General Notes:
The Materials Needed lists for these crafts omit certain standard items that we assume you have, such as crayons, scissors, and glue. We also assume you have cleanup supplies, such as paper towels, soap, and access to a couple of sinks.
Make sure that your crafts leader has access to the lessons (or at least the lesson summaries), so that they can be aware of lesson tie-ins.
Your craft leader should go through all the crafts ahead of time and understand fully how they work. Do think ahead.
Many of these crafts call for auxilliary documents (e.g., scenes from the lesson, patterns, and so forth). When we have these online, we will include links to them in the chart below and/or from the page on each individual craft. See SVG Documents for a general explanation.

* Needs some work (such as improved instructions, etc).
** Needs substantial work or should ideally be replaced. (In some cases the idea is sound but the implementation lacking. In other cases, the craft does not correlate well with the Bible lesson. In the case of the plate masks, they just don't seem age-appropriate beyond about second grade.)
