“For I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me.” – Isaiah 46:9 This is what the Bible teaches. My there is only one God craft was created to instill this one concept. God is one. He is higher, wiser, more powerful, more loving, holier, more creative and grander than we can even come close to conceptualize. How do you portray all that to children? It takes a lot of teaching and living out this truth daily for them to begin to catches glimpses of this truth. This craft is one way to pair an accessible and familiar image with this truth.
This craft that teaches Christian truths comes with a free printable so that it is accessible to everyone. It was inspired when our AWANA teachers were looking to fulfill a craft for the Unit 2 review class that was teaching, “God is the One True God.” It was Super Bowl season, and since my team, the Seahawks, were in the big game, I think I was inspired by sports paraphernalia. We all know those big foam fingers that tout the idea that a sport team is #1. If we are willing to cheer on and brag that way about our sports teams, of course we should cheer that loud for the one true God who made everything and is all powerful.
This craft was a great craft for AWANA, but it could be easily used at home, in a Christian school or in a Sunday School class. I made the free printable, so there is little prep involved for the leaders or parents.

How to Make There is Only One God Craft
Print out the printable on a sheet of card stock. Stack the printable sheet with a blank sheet. Cut around the “God is #1” finger, leaving a slight boarder. Have kids color the finger. They can add stickers if desired. Staple around the edges, leaving an opening at the bottom. Kids can put these paper hands on their own hands to wear around.
I hope you enjoy this craft about the greatness of God.
