Jr. Church Christmas Crafts

Chris and I have had the priveledge to teach jr. Church for the month of December. I was pretty excited about all the fun Christmas crafts that would help teach the children a lesson they could apply to their hearts =)

The First Week was making a wreath with the childrens cut out hand prints.

The next week we talked about how to make your sins white as snow and decorated snowflake cookies and cut out snowflakes!
We talked about how no 2 snowflakes are the same just like God makes all people differently. Then we had a contest on different categories of snowflakes like most beautiful, most creative etc...This snowflake from one of the sweet bus riders won "most beautiful snowflake"

The third week we talked about how the candy cane has many different symbols for Christ.  We made Christmas Cards with the poem of the candy cane inside 

                                                                Candy Cane Poem
                                                Look at the Candy Cane

What do you see?

Stripes that are red
Like the blood shed for me
White is for my Savior
Who’s sinless and pure!
“J” is for Jesus My Lord, that’s for sure!
Turn it around
And a staff you will see
Jesus my shepherd
Was born for Me!

Similar to the candy cane craft from week 3 today we used Candy to remind us of Christ =)

 So thankful for the birth of our savior and the honor to share the old old story with little ones!

Merry Christmas!!!
