Salvation - New Creation - Being Born Again

Bible Do-A-Dot Activity Sheets with Salvation Message and Bible Verses

Bible Ddo-A-Dot Activity Sheets with Salvation Message and Bible Verses

 

"Salvation 1, 2, 3" includes seven printable pages that work great with Do-A-Dot markers. Each page includes a number 1 - 7, with part of the salvation message and a corresponding Bible verse. Use these to introduce children to the salvation message. Let your children color each sheet with dotters, crayons, or colored pencils as you discuss each Bible verse.

 

Do-A-Dot Bible Activity Sheets  with Salvation Message and Bible Verses

 

These activity sheets were designed to be used with Do-A-Dot Art Markers, but crayons and colored pencils also work well. Dotters are a great alternative to water color paints because they are a lot less messy. Children can use them like stampers or make wide strokes by running the sponge across their papers. Overlapping the dots create new colors and effects. They are non-toxic and clean up easily with water. Children of all ages enjoy experimenting with them.

Cover Page - Salvation 1, 2, 3

1 - One - God sent his only son - John 3:16

2 - Two - Jesus died for you! - Romans 5:8

3 - Three - So you can be free! - John 8:36

4 - Four - Open the door - John 14:1

5 - Five - And you'll come alive! - Romans 6:11

Caterpillar Changing to a Butterfly Craft Stick Craft

Caterpillar turning into a Butterfly Craft Kids Can Make www.daniellesplace.com

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

What you will need:

Woodsies Mini Jumbo Craft Sticks -4.5" - 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.)

Pom poms

Chenille Stems

Acrylic Paint, Permanent Markers, Crayons, or Colored Pencils - (The washable markers don't work well because they smear.)

Aleene's Tacky Glue

10mm Wiggly Eyes

 

How to Make the Caterpillar:

1. To make the caterpillar glue pompoms onto one of the craft sticks. Glue on googly eyes and Chenille stems for the antennae.

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.

Folding Craft Stick Diagram

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 a butterfly 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.

8. To finish fold up the craft stick canvas and then glue the caterpillar onto the top of the butterfly craft stick picture.

Caterpillar Changing to a Butterfly Craft Kids Can Make www.daniellesplace.com

This craft is basically the same as the above craft except the crafts sticks unfold from the middle forming the wings.

1. First make the caterpillar by taping two sticks together on the front and back of the sticks. Glue the pompoms on the the center of the two sticks. Add the eyes and Chenille stem antenna.

2. To make the wings tape a craft stick to each side of the caterpillar craft sticks placing the tape on what will be the back of the butterfly. (See the directions above.)

3. Then turn the butterfly over and tape two more craft sticks to the first two. The tape will be on the opposite side of the first set of taped craft sticks.

4. Keep adding craft sticks to each side alternating the tape until the wings are long enough.

5. Draw wings onto the craft sticks with a pencil. If you make a mistake you can erase. Once you have the design you would like, paint the craft sticks.

6. When they are dry outline your design with a black marker, and then fan fold the wings to the back of the pompom body.

Guessing Game

Write the following words on separate pieces of paper: broom, window cleaner, vacuum cleaner, duster, toothpaste, shampoo, soap, washing machine, eraser, air freshener. 

Have the children take turns acting out the different words and guessing what they are.  When all the words have been guessed, ask the class what all the words have in common.  They all clean, remove, or cover up dirt or stains.  Explain that Jesus does the same things with our sins. When we confess our sins he forgives them and washes them away.

 

 

Salvation Verses Matchup Game

Salvation Bible Verse Printable  Matchup Game for Children's Ministry from www.daniellesplace.com

Children match up the beginning of the verses to the ends of the verses to make complete verses.

This game can be adjusted to children of different levels. To make the game easier print out the beginning Bible verse sheets and the ending Bible verse sheets onto different colors of card stock. You can also use half of the verses instead of all of them to make the game easier. Bible references are on the verse sheets so if children are having a hard time finding the matching verses, they can use their Bibles to help them.
