If you’re looking for some Christmas themed activities for Sunday School, Bible School or any other religious group, there are many different fun crafts you can try! Here are 5 of our favorite items that can be used all year round and personalized for any holiday.
Our paper mache cross boxes make great Christmas gifts and can be used as a keepsake. Paint them with red, green, and gold acrylic paint with different designs. You can mix and match the colors for the lids and box. Add sequins like snowflakes or stars. For the multicolored box, we painted the lid black, then used glitter glue to make horizontal lines across the lid. Run a toothpick up and down the lid, spreading the glitter glue into a fun pattern. Then paint the sides with gold. You can also decoupage with decorative holiday paper. Here is a tutorial on how to decoupage these crosses: Paper Mache Christian Cross Trinket Box.
Baby Jesus – Adore Him Craft
This is one of our all time favorite Christian crafts for the holidays, made by our very own Crafty Kate! Using our wooden star hanger you can make this baby Jesus in the manger decoration. Paint the hanger white – it may need a few coats. Then draw baby Jesus with a pencil, and paint his face and blanket. For the manger, you can paint it brown, use jute, or glue construction paper and pieces of a cardboard box for a 3D look. We also painted the outside of the star yellow. Write “Adore Him” at the top with paint or marker. You can relate this to the song “O Come Let Us Adore Him” and discuss the importance of faith and Jesus to the Christmas holiday.

It is a very cute craft – her wings are leaf beads, and her body is a heart. It can be used year round as a guardian angel!

Our angel bead necklaces are also a perfect activity for the holiday season. Assemble together a mix of crystal beads and shining metals to create 6 angel pendants, 2 each of 3 different designs. We include pleather cording to create a necklace! All supplies and instructions included. Jewelry tools are recommended but not necessary for assembly.
