Let your students make a Colorful Parrot craft for your Sunday school or Bible club program. Choose one of the Bible verses your students are learning and print it on a sheet of poster board so the children can copy it onto their craft. (Or print the Bible memory verse onto stickers or labels for younger children. Make one sticker for each child.)
Give each child a drinking straw, various colors of construction paper, glue, tape, a 9-inch piece of yarn, scissors, and crayons or markers. Bring a hole punch (or several, if you have a large group). Copy the Parrot pattern for each child. This pattern is a download you can purchase for just $1.99. Then print as many patterns with instructions as you need.
Make sure names are on the parrots after they are completed. Let each child add a memory verse sticker to the craft or print the memory verse on the parrot as a reminder of the Bible story or lesson theme.
As the children work, talk about ways they can tell others about Jesus this week. Say the memory verse together a few times.
