J is for Jesus Candy Cane Printables

jisforjesus

J is for Jesus has been one of the most popular Christmas resources on our sister site ChristianPreschoolPrintables.com.

Today, I’m happy to share an updated version of this helpful resource!  I’ve redesigned the minibook into a story strip format making it super simple to send home with your students this year.  Many teachers attach a miniature candy cane to the booklets as an extra treat for children.  (Purchase mini candy canes in BULK here)

Bible Verse Bookmarks for Kids

BookmarkVarietyPin

I’m on a bookmark kick lately…..have you noticed?

Today I made a set of 10 different Bible Verse Bookmarks for Kids.

BookmarkBibleVerse

Print Bible Verse Bookmarks Here

There are ten key scriptures for children to memorize with themes both boys and girls will love.

Bookmarks are a great way to encourage children to read, and they make simple take home items for children’s church or VBS programs.

I recommend printing them on cardstock and laminating for durability.

You could even punch a hole and add some ribbon if you’re feeling crafty, but these truly are ready to go!

You could even keep a pile of these on hand for rewarding students for good work!

Easter Bible Verse Printables

EasterVerseCardsPin

One of our most popular Easter resources is our Easter Egg Bible Verse Cards for Kids.

There are 10 different cards each with their own memory picture and key scripture.  The cards are stored in a pocket that includes a checklist for children.

Recently, I received an email from one of our readers.  She had been sending these scripture eggs in care packages overseas as part of an outreach program.  She was printing the eggs and replacing the verses with scripture in each countries native language by gluing little squares over the top.  It was proving time consuming and she was in need of a blank version.

So I got to work and instead of a blank version, I made an editable version.  Well, okay I made both.

Editable Easter Egg Verse Cards

I just know that there are others of you out there who are looking for small, light weight encouragement items to send to your sponsored children, or to your missionaries and church plants and now you can customize a set in your language of choice.

Additionally, if you make a set do send the files back to share with others!

God Keeps His Promises Game

GodFaithfulChildren learning about Noah’s Ark can learn an important truth that God always keeps his promises.

We have a variety of Noah’s Ark printables, crafts and resources you can add to your Sunday School Lesson, but today I wanted to add in a center time activity.

This is a game that can be placed in your learning centers or morning activity table for children just arriving or played in your own home with sibilings.

Each child receives a gameboard that reads “God keeps his promises” and has a space for each color of the rainbow.

Children take turns drawing colors from the middle hoping to be the first one to fill up their rainbow board.

If a child draws a color they already have, it’s simply discarded and the next child takes a turn.

There is even a place for children to place their favorite color.

St. Patrick’s Day Bible Lesson Verse

We’ve had such a great response to our Bible Verse Printable Theme Packs, that I decided we should add a set for St. Patrick’s Day!

StPatricksDayVersePin

We currently have a ton of Trinity resources for St. Patrick’s Day, so I thought I’d switch things up a bit and make this set with the Beatitudes.

    Coins1CoinPocket Coins2

So there are eight different bible verses, each from Matthew 5, and each representing a character trait that God holds valuable and blessed.   I printed them on shamrock coins, representing a focus on treasure in heaven and not earthly treasures.

There is a printable pocket with a verse checklist on the back, these would be great to learn during the month of March!

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

Veteran’s Day Printables

Do you homeschool through the holidays?
We usually continue class as usual for most of the Monday holidays,
but we do try to incorporate so holiday themed activities for that day.

I just can’t DO a four day week.
I’ve tried in the past, and a four day week quickly turns into a three day week,
and then a two day week…and then eventually I give up and say,
Hey let’s just start FRESH on Monday.

A whole week gone, and I’m scrambling to figure out
where we’re going to make it up later!

So, I’ve since learned to do something else for these one day,
beginning of the week holidays.
Here is my magic formula:

-Drop everything except the three R’s.
-Include a special craft, activitiy, or field trip.

There. That’s it.
Impressive huh!

So tomorrow we’ll be reading about Veteran’s Day,
and making some special Thank You Cards.

Of course I made plenty to share.
And of course like a good little procrastinating Homeschooler,
I’ve posted it the night before Veteran’s day.

I realize that’s not the best plan.
I almost just waited until next year to share it,
but then I realized that there is at LEAST one of you out there
who is scrambling for something to do on Veteran’s Day tomorrow.
Obviously, I speak from experience.

Ahem.

So it’s not a fancy set, but I think it will get the job done!
There is a set of printable Thank You badges for children to color,
and use as the cover of a Veteran’s Day card.

I also included some easy to cut decorations,
which would be great for little ones just learning scissor work.
For children who are showing readiness, I also added in some ABC practice
and a small copywork page.

Pretty simple stuff.
You can print the Veteran’s Day Printables here.

Pssssst……
Be Sure to Stay Tuned!!

I have lots more Holiday Printables coming out soon,
They will be available on Christian Preshool Printables
so be sure you are subscribed if you’re interested in more simple sets like this!
