Children (Kids) Art & Craft Ideas and Projects
Wondering about what to do to keep the children in your charge entertained in an educational and constructive way?
Well look no further!
ANGELS are a very good and current theme to use for creating an entire lesson plan for children all year round. They can be first taught the importance of Angels, the names of some Angels, how Angels were featured in the bible, what Angels do etc.
For example, in the Bible, Angels were used to:
1. Bring messages from God to people: see Luke 1:26-28 (The Angel Gabriel told Mary that she would have Baby Jesus).
2. Warn people: see Matthew 2:13-15 (Joseph was warned in a dream, by an Angel of God, that King Herod would be looking to kill Baby Jesus).
3. Protect people: see Psalm 91:11-13 ("God will put His angels in charge of you to protect you wherever you go.")
In this lens (article) you will find some easy, inexpensive and creative Angel art and craft ideas to keep your Sunday School, regular school or stay-at-home school kids entertained and happy.
Choose from an interesting selection of Books (Storybooks and Coloring books), Crafts, Games, and Drawings.

Being thankful is always a God thing. Jesus noted the thankfulness of only 1 of the 9 lepers who he healed. This book could help you begin your lessons in thankfulness as you show a child or children how angels protect and help them and how to be thankful to their guardian angel and all other helpful angels.
