Bible Craft Item Recommendation
Before starting any crafting project, you want to make sure you have all the items on hand. By far, the EASIEST thing to do is purchase a crafting kit that includes various items of all times. Here are the three best crafting kits that we’ve found.
Love is Kind
This Bible-focused craft pulls its message from 1 Corinthians 13:4 – 8. For this task, you will need different colors of cartridge paper/construction paper. This will be used to create your hearts. You will also need a solid rectangular piece of paper, harder is better, and you will also need a scissor and glue.
Cut out 15 hearts of different colors plus two rectangular strips of paper. You will glue the hearts to the rectangular piece, overlapping each heart just a little bit, so the color below will peek through. Continue following the step-by-step instructions in the included video to complete this craft. Add printed or written verses to each heart. Then it’s time to have fun using the craft.
