And at the bottom of the wreath you’ll place a festive crimson banner that reads, “God’s Greatest Gift!”
This wreath would be the PERFECT complementary craft for the lessons in A Savior is Given: Leader’s Guide.
And you can’t beat the price!
I love “Color Your Own” crafts because they give kids the freedom to personalize their projects.
This canvas stocking offers kids a cute black-and-white picture of Mary, Joseph, a shepherd, and some sheep with Jesus at the manger for children to color.
And this Christmas stocking craft boasts a wonderful message, too:
God so loved the world He gave His only Son.
Think about the motivation behind Christ’s arrival on earth as you and your kids put together this manger sign craft…
And don’t miss the incredible depth of God’s love for you in sending Jesus as a human. Wow!
Need a full curriculum for Advent or Christmas? Check out my 5-week Bible curriculum on the birth of Christ: “A Savior is Given!”
This cheerfully-colored craft is eye-catching and unique!
Plus, it packs a solid Scriptural message, too, with multiple direct quotations from the Bible containing promises about the Savior.
This is another simple craft that would go very well with the lessons in A Savior is Given!
I love it when a Christmas craft project specifically ties the birth of Christ to the Gospel. After all, that’s why He came–to save sinners like you and me!
I definitely want my kids to catch that all-important fact when I teach about the birth of Christ. And I appreciate it when I find a cheap, easy craft that clearly connects Christ’s birth with the Gospel message.
This striking stable silhouette craft does exactly that, with its straightforward biblical message:
Believe on the Lord Jesus and you will be saved.
It doesn’t really get any clearer than that! 🙂
This is another sweet and easy craft that simply states:
God’s great love sent the Son.
Then it includes a quote from Luke 2:11 about a Savior being born.
The text is featured on a wintery blue and white cross, with a silhouetted scene of Mary and Joseph kneeling by the manger, and a glittery silver star overhead.
Use a simple tissue paper layering technique to create a vibrant, colorful stained glass effect behind a silhouette featuring the wise men who came from afar to visit Jesus.
Includes easy self-adhesive foam pieces and a satin cord to hang the finished craft.
Here’s another even more eye-catching silhouette tissue paper craft!
The one features multiple scenes from the story of Christ’s birth, silhouetted against a beautiful tissue paper background. Then, the scenes easily fold together to create a 3-D paper lantern!
Place a battery-operated tea light inside to light up the silhouette scenes.
This is a REALLY neat craft. I think older kids, in particular, will enjoy making this project.
This sparkly star ornament craft borrows a line from a well-known Christmas carol, encouraging kids to join in worship of Jesus the Savior.
Includes dazzling rhinestones for an extra little pop!
This craft uses an unusual push-through technique for the pony beads to create 2 unique textured ornaments–a star and a stable.
All the pieces come pre-packaged, which makes your life easy. Just open the package and get started crafting!
