With the help of two fantastic volunteers, I teach Sunday School at Wentworth Baptist Church.
Last summer, we did a whole unit on the Fruits of the Spirit, and I thought I would try to share everything we came up with. There are lesson plans with activities, crafts, worship songs and prayer/discussion topics. Our class is made up of 3-5 year olds but this lesson could be adapted to a younger or older audience. The lessons are created in order but they certainly don't need to be used in this way. I have also included my "brainstorming" notes - no guaranties it make any sense!
Intro (I didn't create a lesson for the intro. We coloured a colouring sheet and we read a little intro story.
Each week, we decorated a "fruit" and added to our bulletin board. Today I realized we didn't take a photo of the final result!
Self control (game)
Colour photos of fruit (I didn't create this one and I don't remember it's source)
There isn't a printable for every craft. I hope the descriptions in each lesson plan will be clear so you can figure out how to create the art activity.

Take Home Sheet:
Each week, we send home a little note that tells the parent what we talked about. There is a little colouring picture and an idea how to incorporate that weeks lesson into the families week. We started adding the Bible verse that we practice after this unit, so you will see that version in the future. These are formatted to print on a legal size (8.5" x 14") but you can edit your printer settings and it will print on a letter size (8.5" x 11") quite fine. They are JPGs so they aren't able to be edited.
