Children’s Ministry Christmas Craft: Potpourri Ornaments

Teach kids to how to reach those around them, including their families, by living the faith that is presented in this craft-based Bible lesson, Potpourri Ornaments.


You’ll need:

  • Frozen-juice can lids,
  • wooden craft sticks,
  • small boxes with lids,
  • card stock and scissors,
  • large buttons,
  • potpourri,
  • white glue,
  • 8-inch lengths of narrow ribbon, and
  • small doilies or paper coasters.

Children’s Ministry Christmas Craft: Potpourri Ornaments

Read aloud 2 Corinthians 2:15. Then say: Choose an object to create an ornament. Spread glue all over one side of your object. Press both ends of a piece of ribbon into the glue to form a loop. Cover the glue-covered side of your object with potpourri. Allow this to dry

Optional: Glue a doily to the back or bottom of your object.

Talk teasers

Ask:

  • How does your potpourri ornament smell?
  • What does it mean that we are a “fragrance of Christ”?
  • How do you think your faith in Christ smells to the people around you-very fragrant, a little fragrant, or not fragrant at all?
  • How can we be very fragrant for Christ at school? at home? at play?

Say: Use your ornament to remind you that Jesus wants us to be like him.

Close in prayer for the areas children mention, and ask God to work a miracle in those areas.
