1 John 4:13 Candle Bag Craft

June 2014 013We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given of us his Spirit. (1 John 4:13)

Children need to know that when they ask Jesus into their hearts, that He lives inside of them. This craft is a great visual for that.

For this craft you need:

  • print out one verse per child 1 John 4 13
  • one paper bag for each child (cut off about the top quarter)
  • hole punch (I did this ahead of time)
  • markers
  • glue
  • tablecloth or paper to cover the table
  • battery operated candle (I got mine at the Dollar Tree)

June 2014 014Simply have the children decorate the bag and glue the verse to the bag. They can then put their candle inside. Turn off the lights and let everyone see how Jesus shines inside. It’s pretty neat.
