Palm Sunday Craft to make at home

This leaf craft for Palm Sunday is to make at home. All our groups are closed – so this is somthing to make that uses a cereal box, crayons, pens, green pictures cut from magazines (I used a gardening catalogue) and some glue. Hopefully these are things that we have at home. If you don’t have any glue then crayons, pencils and pens will be great.

Cut a leaf shape out of your cereal box – make it as large as the box shape will allow! And decorate.

There is a short toddler group Palm Sunday story here.

Shepherd craft

Luke tells us that shepherds were told that the Saviour had been born!

‘For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord’ Luke 2:11

So here are some shepherds to make … using paper plates

All you need to make these shepherds – paper plates,pipe cleaners, wool, tissue paper and circles.

Bible town scene to make

This is one of my favourite Holiday Bible Club crafts that I’ve done. It fits with so many stories as it is just a scene of a town. It’s fun to make and 3D.

All you need is

Square paper plate (need to be quite sturdy)

Tissue paper/sugar paper

Background scene printed onto card – same size in width as the centre of the paper plate with about an inch of card that can be folded to make a flap which will be glued so the scene stands on the paper plate

Felt tips for colouring the scene

Square block of wood to make a house – doors and windows and outside steps to be added by the children

To Assemble the children need to –

  1. Colour the background scene and stick onto paper plate to make a back drop
  2. Add doors, windows and steps to house and glue onto the plate in the foreground
  3. Add tissue paper/sugar paper to make paths/grass/sand

We bought the background scene from creativeforkids.com

Lollipop stick weaving!

Most things on my blog are for toddlers but this is something for older children and adults! We’ve been having a go at this weaving at our after school Bible Club and at our church fete. Lots of concentration required at first. But once you get the hang of it it’s really relaxing.

You need: lollipop sticks or similar (You can glue them together or just hold them together.) Yarn and scissors.

The above photo is what the weaving should look like from the back. Once you’ve got off to a good start trim the end that was near to your knot.

End result! You can change the colour of the yarn if you wish.

Easter and Spring craft ideas

Here are some Easter and Spring craft ideas that I’ve enjoyed making over the past few years.

Paper plate lion

I’m putting together some paper plate crafts for a Noah’s Ark themed family event. I’ve made a lion before with wool for the mane but fancied a change so have used mini cup cake liners. As parents are there to make the crafts alongside their children there will be minimal prep –

all you need – cake liners in orange and yellow, yellow tissue paper, googly eyes……..IMG_1416IMG_1417…….black sugar paper, black felt tip pen, scissors, glue and paper plate.

Use the wrong side of the plate to make the lion.

 

Holiday Bible Club Crafts

We are getting ready for a HBC – these three crafts fit our sport theme. The paper bags, trophy and flag are all from ‘the little crafty bugs company’. The template for the paper bag runner puppet (it cost $4 ) is from ‘teachers pay teachers’.

To decorate each craft we’ve got googly eyes, wool, crayons, cake cases, tissue paper, stickers, pens and crayons…
