Closed cross box

Cross/Box Children's Sermon or Craft - inside of the Box is John 3:16NIV. ( For King James Version click here.)      Español    Português     The Box opens to a cross shape. Print and cut out. Fold everything up (verse side up). Fold into box shape and tape sides lightly. Put a bow on top. Use with a devotional or sermon about the "Gift of God" (Romans 6:23).  I would suggest having the children make these after presenting a lesson from the Cross Card below

ÖpenOpen the box by cutting the tape carefully. Now you have a cross with John 3:16 on it.

 

 

Closed cross card

Cross Card Make a Greatest Gift Card that opens to a cross with John 3:16 (NIV) on it. This makes an excellent visual for a children's sermon about God's Gift. Also use in Children's Church, Sunday School, or the classroom.
For a John 3:16 KJV card click here

Make a Creation Cube This is a clever idea but the cubes are small. I would use with older children and use fine point markers to fill in numbers. You might be able to enlarge this on a copier and then attach to cardstock. This is from sundayschoolresources.co.uk
