In continuing with my children’s crafts for Christian songs, today’s craft goes with the song “Jesus Loves Me”! This is such a classic religious song for kids!
- Printable “Jesus Loves Me” CD Sleeve (available below)
- Thin Markers or Colored Pencils (I think colored pencils worked best for this craft)
- Photograph of your kids (alternately, you can have them draw themselves in the box)
- Glue Stick
- Clear Tape
- Ribbon or String
First, print this “Jesus Loves Me” coloring page that will fit into your CD case.
I just doodled this little frame, but I found that the kids really enjoyed coloring it and took their time! Lots of little spaces for tons of color- that’s why I suggested the colored pencils. Make sure they’re nice and sharp!
Once it’s all colored, use a glue stick to attach your picture in the middle square.
Cut the frame out around the outside line, and it will slide right into your CD case. Use a few pieces of clear tape on the back to hold it in place and keep the picture from sliding around.
You can make your CD case into a frame 2 different ways. You can either make a frame that will stand up on a table top, or you can make a frame that can hang on the wall.
To make a frame that stands up, you’ll need to attach a short piece of ribbon from one side to the other. Use tape to attach the ribbon. This will keep the CD case from opening too far when you set it on your table.
You just want the CD case to open enough to stand up.
If you want to make a CD case frame that hangs up, start by tying a piece of ribbon or sting into a circle. We tied ours with a cute little bow.
Just close the ribbon into the CD case! See from the back:
Now it can hang on a nail, or even on a doorknob.
My kids absolutely loved these! This craft is so easy and cheap, you could do it with an entire Sunday school class or Vacation Bible School group! I love the idea of using my old CD cases for crafts. I should come up with some more ideas for getting rid of them. 😉Pin It
