Murals give the Sunday School students a chance to turn a Bible story into a piece of art. This craft project requires a large sheet of paper. The kids draw a large scene to depict a story, such as Noah with the ark and all of the animals or Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. The murals double as wall art for the Sunday School classroom.
Puppets allow the kids to retell Bible stories to reinforce the ideas. Paper bags are an inexpensive way to make puppets. Another option is to cut the characters from stiff paper with a craft stick or paint stirring stick attached to the back. The kids decorate the puppets to resemble the characters in the story. They can put on a puppet show using a table as the stage.
