Crafting Faith; 101 Crafts to Help Kids Grow in Their Faith
by Laurine Easton
Reinforce faith with easy craft ideas for children!
Kids are naturally creative, so most easy craft ideas for children are almost always a hit. But it can be downright difficult for catechists, teachers, and parents to help kids make a concrete connection between a fun craft and their faith. Crafting Faith solves that problem by offering 101 easy craft ideas for children that are explicitly connected to Scripture, liturgical events, and what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
In addition to clear and concise directions, a listing of the time required to complete the project, and the craft’s general theme (e.g., Resurrection, Jesus, etc.), each easy craft idea for children in the book includes a Faith Connection—specific Bible verses or a faith-sharing opportunity that encourages kids to think spiritually while they cut, color, and glue. Paper boats, fish mobiles, and prayer butterflies may one day be forgotten and even discarded, but the faith lessons learned while implementing these easy craft ideas for children are bound to stick with them throughout their lifetime.
