Sweeter Than Honey! Bible Craft Ideas for Psalm 119

Print Friendly and PDF

God’s Word is sweeter than honey! The Bible guards and guides our lives, and when we let it fill us, it’s much more satisfying than the tastiest of sugar—and doesn’t give cavities! These crafts celebrate the verses of Psalm 119, reminding us that we should meditate on God’s law and love as a sweet source of strength. A “honey pot bookmark” can be used for Bibles to recall the sweetness of Scripture. A “honey nut bracelet” offers a fun fine motor activity that can be used as a snack and jewelry! And a “Sweet Things Collage” uses varied sweet things to remember that God’s Word is the most wonderful of all things to consume!
