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.
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 –
Colour the background scene and stick onto paper plate to make a back drop
Add doors, windows and steps to house and glue onto the plate in the foreground
Add tissue paper/sugar paper to make paths/grass/sand
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.
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……..…….black sugar paper, black felt tip pen, scissors, glue and paper plate.
