Fishers of Men Craft for Kids

The Fishers of Men Craft for Kids is a great way to teach kids about the Bible story of Jesus’ disciples fishing. 

This craft is perfect for preschoolers and elementary school students who are learning about the Bible or being introduced to Jesus’ disciples. It’s also fun for adults who want to color with their children!


  • Paper plate (or other round objects)
  • Crayons or markers (optional)

Fishing Pole Kids Craft


  • wooden dowel rods, 4-6 inches long
  • sharpened pencils, 2 per child (you may have to sharpen them)
  • large paper clips or binder clips for each child

Assembly Instructions.

Insert the pencil into the end of one of your dowels and secure it with a paper clip or binder clip. You can use a toothpick as well if you don’t have any rods available! This will be the fishing rod handle for your kids’ rotating reels.

Next, attach another dowel with an additional pencil inserted into it onto one end of your first rod by sliding it over until they both fit snugly together.

this will be their fishing line spool on which they’ll thread their paper clips before attaching them to their pole handles later on!

Jesus Walks On Water – Printable Kids Craft

We all know Jesus is the best, but did you know he can also walk on water? This craft will help your kids learn about one of Jesus’ miracles and how it shows us that God is with us always.

To make this printable craft.

Print out the Jesus Walks On Water activity page by clicking here or on the image below. It may take a few moments to download depending on your internet speed and browser settings.

Give each child a copy of the activity sheet (be sure to save some for yourself!). You can also laminate it if you want it to last longer or use heavy-duty paper so they don’t rip it up too much!

Have your kids color in their favorite part of the picture, whether that’s walking on water, calming storms, or healing people with his touch -there’s no right answer! They can even write “I am…” next to whatever they colored in because this is their story!

Easter Sunday School Craft – I’m a Christian!

Paper Plate Fish Craft.

Cut out a fish shape from the paper plate using scissors.

  • Color the fish with colored pencils or markers, and cut out fins from another piece of paper that are about the same size as your child’s hand (they will be used for decorating).
  • Fold one side of each fin under itself so that it forms a triangle shape; glue down both sides of each fin to form an “X” on top of what remains of your paper plate fish (you should have two extra pieces left over after this step).

Glue one eye onto each side of the head just above where you’ve folded in your fin pieces to create eyelids—this will make it easier for kids to see what they’re doing! 

Be sure not to glue down too much so that everything stays where it needs to be during assembly later on…just enough so things don’t fall apart while working together )

Sock Fish Kids Craft Tutorial

You will need

  • A pair of socks
  • A ruler
  • A needle and thread.

Step 1

Cut the toe and heel off the sock, leaving just a piece of fabric around your big toe.

Step 2

Now you need to cut down the side seam so that it forms a long tube shape (this is probably best for an adult). The length of this tube depends on how long you want your fish body to be—just remember that once it’s stuffed with paper or cotton balls, it will expand in size!

Step 3

Use your ruler (or pencil) and mark out six marks along one side edge, spaced evenly apart by about ¾ inch (2 cm). Each mark should be closer than those before it so that they create a gradual slope from top to bottom when viewed from above. These marks are where we will sew our eyes onto our fish later!

Step 4

Flip over your sock and make two vertical cuts at each end about ¼ inch (0.5 cm) away from either edge. This will leave room for us to fold over our cardboard later without interfering with any existing stitches or seams on either side of them!

You can make the netting out of just about anything. Some options are yarn, felt, paper, fabric, and even plastic or metal. 

The netting should be made in a round shape that is big enough to fit over your child’s head. Use a thick thread or thicker material if you want it to look stronger like fishing nets do!

Jesus Feeds 5,000 with Five Loaves and Two Fishes Children’s Sermon 

Jesus fed the crowd with bread and fish. The disciples were amazed that Jesus had such power. 

They were afraid to ask him for bread because they did not understand how he could make it appear out of nothing. 

They were confused about how he could do something like this without fear of being discovered. They were angry at the people who had arrived too late to get any food and jealous of those who had been fortunate enough to eat some bread before the meal was over.
