Adam and Eve Sinned Bible Craft
Note: This craft is also available as a downloadable PDF.
Bible Story: Adam and Eve Sinned
Bible Text: Genesis 3:1-7
Suggested Learning Outcome: This engaging craft will help children remember that although God gives us many good things, just like He gave Adam and Eve a beautiful garden, disobedience can mess things up.
- Bathroom tissue rollers (one for each student)
- Green pipe cleaners (one for each student)
- Washable paint (any “fruit” color)
- Green construction paper
- Wipes (if needed for cleanup)
Draw and cut a green tree top shape from green construction paper approximately 4 in. wide (1 for each student). See Image One.
Step 1. Give each student a green tree top shape. Explain that they will be putting beautiful fruit on this tree just as God put lovely fruit and flowers in the Garden of Eden for Adam and Eve.
Step 2. Provide washable paint for students to roll their thumbs in, or you can carefully paint each student’s thumb in paint. Guide the students in creating thumbprint fruit on their green tree top. See Image Two. Clean student’s thumbs after this step.
Step 3. Give each student a bathroom tissue roller and guide them in carefully gluing their tree tops to the front of the roller. See Image Three. Emphasize how good it was that God provided trees and plants in the garden to help take care of Adam of Eve.
Step 4. Give each student a green pipe cleaner and remind the students how things did not stay wonderful in the Garden of Eden. When Adam and Eve disobeyed God and listened to the snake, everything changed. Guide the children in wrapping their green pipe cleaner “snake” around the trunk of the tree and up to the fruit. Tape the pipe cleaner snake into place to secure it. See Image Four.
