Christmas School Crafts

In most cases and ideally, Christmas school crafts should be centered on lessons and activities about the interesting birth of Jesus. This helps make the crafts not only fun for the kids but also useful in teaching the kids that central theme of the bible. Most children cannot really comprehend about the various components of the story or the setting in which these events happened.

Most cannot tell what are mangers, who are shepherds, how one can follow a star, why a baby should be born outside and such intricate facts of the bible. Given that such a lifestyle is foreign to most kids, understanding it effectively becomes a problem no matter how many times you tell it. It would be good to illustrate the glorious story of Christ's birth, which is celebrated on Christmas, by adopting some simple Christmas crafts.

School settings, such as in Sunday schools, are very ideal to facilitate activities that incorporate Bible crafts as part of the Christmas fun. This is especially true if the school plans for some craft projects the children can visually use to recreate the biblical details of Jesus and His majestic birth. Again, the Christmas school crafts do not necessarily have to be about Jesus and his birth.

The children will equally learn and enjoy crafts that are adopted from the story of Moses on the mountain, Moses and the Ten Commandments, Moses and the burning bush etc. The teachers can also decide on such thematic crafts as Jonah and the big fish, Eve and the serpent on the Garden of Aden, Job and the temptations and any other great account of the bible.

The accounts themselves can involve paper cutouts, drawing of the illustrations, telling the story using drawings, designing costumes for the stories' characters, pretending and acting like the stories' characters etc. The idea is to let the children understand the story, the lesson behind it and then to express that understanding using a simple Christmas craft.

To make the Christmas school crafts successful, you need to plan them beforehand and to shop for adequate supplies. Every kid should be engaged in a group or individual project and the teacher or teachers should supervise the children closely to ensure that they are safe with the materials and tools and that they understand what they need to do. Demonstrating the craft for the kids will make it easier for the kids to understand.
