Easy Bible Crafts and Activities for Kids
There is something lovely about doing crafts and activities with eager minds! Kids love to do crafts because they spark their imagination, move an abstract idea or story to concrete, and reinforce a lesson or teaching; not to mention that they are often sensory, messy, and fun!
This list of Bible crafts for kids takes the work out of scouring the internet for ideas and gives you the best of the best out there. The work has already been done for you!
These crafts are geared to the preschool and early elementary age groups, but they can be modified and used with a variety of ages. The 3D Noah’s Ark template in this list would actually be great for a teenager or even an adult (I know I would enjoy it!).
Old Testament Bible Crafts
The Old Testament stories are intriguing to children and they love imagining the possibilities of these stories. Here are some of my favorite Old Testament Bible crafts.
7 Days of Creation Globe – Christian Preschool Printables
This honestly has to be one of the most adorable 7 Days of Creation crafts that I have ever seen! It’s so creative and would be so much fun to do in any Sunday School class, homeschool setting, or classroom!
Adam and Eve Coloring Pages – Healing Home
Daniel and the Lion’s Den – Two Pink Peonies
This one is certainly intended for younger ages as it is very simple and quick. Which may be perfect for you! Daniel and the Lion’s Den from Daniel 6 is a wonderful story to teach children about obeying and trusting God. The craft is from Two Pink Peonies and is truly adorable!
3D Noah’s Ark Craft – Not Just Paper Boutique
This craft idea is not free! It is a template available to purchase on Etsy, but it is so aesthetically adorable, that I had to include it in this list. It is certainly a more advanced craft and maybe even would be considered a nursery decoration. Regardless, it is an adorable option for doing a Bible craft!
Noah’s Ark Puzzle Craft – Inspire the Mom
This craft round-up has not one but five different craft templates to choose from. I specifically liked the Noah’s Ark puzzle sheet, but she has a variety of adorable other activities and crafts to inspire you!
Jonah and the Whale Coloring – Healing Home
This fun and free (yes free!) pack comes with coloring, a spinner craft, a puzzle, and some patterns and tracing pages. It’s a great Bible craft for reinforcing this intriguing story from the Old Testament.
Free Joseph’s Coat Printable – Two Pink Peonies
This is a completely free coloring page by Two Pink Peonies. You can use tempura paint sticks (which is super fun) or get creative with glitter, markers, crayons, and other craft supplies! The sky is the limit!
New Testament Bible Crafts
In steps the Savior of the world! The Old Testament sure did have some wonderful Bible crafts for kids, but the New Testament will have just as many wonderful crafts! From crafts illustrating the miracles of Christ to the death and resurrection, we’ve got you covered with more delightful New Testament crafts for kids!
Feeding the 5,000 – Jesus without Language
You are going to want to check out this amazing website. I love how Jesus without Langauge is opperating and running her ministry. Everything is based on donations, plus she has some truly high-quality crafts and printables to use for kids ministry! This little 3D craft is from the story of Jesus feeding the 5,000 that can be found in Matthew 14:13-21, Mark 6:31-44, Luke 9:12-17, and John 6:1-14.
Color your Own Slap Bracelet – Amazon
This is so cool! What a concept and what a price. This product frequently goes on sale, so if you are not in a rush, it might be worth it to check back a few times to see if it goes down. I’ve seen the 72 pieces as low as $15.99! That’s just about $.22 a piece! Great for larger events.
Armor of God Activity – Healing Home
This one comes from my very own library/vault of freebies, crafts, and activities. My Kids Bible Vault is filled to the brim with fun printables that reinforce the biblical truths of the Bible. This past winter my kids were introduced to the idea of the Armor of God and then this summer it truly came alive for them when they went to a Keepers of the Kingdom VBS by Answers in Genesis.
These printables were inspired by their curiosity and imagination as they learned what each part of the armor of God represents. My 5-year-old almost daily references the Armor of God in some capacity. Praise God! In this activity, you will find crafts, coloring pages, and activities to reinforce Ephesians 6:14-17.
Little Sheet Craft – One Little Project
This little sheet craft is great for illustrating a variety of Bible stories from the New and Old Testaments. However, I personally think that the Parable of the Lost sheep in Matthew (Matthew 18:12–14) and Luke (Luke 15:3–7) is one of the most popular ways that this craft can be used.
Jesus Calms the Storm – Mommy Snippets
Isn’t this craft just adorable? I mean who would have thought to use Q-tips as people? What a fantastic idea! Not only is it a great Bible craft for Sunday School classrooms (or any learning environment!), but it also is a fantastic reminder for anyone that Jesus never leaves us or forsakes us!
Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”Hebrews 13:5 ESV
This craft specifically is meant to illustrate the Bible story of Jesus calming the storm from Matthew 8:23-34. You can read about the story here.
This one might be a little out of the budget for some, but it is a great way to reinforce the Beatitudes from Matthew 5:1-12.
Resurrection Watercolor Craft – Made to Be a Momma
This one is cute and it would be excellent for older ages because it has some more advanced features. The craft and free printable come from Made to be a Momma and are great for teaching about the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Word of God Craft – Made to be a Momma
This one isn’t based on any specific story in the New Testament, but it teaches the importance of the Word of God. It’s another craft that is a little more advanced, but certainly will be a ‘keeper’ when you go to clean out your child’s abundance of craft projects!
Jesus Walks with Us Craft – Amazon
This is another craft find from good ole’ Amazon! Sometimes we just need the ease of something shipped to us! This craft centers around the idea that ‘Jesus walks with us’. Another great bulk activity for a larger event!
Holiday Bible Crafts
The holidays are the perfect time to dive into Bible crafts for kids. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter are important holidays in the Christian faith and they have wonderful traditions, concepts, and themes that are great to reinforce with the power of a craft!
Christmas tends to be the time of the year when moms who are not typically ‘craft moms’ come out of the closet and attempt to suddenly become the ultimate crafty mom! If that describes you then you might need this reminder: you don’t have to be a ‘craft mom’ unless you want to! Chances are, you have other strengths that your kids love! However, if you want to try some crafts during the Christmas season, I’ve picked out some very easy ones to achieve!
Baby Jesus Craft – Kids Craft Room
Not only does this make a fun craft during Christmas, but it could also be used as a Christmas card or thank you for teachers or other service workers. It also comes with multiple multicultural options if that is important to you!
Nativity Ornament – Kid-Friendly Things to Do
This is another baby Jesus craft, but this time it is an easy one to make into an ornament. The best part is that you could do this one on a whim because chances are you have most or all of the supplies you need lying around your home!
Nativity Puppets – Kids Craft Room Store
This is one of those crafts that you do have to purchase, but I looked for quite a while for finger puppets and this one is the best one that I found! The printable includes Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus, three kings, an angel, a shepherd, a sheep, and a donkey. It also comes in full color and black and white for your kids to color themselves!
Christmas Coloring Pages With Scripture – Healing Home
This is another coloring activity, but it’s free, so we already love it just because of that! There are nativity pages and additional generic Christmas coloring.
Hint – There is an upgrade pack in this post with an additional 7 Christian Christmas activities! Worth the upgrade!
Easter Placemat Coloring Sheet – Healing Home
This fun Easter placemat sheet is a great way to entertain children while they wait for their Easter dinner. It’s a completely free download! No email is required!
Easter Cube Story – Mindy Jones Blog
Don’t you love it when things are really free? Mindy Jones is one of my favorite mom bloggers out there and I love this Easter story cube printable that she offers. It’s a great way to make sure your child truly understands the concepts of the Easter and resurrection story!
Fall Bible Crafts
Acts of Kindness Thanksgiving Tree – Mindy Jones Blog
This printable is again by my friend Mindy Jones and it’s a lovely way to enjoy your kids’ fingerprints and keep them forever on paper, while also talking about the importance of kindness in your family’s lives.
I am Thankful Pumpkin Craft – Christian Preschool Printables
I almost cannot get over how adorable this idea is! It is a pumpkin pocket with printables that children can name off while they put them into the pumpkin. A great activity for teaching gratitude!
Pumpkin Prayer Craft and Printables – Healing Home
Have you ever wondered how you could turn your annual pumpkin carving into a biblical activity? Well, now you can. The author of this pumpkin prayer is unknown, but it is a powerful activity to do as a family as you carve your pumpkin and think about Jesus!
Our Top 3 Bible Crafts for Kids
Before we go further, I want to mention one more Bible craft option that we love and that is the Hello Bible Box. It is a subscription box, but it’s so much more than just a box you get in the mail. Every month you will get a Bible story and activities and crafts to reinforce the biblical concepts of the story. They have two types. One is a Junior box and the other is their regular box for ages 5-10.
