Heaven Craft Ideas

Use these Children’s Ministry craft activities on the New Heaven and New Earth described in Revelation 21:1-7. They are a perfect addition to any Sunday School or Kids Bible lesson on the topic of heaven.

Life is full of challenges, but as Christians we have the blessing of knowing that something wonderful awaits us after this life. In Revelation, we receive the promise that God will wipe away our tears, give us a new home, and make all things new. Even young children can take heart in knowing that sickness and sorrow don’t last and we have great things to look forward to. These crafts aim to celebrate that hope. “Crayon Cupcakes” demonstrate creating something new from something old and tarnished. A “Tears Wiped Away Hankie” offers a decorative reminder that God will wipe away our tears. 

Bible Verses or Craft Caption Ideas to Consider… (Revelation 21:1-7)

He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” -Revelation 21:4

And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” -Revelation 21:5

God makes all things new!

Tears no more…God wipes away our tears!

We cry now…someday our tears will be gone!    (read more Bible verses about Heaven)
