White as Snow

Completed plaque

Today's Craft:

Here's a plaque craft that shows how Jesus forgives our sins, changes us, and makes us clean and pure like snow.

Materials Needed:

A4 sheets of white paper.
Printed out copies of the craft patterns below.
For each child:
A4 sheet of corrugated cardboard.
A sheet of A4 white, light blue and red construction paper.
Scissors.
Bostik clear glue and/or Glue stick.
Coloured felt-tipped pens or crayons.

Making the Plaque:

  1. Prepare copies of the Plaque Text on sheets of A4 light blue construction paper.
  2. Lightly glue this onto an A4 corrugated cardboard back piece and add a 20mm wide frame made from cutting out the center of an A4 sheet of red construction paper.
  3. Cut a circle of white paper about 150mm diameter (see the Snowflake Making Steps).
  4. Fold in this in half (Fold 1), and then fold this into three even sections (Folds 2 and 3).
  5. The children can then cut out their own snowflake designs or follow the design shown.
  6. They then need to open their snowflake and lightly glue it underneath the text.
  7. They can then colour the text and add any extra details or decorations they desire.
  8. Tie a length of thread to two holes on the top edges or cut a triangle of corrugated cardboard, bend one edge and glue this to the back to make a stay.

 

Introduction

The Bible says that we all have sinned and come short of God's glory (Romans 3:23).  This means that we can never measure up to God's standard and the penalty for our sin is eternal separation from God (Romans 6:23).

However, this verse also assures us that there is forgiveness for our sins and that God promises to give us eternal life.  We can have this if we accept Jesus as our Saviour and ask for forgiveness for all the sins and bad things we have ever done.

It does not matter how bad we have been because Isaiah 1:18 says, "Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow."  This means that Jesus will live in our heart and change us into one of God's children and make us into a new creation.  He will change our desires so that we will want to love and serve God with all our hearts.

Keep your plaque on a shelf or cupboard and hang it onto you bedroom wall to remind you each day that God has forgiven your sins, and now you are one of His beloved children!

God bless.
