It’s Activity Time! Yeah! Let’s break out our Bible story crafts.
Now I have to admit that I am not the expert when it comes to instructing Bible story activities. I, like so many others, take and learn from other peoples lessons.
Below you will find a few video tutorials, links to on-line resources, and several book suggestions for presenting your kids with Bible story activities.
Before we get into the online resources, I want to give you a few book resources on presenting Bible story crafts:
The Encyclopedia of Bible Crafts for Preschoolers by Group Publishing
Crafts From Your Favorite Bible Stories by Kathy Ross
Bible Story Crafts and Projects Children Love by Group Publishing
Making Hallelujah Hats! Crafts and Activities Based on Bible Stories by Mary Doerfler-Dall
A Little Taste of God’s Love: Bible Story Recipes and Activities by Nate Evans
Big Book of Bible Story Art Activities by Henrietta Mears
Bible Story Crafts – A Christian Activity Book with Reproducible Pages, Ages 5-10 (Teacher Helper Series) by Sander Yawger and Corbin Hillam
Video tutorials, to me, are some of the best online resources. Here are a few, we collected that give you step-by-step instructions on creating some simple crafts with your kids.
1. Scripture Garland
2. Joseph Bible Craft Idea
3. Paul Escapes
4. Heart Pocket Bible Craft
5. Creation Bean Bags
So, what we’ve done here is given you reviews on some of the more popular resource sites out there on Bible story activities. You will find that a couple of these sites can be a teacher’s best friend in generating craft ideas.
An extremely resourceful site for teachers and parents looking for a variety activity ideas along with instructions, templates and printouts.
The creator of this site was trying to be as helpful as possible when putting together this resource for us. She even gave us other site links to go to if we don’t find what we are looking for on her site.
This is a great place to visit and get ideas for crafts and activities. They offer printouts, instructional aides and even video tutorials for presenting the crafts/activities. And the fact that this site is a forum makes it even more of a resource, because here you can ask a question of a community of folks with varied experience.
Danielle has provided activities to go with bible lessons, anytime activities and in-between lessons activities. Her site is an excellent resource for both teachers and parents alike. You will find templates, instructions and printouts here.
There is a downside. In order to printout her templates you must pay a yearly fee of $25.00 (last checked July, 2009) to become a member of her site.
DLTK Growing Together - Turn on Your Pop-up Blocker Before Entering
The site address is dltk-bible.com/printables.htm
While this site requires a bit more work on our part navigating through the pages, it does provide some fun activities. If you are willing to work your way through a series of pages, it can be worth it for the end product which provides you with templates, instructions and a variety of crafty ideas & printouts.
The one major downside to this site is all the pop-ups. If you have a pop-up blocker, I suggest turning it on for this particular site. While the info. on the site is useful, the pop-ups are not.
Bible Story Printables.com – Not Worth the Trouble
If you can work your way around all the Google Ads, you might find it worth your time to check out the Bible ABC worksheets. This site does have coloring pages, but oddly enough they drew Jesus with stick hands and legs.
As I worked my way through this site and its sister site Christian Preschool Printables.com, I felt that their primary goal was to get us to click the Google Ads rather than to provide us with quality bible story printables.
Well, that’s it! I hope you find the tools you need to continue enriching kids’ lives with fun, learning activities.
