    Here is a Sunday school coloring page you can use as a quick, easy and fun craft for younger kids. All you need to do is print out the coloring sheet below and have a few other items ready for the kids to use.

    The coloring page below is basic and simple on purpose. It is designed to let the kids express their creativity!

    First Sunday School Craft Idea

    If you have smaller kids, go ahead and cut out the rocks as a whole below. There is no need to cut the rocks out separately.

    If your kids are old enough to cut themselves, let them color Joshua's memorial rocks below first. Then, let them cut them out and paste them to a colored piece of construction paper.

    Have the kids cut out the words at the top and paste it on the construction paper.

    Second Sunday School Craft Idea

    Another option is a bit messy, but is sure is fun! If it is warm outside, you may want to do this craft outside!

    You will need to have the kids cut out the rocks and glue them to the construction paper. Next, have the kids put glue on one rock at a time. Have colored sand ready for the kids to sprinkle onto the glue making different colored 'sandy' rocks!

    See idea number three down the page!

    Third Sunday School Craft Idea

    Follow the first part of the craft above, except have tissue paper or small cut up colored paper for the kids to glue onto the rocks instead.

    Joshua fought the battle of Jericho is a very well known bible story that kids love to hear. Our Sunday school kids normally say, "Tell it again" just as soon as I've finished. While I love that they want to hear it again, we very seldom have time to tell it again.

    That's why I've come up with the Sunday school activities below.

    Give the kids more than just a bible story - give them the excitement of learning the word of God!!

    Here's the FREE Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho Sunday school lesson.

    Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho Sunday School Activity

    You'll need a few items before getting started.

    • cardboard boxes or other building materials (pillows, paper bags, etc.)
    • empty toilet paper rolls, paper towel rolls, or wrapping paper rolls to use as horns (you can also purchase real horns at your local dollar store or order them online)
    • chairs
    • rocks (real or pretend)
    You can either choose to do this activity during the story or after to reinforce what the kids have learned depending on how much time you have.

    First, you'll need to line up chairs in two rows. Leave only enough room between the lined up chairs for the kids to walk through easily.

    Next, place the rocks halfway down the row of chairs in the floor.

    This is going to serve as your Jordan River and the rocks in the center of it.

    You can choose to already have the walls of Jericho built using the cardboard boxes or other building material (hint: you can also use small plastic chairs) or let the kids help you make a round wall.

    Now, have the kids walk through the Jordan River just like in the Sunday school lesson of Joshua picking up one rock on their way through.

    After they have passed through all the chairs, have the place their blocks in a pile just as Joshua did.

    Now, give the kids their horns.

    Have them walk around the 'walls of Jericho' six times quietly, then on the seventh time have them blow their horns and SHOUT!

    After they shout, let the kids knock down the walls!

    If you have time, reset and start again.

    We loving having extra stuff for our kids to do in Sunday school. We especially love extra games and printouts that not only reinforces what they've learned in class, but it's great when they can take the sheet home to tell their parents or other family members what they've learned.

    This is our first criss-cross puzzle we've done. We hope you like it.

    There are two different versions below. One is for younger kids who are in their early reading years and the other is for middle grade kids and teens. You can also use the bottom one for adults if you'd like.

    The book of Joshua is an amazing book of the bible. Even though many parts of it isn't widely taught for Sunday school lessons, most kids know the bible story and the song "Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho".

    Our kids love that song because we march in a circle holding hands and when it comes to the part about the 'walls come tumbling down', we all fall to the ground. I think the kids just like seeing us fall to the ground, but it works and it's fun!

    Watch the "Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho" video!
