There are so many benefits to doing something visual and hands-on like crafts, especially when it comes to teaching your kids about God each day.

We love doing crafts, but I’ll be honest, it wasn’t something that came naturally to me! It took me a long time to find simple, meaningful crafts to do with my daughter as she got older.

One great thing about THIS list of easy bible crafts, the search has already been done for you and they are all FREE! 🙌🏻

Your kids can also keep most of these unique crafts and play with them! You won’t have to go spend money on toys, and also fill their toy bins with things that will teach them about God and His Word.

These crafts may be geared towards the preschool age, but these can definitely be enjoyed by toddlers, older kids, and the whole family together.

They are also great for doing at home as a rainy day activity, during family devotion time, for homeschool, and perfect for all my kids’ Sunday School teachers out there!!

Without further ado here are 50+ fun and easy Bible crafts your kids will love…

Then, cut out a small white circle and blue oval – draw a face on the circle and place both on top to look like baby Jesus on the handprint.

Cut around the handprint with the scalloped edge scissors, hole punch a small hole at the top, tie a string/ribbon through, and ta-da! You are done! 🙂

I would also recommend writing their name, age, and the date on the back!
