Good activities and crafts about the fruit of the Spirit for older children include creating construction paper fruit and constructing a craft stick banner. One option for preschool aged children is making fruit loop necklaces.
To create construction paper fruit, cut out different fruit shapes and have the children write the names of each spiritual fruit on the paper fruit. Then have the children put the fruit in order of the spiritual fruit listed in the verse.
Another option for older children is to make a banner using jumbo craft sticks. Tape the edges of the craft sticks together horizontally. Then have the children write the names of each spiritual fruit on the craft sticks and decorate each with a different fruit.
To create fruit of the Spirit necklaces, give young children yarn with a paper medallion in the middle. List a different spiritual fruit on each medallion, and then have the children string fruit loops on the yarn.
