The Life Of Tabitha "Dorcas" Lapbook- Tabitha Raised From The Dead Craft and Cupcakes With "Needle and Thread Template"

The Life Of Tabitha "Dorcas" Lapbook
Acts 9:36-42

Here are the pictures of the kids lapbooks they made during class time. Each child got to pick what color of folder they wanted. (the thread and needle clipart picture is free to use, just don't sell it or add it to a free collection online. You can use it for personal use.)

I bought "Smead" Brights Folders- 1/3-cut tabs- Letter Size- Assorted Colors-QTY 100. The folders come in 5 different colors- Yellow, Red, Blue Green and Orange. 

You can purchase the colored folders at

A hole punch was used on the folders so they could go in a large white binder folder.We will be making several different Bible story lapbooks so they can fill their binder up. 

The kids did, The Life Of Tabitha "Dorcas" Lapbook. They learned that Tabitha, also known as Dorcas, was a woman that was full of goodworks and almsdeeds. In scripture she was referred to as a disciple. She sewed garments and coats for widows.  Then one day she died. Peter was sent to her and raised her back from the dead. He put all the widows out of the room and kneeled down beside her and turned the body toward him and said, "Tabitha Arise!" She opened her eyes and saw Peter. 

Tabitha Raised From The Dead Bible Story
Act 9:36  Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas: this woman was full of good works and almsdeeds which she did.
Act 9:37  And it came to pass in those days, that she was sick, and died: whom when they had washed, they laid her in an upper chamber.
Act 9:38  And forasmuch as Lydda was nigh to Joppa, and the disciples had heard that Peter was there, they sent unto him two men, desiring him that he would not delay to come to them.
Act 9:39  Then Peter arose and went with them. When he was come, they brought him into the upper chamber: and all the widows stood by him weeping, and shewing the coats and garments which Dorcas made, while she was with them.
Act 9:40  But Peter put them all forth, and kneeled down, and prayed; and turning him to the body said, Tabitha, arise. And she opened her eyes: and when she saw Peter, she sat up.
Act 9:41  And he gave her his hand, and lifted her up, and when he had called the saints and widows, presented her alive.
Act 9:42  And it was known throughout all Joppa; and many believed in the Lord. 

God showed his mighty strength through Peter and raised Tabitha back from the dead. Many believed in the Lord because of this miracle. 

The kids used the shirt pattern (availabe for free below). They cut the shirt pattern out and laid it on some felt and cut it out. 

They hot glued the shirts to their folders on the inside of the folder on the right hand side and decorated them using some left over materials that I had in my closet from home. It was interesting to see how they decorated them. Cute, huh!

I took white lunch sacks that I bought from Wal-mart and cut the very bottom half off and taped it to the folder under their shirts they made. This will make a little pocket that opens up. I wrote the words "Tabitha's Sewing Pattern's" on the front of it and stuck the sewing pattern down in the pocket.  Then the kids taped the three other pictures to the right of the folder, "Peter, Tabitha, Needle and Thread, and a Coat. The coat will come in black and white for the kids to color it. The rest of the pictures will come colored.

ABC's "Who Is Jesus?" White Binder With Clear Front Pocket Template (Leopard ABC"S)

ABC's Who Is Jesus Sunday School Craft Cut Outs White Binder With Clear Front Pocket Template

 ABC's "Who Is Jesus? "
White Binder With Clear Front Pocket Template
I made three letters, "A", "B", and "C" into  printable leopard templates so you can put it in a three ring white binder that has a clear pocket in the front.
Each child in Sunday school class will get a binder with a clear pocket in the front to slide any piece of paper or artwork they want in it. Just print these off for the kids and cut them out using decorative cutting scissors. I then added a piece of colored construction paper behind the cut out leopard letter and slide down into the front of the binder.
ABC's Whoe Is Jesus Binder Template Sunday School Craft White Binder With Clear Front Pocket Template
You can fill the notebook with lots of different things. They can add their own stuff that you had them draw or you can fill the binder with print outs of quizzes, bible trivia, or just whatever you want to put in there.  You could even do prayer request sheets or lessons. I have three different printable prayer request sheets below that tie in with the leopard theme for the binder.
When the binder is full let the kids take them home. You could even personalize the letters with their names on them. Just open the printable leopard template up in your paint program on your computer and type their name.

During classtime if your children are old enough to write answers down then you could do a bible trivia and ask them to write their answers down. Then after they are done you could take the binders up and grade them and give the child a scratch and sniff sticker on their paper. Then the next time they open their binders up they will see what they got and find the sticker.

Thou Shalt Not Covet Coloring Page For Ten Commandments

Thou Shalt Not Covet Coloring Page
Exodus 20:17

Just print this free coloring sheet out and let the kids color it. Use this with the matching lesson plan it comes with, "Thou Shalt Not Covet Lesson". Or see all of our Ten Commandments Sunday School Lessons.

Ten Commandments Sunday School Lessons- 10 Commandments Lesson For Kids

See all Ten Commandments Lessons

See all Ten Commandments Snacks

Your class will never forget the Ten commandments once you go through each lesson like this. Each week you can do a new commandment that comes with crafts, mazes, puzzles, snacks and more.  Make sure you have the children say the 10 commandments out loud in order each time you do a lesson so that way they can start getting this into their little minds. It will help them to memorize it. Kids learn from repetition.

I made Ten commandments cards for the kids and had them color them and cut them out and we put them in ziplock bags with their name wrote on the outside of the plastic ziplock bag. With each lesson I get the cards out and have the kids say these out loud with me twice while they look at them. We have the Ten Commandments Snacks.  We also have the Ten Commandments Bulletin Board idea.

(Just click on the Ten Commandments cards link that you see up above and print the black and white template out that I made and use that. You could also use it as a coloring page. I originally made it for the bible matching game, but you can use it many different ways.)
