Sowing Seeds In Good Soil Craft

This Sunday, I get to teach the littles at our church about sowing seeds in good soil.  This is the craft I have planned to go with the Bible story.

I drew out a simple scene with a path, some weeded area, a rocky area, and a nice big patch of good soil.  I traced them all in marker then colored with crayon.  I made color copies for each child.


I will swirl glue onto the copied page for each child as pictured below.

Be generous with the glue.

Allow the children to smear the glue well over the picture.  I have to admit that I had a lot of fun doing this for the sample craft.  I imagine the littles will like it, too.



Add beans or seeds all over the picture just as the farmer in Jesus’s parable.  This is a good time to remind the littles (or to gauge their memory) of what happened to the seeds that fell in each of the places.


The seeds have been sown.
