Using Candy Corn to Teach the Trinity Craft by Teaching with TLC – You know I love a good candy corn craft. This craft, however, has purpose. While there is a lot of the scripture that shows that the trinity is a Biblical concept, it is always hard to explain. There is no one perfect analogy to the trinity. Using visual reminders and analogies brings some clarity. This Sunday School craft idea for the fall can help kids think more about the trinity. With the trinity, it’s time to confess, “Your ways are higher than my ways and Your thoughts are higher than my thoughts.” – Isaiah 55:8-9
Thankful Turkey by Crafted with Love – Here’s a simple Thanksgiving fall craft that celebrates Ephesians 5:20, which reads, “Always give thanks for everything.” Using inexpensive supplies, kids can create their own turkey puppet from a paper bag.
Water Color Leaves with Bible Verses – These beautiful water color leaves have important scriptures on the back. You can have the kids cut out leaf shapes. Then, do a white crayon resist for the veins. Let them paint with watercolors on the back. Once dry, have them write important scripture reminders on the other side of the leaf. These can be hung on display in the classroom. Alternately, the leaves can be taken home so parents can enjoy their beauty and purpose.
Being a Christian is Like Being a Pumpkin by Happy Home Fairy – I adore what Happy Home Fairy. Having a blog friendship with her, I love her heart. This is an adorable printable. You will need to head on over to her site to see how she incorporates it into a Bible craft for the fall using kids’ handprints.

Jesus Took the Fall Craft – I love the thought of the above craft. “Jesus took the fall and thought of me above all.” This is another craft where I just found the picture through a Pinterest link. I couldn’t find the instructions. This person seemed to use leaf stickers and acorn stickers. You might be able to take your Sunday School class out exploring God’s creation. You could collect beautiful fall leaves and glue them around this saying.

How can I print a single page without the advertisement on it?
If you go down close to the bottom. Right above the bars that say FB, Pinterest, etc. there should be a little print icon that can help you print. You can choose which page to print. Hope that helps.
Thanks a million. Thanks for all you do.
