The Twelve Disciples Folding Craft Stick Bible Craft for Sunday School

The Disciples Folding Craft Stick Bible Craft for Sunday School www.daniellesplace.com

 

The craft sticks are taped together so that when they are pushed together from the sides they fan fold up into a compact stack of sticks for storage. Unfold the stack and the disciples appear standing next to each. Children will enjoy drawing each of the disciples and then writing the names of the disciples on the back of the sticks.

What you will need:

Woodsies 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 on the tape.)

How to Make the Disciple's Folding Craft Stick Display:

1. This technique will create two sets of twelve people. Place two sticks together, side by side, and tape them together covering both the sticks with the tape. You don't have to cover the rounded ends of the sticks. If you line the sticks up so that they aren't even on the side, you will have people of different heights.

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

3. 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.

4. 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 twelve craft sticks in a row.

5. 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.

6. Cut a straight line down the row of craft sticks. It is much easier to cut the craft sticks with the tape on them because the craft sticks don't crack. Use a good quality scissors to cut the sticks.

Children can use permanent markers, pens, or colored pencils to draw the disciples faces, hair, and clothes on the sticks. Have them write the disciples' names on the back of the sticks.

If a child messes up while working on his canvas, you can pull off the tape where he messed up and replace it with new tape.
