Christian Crafts for Kids

christian crafts for kids

Christian crafts for kids are a hands-on way to teach lessons about life. Since crafts are something that all cultures have in common, they become a great way to teach about different countries.

Oftentimes, children and adults who are living in poverty sell crafts as a way to provide for their families. This page features crafts from various cultures. Kids will learn how to create their own games, make candles, recycle trash into toys, design puzzles, and even how to make their own soap! Through these Christian crafts for kids, children will gain a deeper understanding of living in poverty.

While making these crafts, take time to discuss how people live in developing countries. Have your children locate the difference countries on a map and encourage them to research the area—neighboring countries, bodies of water, languages spoken, and religions. It may be just what your child needs to develop a compassionate heart for those who are less fortunate.
