Who doesn't love the surprise Pop-up crafts! Pop-up books have delighted children (and grown-ups) for ages. Because of their growing popularity, there are many pop-up books for children, and even Bible pop-up books on the market. Of course, the downside of pop-up books is that they tend to get lots of use and get torn. That's where printable Bible story pop-up books and crafts come in: You can print and make more copies of them whenever you need to if they get torn, without having to re-purchase a book.

Some pop-up are very beautiful and elaborate, but we purposely keep our color and fold pop-ups simple so young children can have fun making them. My Bible Crafts' pop-ups are all very easy to make with just a little cutting for the parent or teacher. Then children can have a good time coloring, folding and gluing the craft pages - easy enough for even preschoolers. Then they have a fun Bible "toy craft" to play with to help them re-tell the Bible story. Children will also be learning paper engineering skills and be in the process of learning how to design their own pop-ups. They will be proud to say, "I made it myself!"

These aren't just more fun crafts for kids. You, as a teacher or parent can use them to have an exciting interactive way to teach important Bible stories or Sunday school lessons. They will keep children's attention focused on the Bible story and help them be active in their learning, so that they will remember the Bible stories for years to come. Some of our Bible story pop-ups come in color (in addition to black and white) so you as the teacher or parent can make them up into crafts without having to color them. They all come in black and white craft pages for the children to color and make their own. All of the resources on all three of our websites are printable. The ones on My Bible Crafts come as pdf files as a download.

Since pop-ups are a favorite, we put all of our pop-up Bible story books and crafts in one place - on this page. We'll be adding more as they are created for the My Bible Crafts website.
