Not your grandmother's Sunday School crafts!
Crafts are the ultimate interactive activity. Have your tweens uplug from digital pursuits to check out these hands-on, Bible-focused projects that get the conversation-and the learning-going. Completely geared for today's savvy kids, each project can be customized to link the Bible teaching to real life. This mix of new and retro crafts captivates children. Fourth and fifth graders create a working compass, piñata, putty ball, crystal garden, and lots more using techniques like mosaic, decoupage, and duct tape. All the while they talk about faith and how it fits into their own lives. Each project can be completed in one class, and lessons include Bible references, memory verses, and teacher tips.
