I am in the middle of presenting a AWANA Cubbies series to help provide crafts and resources for those involved in the Cubbies program offered worldwide. My church asked me to do our crafts, and I decided to pass it along to you. I have not been hired by AWANA. They have great ideas with their own resources, so I encourage you to visit them as well. These are separate crafts meant to be just another resource for you. My other Cubbies crafts can be found if you hover over my character development tab. Today I’m offering a rainbow paper plate craft to go with AWANA Cubbies Bear Huge #8. You can do this craft with your kids whether you have kids in AWANA or not. I have provided a printable to make it easy for you to be able to replicate this idea. I’m trying to stay a step ahead of our AWANA schedule. Yours may differ. Let me know if you are wanting to use this resource but I am not providing enough time for your own schedule. I will try and get more up quickly if that is the case. Today’s craft focuses on the scripture, “All your words are true.” – Psalm 199:160. Kids will be looking at the story of Noah to help learn more about God’s promises.
Paper plates (1/2 per child)
Cotton Balls (6 per child…you can use less if you have the kids stretch out the cotton ball.
Pens or Crayons
Glue (I like using a stick for paper and white glue for cotton balls)
The verse printable we prepped before hand. We cut out all the semi-circles so all kids had to do was glue it down to the paper plate.
We also prepared for the Cubbies group by cutting the paper plates in half.
Kids will be able to color the stripes on the rainbow. You can provide an example. You can also use a compass to draw the lines if you wish. I just left them plain, and the kids will color in their own stripes.
This is what the rainbow looks like when complete.
The verse should fit nicely in smallest circle of your paper plate. Kids can glue it down. You might want to glue it down before they start coloring too so they understand better where to color.
The final step is to glue on the cotton balls.
