Happy Monday Everyone!!
Even though this is being put together Sunday night with my mint julep face mask on (which is ahhmazing btw!) as I’m catching up on some 19 Kids and Counting episodes!
My face mask has hardened and I don’t dare to even smile! lol
I thought I would share with you all the craft me and the kiddos did today in Sunday School!
I love doing crafts and having so much fun with the kids, yes we’re probably the loudest class (Sorry church members!) but I think that’s a good sign of how much of a good time we’re having while learning the Word of God!
So today’s lesson was about oranges!!
Jk! Well kinda! lol
We learned about the Fruit of the Spirit found in Galatians 5:22-23.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
This lesson was awesome because it covers so many great character building traits all in one lesson!
We learned about how God creates these qualities in us through his Spirit.
Each kid had a fruit assigned to them with a quality and they had to explain in their own words how they would exercise that specific quality!
(Everyone wanted to be the watermelon for some strange reason lol)
I always try to accompany a lesson with a relating craft because I remember how much fun I had doing craft time in my Sunday School!
So as I was looking for cute ideas on Pinterest I stumbled across the most awesome website; Bible Story Printables! They had all the resources and images ready to print and for free!
I mean how cute are these?!
It then hit me to make a ”Fruit Bowl of the Spirit Craft” for the kiddos!
(Thanks Zak for the clever name lol)
All you need is:
~Printer and Ink
~Hot Glue Gun
~Markers and Crayons
~Candy Grapes (Optional)
Print these adorable fruit shapes here.

Next, you want to have a couple of little helpers color and cut the fruits! (So adorable seeing them try their hardest to color within the lines!)
It might be a good idea to help the younger kids with the hot glue! (Trust me I, to this day still end up burning myself! )
Glue all your little fruits on the edge of the bowl and add some candy sour grapes to make it look like a legit fruit bowl!
I mean how cute and easy right?!!
I love this craft because its adorable and very affordable! Believe me it can get pretty expensive really fast making crafts for 20 kids!
I have a funny and crazy story to tell, some may say it is somewhat of a testimony.
Now, I love doing all these fun projects for the kids and just going to Michael’s and getting excited for all the fun crafting possibilities! But recently every time I purchase things for my Sunday School class , my bank automatically deposits the EXACT amount that I spent for the craft/lesson!!!! The same EXACT amount down to the pennies and all!
We have to agree that is no coincidence!
No doubt about it that we serve a Great and Mighty God!
I hope you all have happiness and exciting adventures this week!
Til Next Time!!
