References to Elijah run throughout the Bible from the Old Testament story of him being fed by the ravens to his appearance to Jesus in the New Testament. In Christian Sunday school, the stories of Elijah are the basis for some of the most popular lesson plans. In order to reinforce the learning of these stories, many Sunday-school teachers have their students do Elijah Bible crafts.

Elijah Collage

Kids can look through magazines to find photos that relate to the story of Elijah. They can paste these onto construction paper and write their memory verses on them. Some of the visual elements of the Elijah stories in the Bible include ravens, bread, the Ba'al, and Jesus meeting with Elijah on the mountaintop during the Transfiguration. These collages can be hung on the notice board in the room where the kids have their Sunday-school classes. The collages can be given back to the children to take home once the study unit on Elijah is completed.

Elijah Raven Hand Puppets

One of the most told stories about Elijah is the story of the ravens bringing Elijah food as God had promised. Sunday-school teachers can help their students remember the story better by having them create paper-bag hand puppets of the ravens. Teachers need lunch-sized brown paper bags, construction paper, scissors, glue, pencils and crayons to complete this project. The project can be done during Sunday school and then picked up after church ends so the glue has time to dry.

Framed Bible Verses

For older kids starting to learn memory verses, this craft combines help with memorisation and something artistic. Frames and paper can be purchased at a dollar store, and the teacher can write the verses on the board. Having the children copy their own verses as well as spend time decorating the paper that the verses are on is an effective way to help them.

Challenge of Ba'al Mural

The story of Elijah and the Ba'al is another popular one and lends itself to narrative storytelling, which can be accomplished by having the kids make a mural. This project can be done on a large sheet of butcher paper, and each child can create one element of the story. The pupils in the class can draw and then paint or colour the story of Elijah and the Ba'al as the story progresses.

To make visual sense, the beginning of the story should be on the left-hand side of the mural and progress to the right until the story is told. This idea also works well with construction paper figures on the mural instead of drawings.
