Pony Bead Fish

Pony Bead Fish

With my hubby pulled in a few other directions, I was in charge of Children’s Church last weekend. Have I ever mentioned that we do Children’s Church every Sunday morning? I know I have on Instagram, but I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned it here. We have it split up nicely– my husband does the lesson, and I orchestrate the craft. But last weekend, I did both. It was a nice change of pace to be able to coordinate the lesson, craft, and snack around a central theme. We did the lesson of the loaves and the fishes (John 6:1-6:13), and I created these Pony Bead Fish for go along with the lesson. Thanks to CraftProjectIdeas.com for the supplies for today’s kid’s craft!

Place the 24 pony beads on a fuzzy stick.

Fold the stick in half to make a fish shape and twist the ends together right above the beads.

Bend the ends to make a fish tail, twisting the ends to secure.

After creating this craft and chatting with some friends about Bible crafts, One Artsy Mama shared how she had made something similar in a keychain version! Great minds think alike, I guess!

This craft will go great with several Bible stories. Pair it with a lesson and a coloring page, and you’re all set!

If you learn better by watching someone complete a craft, check out my first craft video. Instead of a photo tutorial, it’s a video tutorial for these Pony Bead Fish!
