Paper Plate Bible Crafts
Paper Plate Bible Crafts
Every childrens ministry needs stacks and stacks of paper plates. They are indispensable and not just for eating. There are so many ideas online for Bible crafts made out of paper plates. I have provided a few from my website and will update as I create new ones. Happy crafting!
Daniel In The Lions Den
Daniel got in trouble for obeying and worshipping God. Even though his life was in danger Daniel had to trust God and placed his faith in Him. God was always with Daniel, He never abandoned him. Through this trial God was glorified and His name was proclaimed throughout the kingdom.
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you.” Isaiah 43:2
Noah’s ark is a favorite Bible story for many children, and this easy paper plate craft is a great way for kids to make a fun take home reminder of the lesson.
The Miracle Of The Fish And The Coin
Jesus did many miracles while on earth. One that is generally not talked a lot about was telling Peter to open a fish’s mouth and having him find a coin inside. This would be a great story to do for your children’s ministry.
We Will Serve The Lord Table Top
I found this version online and immediately fell in love with it. Sadly no template was available. So I decided to come up with my own. Place this finished craft on your mantle or table.
Sing To The Lord Tambourine
“Sing praise to the Lord, you His godly ones, and give thanks to His holy name.” Psalm 30:4
God The Creator And Sustainer
You can find dozens and dozens of crafts online to help you teach the kiddos that God is the Creator. Many times we forget to emphasize to the kids that He is also our sustainer.
God not only created everything around us, but He has total control over everything we see. Make this an emphasis to the kiddos. Tell them every day they wake up it is because God has given them life. God makes the sun come up. He blesses us with food for our tables. He is very merciful towards us each and every day.
“You, Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, And the heavens are the works of Your hands.” Hebrews 1:10
Seek Ye First
Worrying about our needs is not trusting God. We want our kiddos to not worry about their needs, but rather trust God to take care of them.
Make sure you clarify to the kiddos what those needs are. You find them in the context of the passage. “…as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on.” Matthew 6:25 We don’t want our kids going home thinking God promises to get them a new Xbox :)
“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “ Matthew 6:33
