Adam and Eve Crafts and Printables

The story of Adam and Eve and the serpent in the Jesus Storybook Bible is entitled, “The Terrible Lie” and reminds me of the many lies we often believe about God’s love for us and our need for him.

Even though Adam and Eve started the human race on a long journey, the story of our relationship with God does not end there. God continued and continues to pursue a relationship with each of us.

This is another story with a multitude of craft ideas available including apples, trees, and snakes.

Bible Verse Coloring Pages Bundle

My dear friend Shelley Farrar Coleman has written a book outlining 20 lessons she learned from her father, Trav Farrar. He was a brick layer by trade and each lesson is another brick to you and your family’s foundation. The book includes worksheets, coloring pages, and resources for each brick (lesson). You can find the book and more details at AmIBeingTrav.com.

I’m sharing the coloring pages I created to go along with the book. The verses included are: Proverbs 17:22, Ecclesiastes 3:4, Hebrews 13:2, John 3:23, 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, Proverbs 18:24, Psalm 64:1, 1 Peter 3:11, Psalm 5:3, Proverbs 31:8-9, Ephesians 4:32, Matthew 4:19, Proverbs 22:6, Isaiah 41:10, and Psalm 138:8. I also designed a bookmark featuring Joshua 24:15, 

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

I’ve added all the bible verse coloring pages as a bundle in the resource library.

Palm Sunday and Easter Crafts

As we approach Holy Week each year, the thought that comes to mind is Jesus’ determination to fulfill his calling as he sets his face toward Jerusalem. Knowing what is to come, he grieves not for himself, but for God’s people.

Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.

John 13:34

Then, what a difference a week makes. It starts with such joy and celebration among the common people and plotting among the leaders. How alone Jesus must have felt even in the midst of the cheers of Hosanna. He knew what was to come in the days ahead.

Palm Sunday and Easter Crafts

The children’s crafts I’ve made focus on the joy. The joy of the triumphant entry. The joy of the angel’s declaration, “He is not here. He is risen.” As adults, we know the somber days in between. And children can sense are mood even if they are not old enough for all the details.

This is one of my favorite Easter songs.

 

The crafts are two different versions of dioramas. I created both a black/white version to color and a full-color version. You can print on copy paper or card stock.

Cutting and folding tips for the Palm Sunday diorama are shown below.

Cut, color, fold, and glue as shown in the example.

The diorama template for the Empty Tomb craft is an idea from my card-making days. The best way to understand the folds is to look at the folding image in the printable.

May we always celebrate the miracle of the Empty Tomb.
