Kids' crafts add a creative aspect to weekly Sunday School lessons. Many Sunday School craft ideas work well for different Bible topics, while others are specific to certain stories or events. You can adapt the craft activities to fit younger children by providing templates or printed pages as the base for the crafts.

These small prayer booklets are easy to tuck into a bag or pocket, so kids can readily access them when they want to pray for someone. A toilet paper tube works well as a carrying case for the prayer booklet. Have the kids decorate their tubes using paint or construction paper. A good option for decorating the tubes is to draw pictures of the people they pray for and who are important to them. They can create the prayer booklets by cutting rectangles of construction paper and stapling them together. Make sure the booklets are small enough to fit inside the tubes when they're rolled up.
Bible Character Puppets
Puppets are simple to create and have a variety of uses for Sunday School activities. One of the easiest ways to create puppets to resemble people in the Bible is to cut the body shapes from construction paper. For a more sturdy option, use craft foam as the base. Glue the character shapes to a craft stick or paint stirring stick to create the handle for the puppet. Let the kids add details to the characters to resemble Bible figures. They can then use the puppets to retell the stories you're studying.
This Sunday School mobile idea encourages kids to think of the things that God made. First, they draw pictures of the different items which will hang from the mobile. Then, they cut out the pictures and attach them to lengths of string. A hanger or a paper plate works well as the base for the mobile, with the pictures dangling below it. Hang all the mobiles around the Sunday School classroom as a colourful supplement to the Creation lessons.
Joseph's Coat of Many Colors
This craft recreates Joseph's famous coat of many colours. You'll need a coat pattern for each child printed on card stock or other sturdy paper. The kids cut out the coats before covering them with pieces of tissue paper in lots of different colours. Cut up the tissue paper before class to make the project move faster. Display the coats in the Sunday School room.
