wind the yarn around the ends until the ends are covered by the yarn. Add new lengths of yarn the same way.

4. When you have the hole filled up with yarn cut around the outside edge of the donut shape with sharp scissors all the way down to the card board.

5. Separate the two donut shapes and insert a piece of yarn between the shapes. Tie the yarn pulling it as tight as you can.

6. Cut the card board shapes and pull them away from the pom pom.

7. To save time you can cut the donut shapes so that they aren't complete circles. In this way you will just slip the yarn through the cut slit instead of inserting the yarn through the hole. See this YouTube video for a demonstration of this technique.

You can buy plastic pom pom makers in several different designs.

The Clover Small Pom Pom Maker allows you to wind one half of the donut shape at a time so you don't have to poke the yarn through hole, but it does take some manuvering. You can see a video on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2Ma-hgQIDU.

The Susan Bates Easy Wrap Pom Pon Maker is a little easier to use because the two sides of the pom pom are wrapped separately. Wrapping only one half of the circle saves a lot of time because you don't have to poke the yarn through the hole in the center of the donut shape. You can see a demonstration using this pom pom maker on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HaSqTUgFHi4.

SUSAN BATES has another pompom maker that is just plastic circles with a ridge in the middle. They are used the same way as the directions above.

 

Isaiah Predicts Jesus' Birth

Bible Scroll Christmas Ornament Craft for Kids from www.daniellesplace.com for Sunday School lesson "Isaiah Predicts Jesus' BirthScripture Reference: Isaiah 7:14

I teach 4 - 6 year olds and they are so much fun. Two weeks before Christmas, I gave a Sunday school lesson incorporating Isaiah 7:14 and how Isaiah had predicted so many years before about Jesus' birth. I tried to get them to predict what they thought would happen on earth 100 years from now. I got so many responses like: living in glass bubbles in the air, living on the moon, thinking of where you want to be and then appearing there, no more hunger anywhere, no sickness, etc.

We made the scroll and it was so easy for them to do. ( The Pattern for the scroll is available to members of The Resource Room.) They were astounded on how a clean white sheet turned into an old-time scroll. Using the concentrated tea was easy and not too messy for cleanup. I heard a few parents' comments on how genuine they looked. The kids got to put them up on their Christmas trees. Sent in by Anita

Mary Tells Her Good News

Scripture Reference: Luke 1:26-56
Concepts: Mary was happy and shared her good news about Baby Jesus. We can tell people about Baby Jesus too.

Crafts and Activities

1. Make a whispering tube out of a paper towel roll. Cover the roll with pretty paper and have the children decorate them with stickers, crayons, or markers. Instead of using paper towel rolls, you can cut pretty colors of poster board and roll it up to form a tube. Glue it together using a hot melt glue gun. Tell the story about how Mary told her good news. Discuss how we can tell people about Jesus.

2. Whisper Bible verses or short sentences through the tube and have the children repeat what you said.

3. Bring in baby items and discuss what each item is used for. Play a guessing game by removing one item when the children aren't looking and have them guess which one is missing.

Jesus Grew and I am Growing Too

Scripture Reference: Matthew 2:19-23, 13:55-56 and Luke 2:4-7, 40, 51-52
Concepts: Jesus grew and learned many things; you are growing and learning to do many things. God made me special.

Outline each child's body on a big piece of paper (butcher paper used to cover bulletin boards) and then let them color it. Write the scripture verse Luke 2:40, "And the Child continued to grow and become strong, increasing in wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him," on each sheet or paper before class.
This idea comes from Cindi VanWingerden of Cincinnati, Ohio. She says, " I had one parent tell me that they were happy to have a new one to replace one they had for a year or so that the child would not get rid of until they got a new one!"

©2003, Digital by Design, Inc. -*See Copyright Information

Comments:

We used this project for a lesson about Jesus' love for us. We tapped two-feet pieces of butcher paper to the wall all around the room one right next to the other. On the top of the paper we wrote, "Jesus loves ______" whomever we happened to be tracing. We traced the child's body and had them use crayons to draw in the face and clothes. Most of the children seemed to enjoy the project. Some of the children spent at least 20 minutes on the project others were more interested in the play dough. We probably should have put up the play dough first.

Make a Church and Play with Finger Puppets

sunday school paper Church Craft bible craft from www.daniellesplace.comDraw a simple church outline with a mirror image of the outline above the roof line of the church. You are going to fold the outline on what would be the peak of the roof so that the church stands up on it's own. A Pattern for this church is also available on Daniellesplace.

Have children color the church, then fold. Attach it to a piece of cardboard for the floor. If you make each outline large enough you can make simple stick figure puppets out of craft sticks and card stock people shape cutouts for Jesus, Mary and Joseph for the children to play with in the church.

Pipe Cleaner People Puppets

Make 3 taller pipe cleaner people and 1 shorter pipe cleaner person. The shorter one would represent Jesus, of course. Cut out a circle for the face from construction paper. The children will draw a smiley face on it and then glue it to the pipe cleaner head on each figure. Also, cut out robes for each figure out of construction paper. The children will glue these to the pipe cleaner bodies. Tape each of the pipe cleaner people to a Popsicle stick. Purchase a small block of Styrofoam. Cut out a "wall" from construction paper and draw columns on it to represent the temple. You could even surround the Styrofoam on 3 sides with the walls. Glue the walls to the back and sides of the Styrofoam leaving the front open. The children can then stick the Popsicle stick people into the foam to represent the temple. Sent in by Susan Schultz

Jesus Bingo Song

Using the tune from BINGO try this song. Have one letter each on a sheet of cardboard or construction paper to spell the name Jesus. Five children are chosen, each child holds one letter from the name Jesus. The following song is sung through once before any letter is removed. We start with the final S as the first letter to be removed so that the capital J is always in the children's mind and sight until the end of the song. When a letter is removed a clap is substituted for the missing letter. All letters are returned when the final line of the song is sung to spell out the name of Jesus. To keep the letters turned correctly a * is placed on the top of the paper to show the child which way the letter stands. (Stars are above us, our star points up to heaven).

"I have a friend who's always there,
And Jesus is his name-o
J-E-S-U-S, J-E-S-U-S, J-E-S-U-S
And Jesus is his name-o"

(Remove a letter and sing again, clap for missing letter/s)

After all letters have been removed five claps are given for the letters then slow down and help children return all letters to finish the song and sing "And Jesus is his name-o" (Sent in by Dian Dodson)

Make a Fun Foam Watch

sunday school Fun foam watch bible craft from www.daniellesplace.comWhat you will need: Fun foam sheets, paper fastener, ruler, scissors, hole punch, markers, and small stapler

How to make:

1. Cut one circle about 2" in diameter or less for the watch face and draw numbers around the edge.

2. Cut one strip for the watch band about 1" x 7" or size to fit child, round off one end of the band. Have your children decorate the watch band with markers.

3. Cut two more strips about 1/4" x 2 1/2" for the straps to the hold the band together.

4. Punch a hole (just big enough to fit the fasteners in) through the middle of the watch face and through the watch band where you want to attach the face. Push the paper fastener through the back of the band and the watch face to attach. Open up the prongs. You can clip the prongs (the watch hands) shorter for younger children so they don't scratch themselves.

5. Wrap the 1/4" strips around the end of the watch band overlapping the ends around the back of the band. With the watch upside down and the overlapped part of the strips showing, insert the bottom half of the small stapler underneath the band and through the loop so that the overlapped part of the strips can be stapled together and to the band. (You can also glue them on with hot melt glue). Put the other strips about a half an inch to one inch above the first depending on the size of the child.

6. Write the Bible verse on the inside of the band.
