Big Picture Bible Crafts invites children to enter into the story of redemption—experiencing the majesty of God and the beauty of the gospel—in a tactile way. We love the simple supply lists and instructions that make it easy for us to tell our children a Bible story and do a craft during family worship.”
Joey Cochran, Pastor of Middle School Discipleship and Communication, Calvary Memorial Church, Oak Park, Illinois

“As someone who is craft challenged, I love this resource. It takes the biblical stories and makes them come alive in a kaleidoscope of activities designed to engage and stimulate the youngest members of the church community.”
Iain M. Duguid, Professor of Old Testament, Westminster Theological Seminary

Big Picture Bible Crafts provides fun and creative crafts to accompany 101 stories from the Bible! Crafts are an easy way for kids to connect with what is taught during a lesson. One of my favorite features of this book is the different levels provided for each craft to match different age groups. It is also a great time saver—you do not need to comb through the internet to find ideas. This book will be a helpful resource to meet any teacher’s needs.”
