The Bible teaches that Jesus is like both a lion and a lamb! Appropriate Age: K-5 (The younger the children the longer the craft will take. I recommend separating the lion and the lamb into two Sundays for K-2) Time Needed: 30 minutes for craft alone depending upon how much the teacher preps ahead of time and how many adults helpers you have.
Target Age: 2nd-5th grade Key Verse: John 3:8 “The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” Time Needed: 20 minutes for the craft only (The children may spend a long time decorating their pinwheel. The length of craft depends on how detailed your children will want to decorate. You know your children best and can judge how long this craft will take.)
Try this easy paper crown craft project for kids to remind them Jesus is King. All you will need is the template below, card stock printing paper, coloring markers, child-friendly scissors, and a stapler. We used this cut-out crown in our Wednesday night children’s ministry. It would also be useful as a Sunday School or VBS craft.
Here is a beautiful craft project we used in our children’s ministry. The idea was to protect a portion of paper with masking tape as the children painted around it. Once dry, we removed the masking tape to reveal the shape of a cross. The page includes this verse from Hebrews 7:25.
More than ever, children need to learn to trust God’s promises for their own lives. This simple activity is designed with that end in mind. It would be appropriate as part of a lesson on God’s promise to Noah or any lesson on God’s promises.

When children make a project about God, they create a memory and tactile connection with the Bible verse they just learned in class. Themes like thankfulness, the Gospel, the Holy Spirit, how to praise Jesus, and love. It’s more than cutting up paper, gluing it back together, and adding some painted colors. It’s a time of hands-on reflection on the truth they are learning. It’s also a powerful reminder when that project sits at home in their bedroom.
We asked Google, “Why are arts and crafts important?”
Arts and craft activities help instill a sense of achievement and pride in children, boosting their self-confidence. The opportunity to create whatever a child desires helps foster creativity. A child will learn to make correct and effective decisions by facing and solving artistic challenges.
When creating an arts and crafts project, children are able to develop their fine motor skills. … Art also allows for your child to expand their essential vocabulary. They’ll learn the names of different shapes, colors, and materials without it seeming like a chore or a memorization exercise.
As kids manipulate a paintbrush, their fine motor skills improve. … Most important perhaps, when kids feel good while they are creating, art helps boost self-confidence. And children who feel able to experiment and to make mistakes feel free to invent new ways of thinking, which extends well beyond the craft room
