Hi, everyone! It’s been a few weeks since we’ve had a Craft Through the Bible post. My family actually went on a little adventure last week. I’m excited to fill you in on that later, but for now I’m glad to have another Bible related kid’s craft to share with you today! VBS and summer kids’ programs are coming up, and this would be a good craft to put on the list.
The story of Moses and the burning bush is in Exodus 3. I’ve always found it to be a fascinating story. Now that I have boys, they also like to hear the story (FIRE!!!), and this craft is a good project to accompany the Bible story. Let’s get started!
- Green card stock
- Brown card stock
- Hole punch
- Orange tissue paper
- Glue stick
Begin by cutting bush shapes out of the green card stock and brown card stock. The brown shape should resemble the green shape but be smaller.
Glue the brown shape on top of the green shape.
Use the hole punch to make holes all in the bush. Be sure to cut through both layers of the card stock.
Cut the tissue paper into strips.
Thread a strip of paper through each hole. Use glue or tape to attach the tissue paper to the back of the bush shape. Scrunch up the tissue paper on the top of the bush shape.
Adjust the craft to the age of the child. For instance, older kids can complete all of the steps of this craft by themselves. Younger or preschool age children may need help cutting out shapes, etc.
