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!

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!
