Mansions In Heaven And Streets of Gold Template

Streets of Gold Template

(I did not print this one on card stock. I just used regular printing paper on this one. It will work a lot better if you use card stock. It won't be so flimsy.)

Mansions in Heaven and Streets of Gold Template

Print the mansion house with jewels out and then print the gold street out. Cut both of them out. Be sure to print on cardstock if you want it to hold up better. If you just have regular printing paper that will work fine, but it won't be as sturdy. 

When cutting the house out be sure to tell the child not to cut the gray areas off. Fold where it say's to fold and tape or glue it. I just use tape and it works fine. This will make a standing house. Add your cut out gold street next to your house. 

You could make popsicle sticks and make angels out of them to go along with this.

John 14:1  Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

John 14:2  In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

John 14:3  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Revelation 21:10  And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

Revelation 21:11  Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;

Revelation 21:12  And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:

Revelation 21:13  On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.

Revelation 21:14  And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

Revelation 21:15  And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.

Revelation 21:16  And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.

Revelation 21:17  And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.

Revelation 21:18  And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.

Revelation 21:19  And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;

Revelation 21:20  The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.

Revelation 21:21  And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

Revelation 21:22  And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.

Revelation 21:23  And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

March Wind Sock Craft

Wind Sock With Hair Twigs
Cardboard tube (Toilet paper roll tube)
Plain or colored paper
Markers or crayons
Crepe paper roll
2 Pipe Cleaners
Goggle Eyes
Hole Punch
Cut a piece of paper large enough to cover the cardboard tube.  Decorate with markers or crayons. Or you could have them draw a face and add google eyes. Make sure you hot glue these down. You could use double sided tape or regular tape but I am not sure how long the eyeballs will stay attached when the wind starts blowing. 
Write a Bible verse on the paper.  Cut five or six streamers that are 24 inches (60 cm) long  from the crepe paper.  Glue these inside the toilet paper roll on one end so the streamers all hang out the bottom.  They will overlap inside some.  
Use a hole punch and add a hole on each side of the toilet paper roll tube. Add a pipe stem cleaner for a handle.Add another pipe cleaner through the same holes and twirl them around your finger to get a curly effect for the hair. Hang the wind sock where that you can watch the direction the wind blows.  Bring it inside if there is strong wind or rain.

"Paul Bitten By Viper" Log Fire Cake

"Paul Bitten By Viper" 
Log Fire Cake

 Acts 28:1  And when they were escaped, then they knew that the island was called Melita.
Acts 28:2  And the barbarous people shewed us no little kindness: for they kindled a fire, and received us every one, because of the present rain, and because of the cold.
Acts 28:3  And when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks, and laid them on the fire, there came a viper out of the heat, and fastened on his hand.
Acts 28:4  And when the barbarians saw the venomous beast hang on his hand, they said among themselves, No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he hath escaped the sea, yet vengeance suffereth not to live.
Acts 28:5  And he shook off the beast into the fire, and felt no harm.
Acts 28:6  Howbeit they looked when he should have swollen, or fallen down dead suddenly: but after they had looked a great while, and saw no harm come to him, they changed their minds, and said that he was a god.

1 Chocolate Cake Mix
2 cans of Chocolate Frosting and 1 White Frosting
Printable "Fire With Snake" Template
Fork-to run lines in the frosting to make it look like a log

Bake a regular cake and let it cool. Take some dental floss and cut the cake down the middle.

  Now you should have two pieces of cake!

 Pick up one of the pieces of cake and lay it on top of the other piece of cake.

Okay now your cake should look like this.

Now slap some chocolate frosting all over it. Skip the front and back of the log, because you will be putting some different colored frosting on this part.

Okay, now add some tan colored frosting to the front and to the back. Just mix some white frosting and chocolate frosting together to get this color. Do a tacky job like I did here in the picture. (Just kidding)

Grab your fork and give the chocolate frosting a good back scratch. Just run the fork down the sides and top. 

This is what a good job looks like. haha.  You should have a piece of cake that resembles a wooden log now.

Do the tan part in the front and back with the fork making a circular motion. Your finished log should look like this now.

Just print and laminate the snake fire template and stick down in the top of the cake. 

Snake fire template

Not to shabby, huh! This is the finished cake. Your kids are sure to remember the lesson on Paul being bitten by a viper. This was a very easy cake to make.

You could buy a bee set from the store or the internet or you could make your own. I covered the bulletin board in red paper. Added some yellow bee trim all around. I added black letters that said, "Bee Mine Jesus" on one side and bee hive on the other. I stapled bees all over the board.

The Righteous Shall See The Wicked Fall

Pro 29:16-  When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall. 

When a man has a wicked heart his increase works against him.  There are many that if they had the means to fulfill all their desires it would most certainly lead to destruction.  Some are merely limited by their resources as to the amount of evil they accomplish.  For instance, many of the rich and powerful in this great nation, started out with Christian beginnings and now you can’t even see a hint of Jesus in their lives.  

It is a natural drive to increase our wealth, stature, and well-being while we are here on this earth.  But if we lose sight of the important things we may truly gain the world, but lose our souls.  If we are obedient to Christ and long for his will to be done, then I believe that He will not increase us beyond that which we are able to endure.   Why do I say endure?  Because to whom much is given, must is required.  Wealth and increase can destroy the Christian in many ways.  The power that money gives, can give us a false sense of independence from God.  The ability to have all good things is paralleled by the ability to have all bad things.  There are things that might tempt you now that you just simply don’t have the means.  Perhaps a current situation for someone is simply to keep their heart true to God.  If we work on our hearts and learn to trust Him and desire to do His will, then He is faithful to equip us with what we need to do it.  If we increase, but He does not, there is a problem.  I think many say and even believe that we would do more if we could.  Or even plan to do more in the future.  I believe that if we will start today and do the little that we can now, that before you know it you will look back and say, “Wow, I have done a lot.”  Ten dollars to someone who needs it will go further than no dollars.  One kind word will go further than no words.  One soul saved because you told someone about Jesus will go further than any amount of money.
If I asked, “How much have you done for Jesus in your life?”  Some would answer with all kinds of great things while others might shy away with guilt or remorse.  But that is ok, because God is not near as concerned with where you have been, or where you are.  He is much more interested in where you are going in both this life and eternity.  So, I know we all want to go to Heaven, but where do you want to go in this life?  Ask God what you can do for Him and when he shows you, well, just do it!

Valentine Snacks and Heart Craft For Sunday School

Matthew 22:37  Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

Matthew 22:38  This is the first and great commandment.

Matthew 22:39  And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Matthew 22:40  On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

 Valentine Snacks 
For Kids In Sunday School


Your going to need 2 plastic bathroom cups (150 cups-3FL OZ  88ML). Take your scissors and make 8 cuts in the plastic cup all the way down to the bottom. 

Next spread your plastic cuts out like this picture shows. Now you will have something that looks like a little flower.

Tape a colored popsicle stick to the back of your cut up plastic cup like this. Then tape your popsicle stick down in another plastic cup.

Then just add two colored goggle eyes to the front with tape. Then tape a colored feather in the back. Then add a small cut out paper heart to the front with the words "Love The Lord" "Matt 22:37" on the front. I used a black sharpie for the words "Love The Lord" and then I used a regular ink pen to write "Matt 22:37" down. If you use a sharpie marker for all of it, I don't think it will fit unless you make your hearts bigger. Then I taped a heart at the top. To get a heart like the one you see in the picture just cut a heart out and then cut a smaller heart out of the same heart. Your paper should be folded in half when doing this. Then you will have a hole in the middle that is in the shape of a heart. 

Fill the little cups with cereal and sweetheart candies. I color coordinated mine just for fun. Hand these fun snacks out to the kids in Sunday school class or Children's Church. Teach the kids a lesson on Matthew 22:37. Jesus said that there were two commandments that were very important. We are to love the Lord with all heart and the next one is to love our neighbor as ourselves.  

Have the kids make a heart card for their parents. Have them cut out a large heart. Add some colored google eyes and some crinkly arms and legs. Add small hearts at the end of the arms and legs. Tape a small eyebrows and mouth on. Give it some eyelashes by drawing them on. Tape a note card to the end of one the arms. Write on the note card the scripture "Matthew 22:37  Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind."

Valentine Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes


Valentine Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

  • Cake Mix
  • Sweetheart Candies
  • Sprinkles
  • White or Pink Frosting
  • Ice Cream Cones
  • Tinfoil
  • Muffin Pan

Take your muffin pan and stuff tinfoil in each one. Set your ice cream cones down inside of the foil. This is so they don't fall over. You don't have to use that if you don't want. They will stand up fine without it. Pour your cake batter almost up to the top of the cone. Bake your cupcakes according to the box directions.

Let your cupcakes cool. Stick them in the freezer for about 5 minutes if you want to speed it up. Now you are going to ice them. Use pink or white frosting. Smear on top and add some fun sprinkles to the top. Stick one Sweetheart candy in the middle of the frosting. Make the candy to where it's standing up. To transport these just sit them back down in the tinfoil muffin pan. This will keep them from falling over.

 Stick your cupcake cones down in tinfoil in a muffin pan.

Add your cake batter now.

When your cupcakes are done take them out of the oven and let them cool down. Add your white or pink frosting.

 Okay now the frosting is on.

 Now add some colorful pink and red sprinkles.

 Add one Sweetheart candy in the middle standing straight up. 

 Okay I made a whole bunch more for the kids.

 Here is a pretty picture of the finished Valentine Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes. I gave them some company by adding some candy around them.

If you are transporting these somewhere just add the tinfoil to the muffin pan and stick the cone back down in it. This will keep them from falling over.
