Here comes the Christian season of ups and downs, highs and lows. Lent will be upon us soon. It is a wonderful time of reflection and meditation and prayer. Jesus spent this time in the wilderness doing just that. If you are studying lent with your church children, there are a few crafts from Guildcraft Arts & Crafts that would be a nice addition to any curriculum.

 

Framed Prayer Hands are a special craft and a hit with kids!

 

Prayer Journals are a good activity during lent to reflect and record prayers.

 

 

 

 

Prayer Boxes are sturdy and will last all year.  Prayer requests or thoughts or questions can be saved in this special box!

 

 

Once we hit Palm Sunday, we are filled with Hosannas and celebration! There is an electric energy present on this day! Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey as the people cheered and waved palms. Use this day to celebrate those highs with some crafts that symbolize the ride into Jerusalem.

 

 

Palm Leaves can be made and used during worship!

 

 

 

This energy and celebration is a short-lived beginning to Easter week. Soon after, Jesus will be questioned and knowing His fate, breaks bread with His disciples during the Last Supper. This high quality craft from Guildcraft Arts & Crafts creates a visual reminder of this special event.

In His anguish, Jesus prays to His Father on the Mount of Olives.

 

Let’s follow His example and be especially prayerful with this unique Praying Hands Noteholder craft.

 

 

Good Friday days brings challenging moments in our faith. Jesus is arrested, tried, and crucified. This Jesus Saves Cross is a poignant and beautiful reminder of the crucifixion.

 

 

 

 

And now, the highlight and reason for our faith- HE LIVES! Christ is resurrected. There isn’t a better way to teach our children about this message of hope and love than to engage them in an activity that they can bring home to share. Try one of the following and shout Hallelujah! Happy Easter!
