Holiday Bible Club Craft (2)

We used a wooden spoon based craft for the bible story about Jesus healing a man who had leprosy. You can read the story in Matthew 8.

The children drew a sad face one side of the spoon and a happy face the other. We used kitchen roll for the clothes – a fairly good quality brand that the children could decorate with felt pens. The arms and belt are pipe cleaners. Use a slighty longer pipe cleaner for the arms.

To make –

Draw the faces on the spoon and write name on the spoon handle

Colour/decorate the square of kitchen roll – I cut the kitchen roll squares into quarters which made them just the right size for our small wooden spoons. Once coloured fold the quarter in half and then in half again and make a small cut on the fold. Slide the spoon through this and then add the arms. Finally add the belt.

This basic idea can be used for retelling lots of Bible stories. Large wooden spoons make great puppets too. Have a look at this idea here.

 

Holiday Bible Club Crafts (1)

Do you remember our HBC scenery?  We bought the picture for the scenery from http://www.creativeforkids.com and so we were able to use the picture of a Bible time scene in miniature to make a craft.

The base is a square paper plate. The house is a rectangle block of wood painted with emulsion. Tissue paper makes the grass/sand.

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…
