“The Trinity” Craft Activities for Kids on John 16:12-15 God is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

Use these craft ideas for hands-on fun while learning about the Trinity in your children’s ministry, Sunday School, or kids church lesson. Download the printable craft directions below, watch the video directions, and gather your craft supplies as you prepare to teach.

The Trinity is a challenging concept for children (or even adults!) to understand, but is an important thing to communicate. God is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, inseparable and yet distinct in person and purpose. There is an element of this truth that we may never fully comprehend, and simply take on faith. There are some ideas that we can use, though, to help illustrate the Trinity and hopefully explain it to some extent. These two crafts aim to share and celebrate God’s three-in-one nature. A “Triangle Trinity Model” provides a decorative description of the Trinity. The “I Need S’More Jesus” magnet is a fun and seasonal way to recall that the Trinity has three components in one person.

Bible Verses or Craft Captions to Consider… (John 16:12-15; Psalm 8)

When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
    which you have set in place,
4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
    human beings that you care for them? -Psalm 8:3-4

But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. -John 16:13

I need “s’more” Jesus! He is three in one…just like a s’mores!

God the Father…Jesus the Son…Holy Spirit—three in one! God is triune.

FAQ Kids Ask about the Trinity

How do you explain the Blessed Trinity to a child?

We often use the analogy of the sun when teaching about the Blessed Trinity. Just as the sun is one object consisting of three parts (the sun, the light, and the heat), so too is God one Being who consists of three Persons (the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit). Of course, this is just an imperfect analogy, since God is infinitely greater than anything we can imagine! The word “Trinity” simply means “three-in-one.” And while that might sound like a contradiction, it’s actually a perfect way to describe our all-powerful, all-knowing God. After all, only He could be both Three and One at the same time!

What are some crafts for teaching about the Trinity?

There are many crafts that can be used to teach about the Trinity. One example would be to make a simple Three in One ornament. This can be done by folding a piece of paper into thirds, and then drawing or painting a simple design on each layer. You could also use different colors to represent the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Another idea would be to make a symbol for the Trinity using construction paper or foam stickers. The symbol could be made up of three circles, with each circle representing one person of the Trinity. Or you could make a cross with three arms, each arm representing one part of the Trinity.
