Sharing what you have

This week for Sabbath school the children are looking at the early Christian church and how they shared everything they had! 

This craft is designed to also be an activity! Give each child a single item and have them share what they have until they only have one item left. They will hopefully end up with one of each! This craft will make sharing fun!

What you'll need:

  • printer + paper
  • pencils, felt tips
  • glue sticks 

Child Involvement:

  • Color
  • Tape/glue
  • spin twine (fine motor skill)



  • Prepare the craft by cutting out all the pieces. Glue the backpacks together, making sure you leave an opening at the top for the children to put the items inside the backpack. (I tried to make them basic shapes for easy cutting!)
  • Given each child a backpack and a bunch of a single item. Have them share the items until they have one of each (you will need to encourage proper sharing!)
  • Once the sharing is completed, the children can color in.
  • NOTE:  Use thicker stock paper. I this paper from Amazon** which I use for ALL my crafts!
