Halloween Outreach Bible Printables

fallbibleprintablesHalloween presents a HUGE outreach opportunity for your Church.  In our town we have a huge city wide Harvest Festival providing children a safe alternative to Trick or Treating.  It is a night filled with treats, games, activities, and fellowship. The entire church parking lot is LIT UP in the middle of town and it draws people away from the darkness and into the light. This is a fantastic time to reach those in your community who might not enter the church building on a Sunday morning.  These resources are created with these opportunities in mind:

Pumpkin Prayer Printables

Over the years, the Pumpkin Prayer has been one of our most popular Fall printables.  This year I was so excited to update this resource to include all new graphics in color and black and white.

pumpkinprayerprintableFor those of you now familiar with the Pumpkin Prayer, it is a simple visual prayer you can use with your children during October.  Many families will be carving pumpkins around Halloween and this is a special way you can connect each step of the pumpkin carving to an important heartfelt prayer for your children.   If you are involved in your children’s ministry this makes a great take home booklet to remind children to let their lights shine before men.  This free set is available in color or black and white and you can print it here on our sister site ChristianPreschoolPrintables.com

Bible Verse Printables

VVGenesis11

We have a great selection of Bible Verse Printables

on Christian Preschool Printables!

In fact, I recently revamped that area of our website, making it easier for you to find just the right verse for your children.

All of our verses are chronologically ordered and presented so you can see the exact scripture card.

BibleVerseCardsPin

We have over 20 sets of printables for these verses.  Each set includes:

Bible Verse Visuals (Large verse for classroom)
Bible Verse Cards (Small verse for children)
Bible Verse Copywork/Tracing Pages (We recommend using these sleeves)
Bible Verse Games (Usually a file folder game)
Bible Verse Vocabulary (A word from the verse defined)
Bible Craft or Coloring Page (Something simple for Preschoolers)
Character of God in Focus (A specific attribute of God that corresponds with the verse)

These sets are perfect for homeschool or children’s ministry.

They make a fantastic add on to your current curriculum, and it’s never to early to start memorizing God’s word.

TIP:  Build on the Verses by presenting them during circle time.  Encourage children to say them with you as you point to the words!  My two and threes picked up the verses very quickly, and soon they would only need to see the image to recite the verse.  I mounted the large visual verses to construction paper and laminated for durability.  You might even hang them in your classroom when not in use, just having them up will remind the children.

Christmas Card Crafts for Kids

20131117_200929

This is a simple and easy Chrsitmas Card project for kids.

In fact, this come from my own childhood.

My best friends Grandmother would save her Christmas Cards from the previous year,

and we’d decorate them with glitter and repourpose them as ornaments and gift tags.

I thought that would be the perfect project to do with my own kiddos this year.

But, of course that all takes planning, and saving the cards from last year.

I didn’t do that.

ChristmasCards2

Instead, I decided to print up a set of pictures that would be perfect for adding glitter to.

Then we can make our own cards and ornaments together.

And I just know that you’re going to love this project with your own kiddos,

so we’re offering our Subscribers these free Christmas Card download.

Join Free or Login then Download Here

How To:

20131117_195625

Materials: 

Printed Card on Cardstock Paper

Fine Glitter (Here is inexpensive kind)

Glue

Q-Tip

Step 1: Cut the ends off your Q-Tip at a slant.  

20131117_195924

Step :2  Use the Q-Tip to apply glue to highlight areas on the card.

You don’t want to cover the entire picture, we’re just highlighting areas that we want to sparkle.

Less is more :)

20131117_200208

TIP:

Look for places where snow might accumulate.

Use the tip of your Q-tip to make icicles coming off the roof

20131117_200902

All Done:

It’s hard to capture the glitter in a photo, but these are just stunning when they are done!

Stained Glass Nativity Craft

StaineGlassNativity

Christmas always comes faster then I’m prepared for.

I remember it was even faster when I had lesson plans to prepare for.

This is a quick and easy craft that will give you beautiful results.

(You might remember that we’ve used this technique on our Stained Glass Easter Craft)

NativityStainedGlass

Download: Nativity

So here’s the deal.

You can either print that page on vellum paper and color it in with markers

-or- a more budget friendly and FUN way is to print it on regular paper and then do the following:

20131117_074422

Color your paper with marker.  Encourage children to leave areas of white or to use their yellow pen to highlight the tops of each section.

20131117_074455

When your page is colored, flip it over and apply oil to the back.  I used a canola oil and a paper towel to rub it in.  You’ll instantly see the oil soaking in.  Oil the entire page.

20131117_074705

Let dry, then Hang up in a sunny window.  You can see in my image the oiled area lets the light through.  You can even get creative with what areas you oil and don’t oil for a different effect (see that little oil spot near the bottom of the page)

I think a window full of these would be beautiful in a classroom window!

DIY Stained Glass Coloring Pages

So last week, while browsing around Pinterest,
I found this cheepo way to make DIY stained glass coloring pages.

And the timing couldn’t have been better.
(As my children had just tore out the very last page in their stained glass coloring book)

So I thought I’d give it a try to see if we got a comparable result:

Not bad right?

The sun kept popping in and out from behind the clouds, so this shot is a tad more “cloudy”
but you can see the DIY on the left and the purchased on the right.
So the DIV version is not EXACTLY the same as a prepaid sheet,
but it is way cheaper then buying a set of pages or even a stack of vellum to print on.

Plus you can really turn ANY coloring page into a stained glass project.
And what kiddo does’t love to see their own creations on display?

Just in case you wanted to try out this method for yourself,
I whipped up some beautiful Easter pages that would look great as stained glass.

Head on over to our main site for the printable pages and the full tutorial!

Blessings,

Valerie

Moses Bible Printables

This week we’re studying the life of Moses.

Using The Mystery of History as our guide, and reading directly from our family bible, we have spent our afternoons immersed in the life of this interesting, and very human man named Moses.

My children (and I) have been enraptured by the way God revealed himself to Moses, and the amazing miracles that were witnessed by so many. It is the ultimate adventure story.

I whipped up a few notebooking pages to go alongside our studies, and I’ve added them to our History Visuals pages.

Click Here for our Life of Moses History Printables

These are listed as the newest additions to our History Printables.

I’ve also made a few NEW file folder games that would go perfectly alongiside a Moses unit study.

Bible Printables: Abraham


abraham bible printables

This post has been a long time coming.

You might already know that we’re using
The Mystery of History this year,
(you might be annoyed of all my posts about the program),
but the program is amazing and has quickly become the CORE
of our homeschool days.

It’s that good.

I quickly found myself scheduling art projects, crafts, and even reading and writing assignments to surround the weekly themes that are outlined in the curriculum.

(Here’s more on that)

With the MOH program you spend one lesson on Abraham,
but we soon found that we were enthralled by his story and decided
to turn it into a month long lesson.
(Wow. The joy of homeschooling!!)

First we learned about the lineage of Christ, as mentioned in Matthew. There is also a lineage in Luke, but this one started at Abraham, and since we learned about the promise that many would be blessed through Abraham we chose the one in Matthew.

There is also a book with a CD called The Ballad of Matthew’s Begats.We listen to it all the time and just learning it helps us keep track of Who’s who! This also goes from Abraham to Jesus.

We also learned that God’s promise was to be fullfilled through his son Isaac and not his son Ishmael. So I made this visual to help explain the lineage and for my children to copy the specific promise from the bible.

We also learned about Lot, and Sodom and Gomorrah. So I made this visual to show the children what “raining sulfur” might look like.

abraham bible crafts

After reading about Abraham, we watched this great video that takes children from the first calling of Abram, to the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. I have quite a few of the videos in this series, they have been wonderful teaching tools over the years. If you have Netflix you can order them too.

To wrap up our study I made this Bible File Folder Game called, “God’s friend Abraham.”
Included are four sheets of questions you can use to help children review facts about Abraham and the people around him. This is a great way to quiz children on what they remember from the lessons as well.

We had a fantastic time learning about Abraham, and I ended up creating a TON more printables, crafts, and worksheets for our sister sites.

You can find the Preschool resources here on ChristianPreschoolPrintables.com

And the K-5 resources here on BibleStoryPrintables.com

I hope you find these helpful for your own bible studies!
