Christian crafts offer many different opportunities for demonstrating and celebrating faith.
Halloween can be a difficult time for Christian parents. Sometimes Christian children have a hard time understanding how they are different from their secular friends.
Christian crafts offer many different opportunities for demonstrating and celebrating faith. Crafters can decorate Christian crosses for home décor or as an activity to do with church groups. Christian crafts for kids are a great way to engage children with Christianity and serve as an excellent teaching aid. Homemade crafts featuring Biblical characters or angels also make wonderful Christian gifts at Christmas, Easter and other occasions.
Witnessing With Candy Packs
Halloween provides a great opportunity to reach out to the children in your neighborhood with a Christian message. Using construction paper and tape, help the kids make palm-sized candy envelopes. Write bible verses or the words of Jesus somewhere and “Happy Halloween, Christ Loves You!” on the other side. Fill the envelopes with candy corn or any other small packaged candy and then tape them shut.

Pre-cut green omits of construction paper. Kids can paint their bags with orange paint at the beginning of class. To finish off the craft, they glue green leaves to the top of the bag.
