Sunday School Craft: Coat of Many Colors

    I really like this idea. I have 2 year olds, so I used mini colored pom-poms instead of the tissue paper, and I glued a verse on the other side of the jacket. Great activity!

    I did a coat of many colors project with my kids that they loved. It’s a little messy so I had them wear clothes that could get dirty and put plastic tables clothes on the tables. I bought t-shirts that were too big for the kids to look like robes and let them paint them with finger paint. They loved decorating their shirts, it took about 3 weeks to finish and they dried between the weeks, and when they were all done they showed them in front of the congregation.
