Crayon Drip With Jesus!

We had to do a last minute Switch A Roo with a craft this past Wednesday for VBS. I searched several stores for materials that I could not find. It happens! However, I’m glad we switched at the last minute because we switched to a really big hit. We had the kids make these cool crayon drip art pieces. Even the boys got into it! If you work with kids, you know first hand that not all boys are a fan of craft time. It’s challenging finding crafts that fit their personalities and get them excited to participate. After glueing the crayons to the top of their canvas, the boards were sat outside in the heat.
As the boards sat in the heat outside they began to melt causing crayon wax to drip down the canvas board. The more sunshine that hit the crayons the more beauty that continued to drip. The crayons were changed by the heat. When we follow Jesus, he is the heat that changes us. When we surrender our lives to Jesus he changes our hearts. We become more like Him and less like the world. Just as the crayons melted down creating a beautiful piece of art, We also become more beautiful the more we know Jesus.

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalms 51:10

Also, all the other craft materials have been located and we will continue with that craft on Sunday. Life doesn’t always go as planned. There are moments when you have to be ready to make it happen in a different way.

Thanks Kayla for the photo. We will be posting final results later this week.

Howdy! I am passionate about sharing simple God lessons through everyday real life events in my daily life. I’ve been writing since I was 11. What started off as a way to escape or cope with the uncertainty of life, has turned into a calling. I do believe that God has called me to share what He has placed on my heart with all of you! I recently published a children’s book The Chicks Save Easter. You can find it on amazon. I pray God finds you where you are and you allow Him to take you where He has called you to love and serve Him.
