Tagged With: Christian Halloween
Halloween can present may problems and issues for many Christians. Every year, there is the debate on whether to celebrate it or not. For me, I like to teach my religion class to find the good points to it. Halloween only needs to be as scary and “demonic” as people want it to be.
Liz Curtis Higgs has a great book called The Pumpkin Patch Parable. You can read about it by clicking the book cover below.
I used the basis of this book to create the craft that we did in religion class tonight. The kids all colored in their pumpkin patches and the pattern pieces. Then, they cut out all the pattern pieces. As we read the poem together, the kids assembled their pumpkin patches.
Here’s a thumbnail view of what’s included in this craft project…..
My class had so much fun with this!! This was a fairly simple craft for us to do with restricted time. They love the coloring (we used markers). And, they enjoy anything they get to cut and glue!! They were all showing their parents as they got picked up, so I know it was a success for my little ones.
If you’d like to download this freebie, just….
So, Shine with the light of Jesus and enjoy the project….and Halloween!! I always appreciate any comments or suggestions that you leave. It helps me to know that what I created is used or what I do is like or not liked. Also, please click the button below to vote for my blog….thanks!!

I was asked by a member of my group to make something for Halloween with a Christian theme. It’s one of those holidays that’s so contriversial at times. It’s one that’s definitely not associated with being Christian. Does that mean that Christians shouldn’t celebrate it?? I don’t know, but that’s not for a discussion here!!
This member wanted something using “The LORD shall be your light forver.” That’s from Isaiah 60:19. I loved the idea of creating something for this. After all, I’d love to be able to hand something out to my kids for Halloween. This same member wants me to do a lesson plan for her on this topic. I’ve taken notes, but haven’t gotten started on it. It’ll be coming soon!! Ah, but I wonder off topic.
I made some sucker covers, a 3-pc. leave puzzle, bookmark and envelope, and a door hanger that you can download that has this verse on each item. I hope that you’ll use them and enjoy them. What better way to “celebrate” Halloween than to spread the Christian word!!
