Several Old Testament prophets foretold the birth of the Messiah. This story focuses on passages from Isaiah and Micah. After learning about the prophets’ special Christmas message, kids can create this Christmas card to send their own Christmas message.
Crafts for Kids
Below is a list of kids crafts appropriate for home, church, or school use. Crafts are activities that require cutting, gluing and/or additional resources such as tape, craft sticks, and yarn.
Each activity provides a simple suggested learning outcome, a list of needed supplies, and step-by-step instructions with photos to help you and the children prepare for and complete each craft with ease.
In each case we also provide a downloadable PDF of the activity (with pictures) in case it's easier for you simply to download and print the instructions rather than follow them online.
Our God is a big God who is able to accomplish His purposes. We may not always understand what those purposes are, but we can trust that God is able to do what He wants to do. This craft will help children remember the way in which Peter was rescued from jail.
Not long after Pentecost, Peter encountered a lame man and healed him in Jesus’ name. The man’s healing demonstrated that Jesus’ power was now working through His disciples. This fun craft will remind children that God works miracles through His people.
As Paul traveled and talked to people about Jesus, individuals like Lydia placed their faith in Jesus and became Christians. The Bible says Lydia sold purple fabric. This craft will help remind children about Lydia’s conversion.
When Paul was saved, it wasn’t just the events on the road to Damascus that were dramatic. His whole life was changed rather dramatically. This flip-over craft will teach children that you become a new person when you are saved.
When Paul became a Christian, he became a strong advocate for Christ. This caused him to make enemies of his old friends. When they plotted to kill him, Paul managed to escape. This craft will help children remember how the Lord delivered Paul from his enemies.
In John chapter 3, Jesus talked to Nicodemus about the “new birth.” When we are saved and become Christians, we are “born again.” This cute heart craft will remind children that when we are born again we are given a new heart and a new life.
There are many ways to show our love for Jesus. Mary (sister to Lazarus and Martha) once anointed Jesus’ feet with perfume. This craft will help remind children that prayer is one way we show our love for Jesus, just like Mary showed her love for Jesus.
After the angel appeared to Joseph and explained that Mary’s baby would be the Messiah, Joseph no doubt talked to Mary about the angel’s visit. This Christmas tree ornament will help kids remember that Jesus was a special baby, but born in a humble place.
The Apostle John wrote to churches and encouraged them to love each other as well as others because they had been the recipients of God’s love. This hanging mobile craft will help remind children that God first loved us and we should, therefore, love others.
