Toddler Sunday School Crafts for Life of David Part 3

We completed our lesson series about David with the stories of David and Jonathan’s friendship and David becoming king.  As a paper crafter, I love using paper punches for my projects.  All the punches shown in this post are from Stampin’ Up!  I have used the Word Window punch for so many projects through the years.  To get your own, please visit my online store.  I’ve included a page of the verses and names for you to download.

The quiver is made from a rectangle of brown construction paper with a brown pipe cleaner loop on the back. The arrows were made from craft sticks and paper punch art using Stampin’ Up! punches.

Toddler Sunday School Crafts for Life of David Part 2

As we continue our series of lessons on the Life of David, we created these crafts for the story of David and Goliath.  I used this baker’s clay recipe to create a batch of “stones” for each child to add to the pouch they made.  You can download the template for the pouch and the verse.

Recipe for DIY Stones
Brown ink pad refills were used to color the “stones”.

We made a simple pouch from brown construction paper adding yarn for the handle.

 

Toddler Sunday School Crafts for Life of David Part 1

Since we decided to combine our preschool class with my PreK-1st class, my Sunday morning class starts with two 5 year old girls for about 30 minutes. Then we add 4-8 mostly three year old boys and girls from the classroom next door for songs, story, and craft time.  I decided to pick a series of Bible stories about the same person for our first lessons together.  We are learning about the life of David.  I planned simple crafts for the kids that required some advance preparation.  I want the kids to have a good reminder of the lesson each Sunday.

David the Shepherd

David the Shepherd Craft
The sheep are made from two paper punches – a scallop circle and a five-petal flower. I cut off two of the petals to make the feet and used the other three petals to make the face and ears.

David Sings to God

David Plays the Harp Craft
Glue craft sticks together at least one day in advance and allow to dry. Let the children add the rubber bands and decorate the harp with markers.
