  1. This is the best idea I’ve seen in a long time. Thank you. I’ve been a teacher for 30 years and this is so creative and perfect and I need to applaud you and say thank you. My second grade students in Faith Formation will love it.

  2. Hi Anna Joy!

    Thank you so much for these printables to help kids participate in Worship Services. I was looking for the Christmas Finger Puzzle. Could you help me with that? Thanks and God Bless!

    • I don’t have anything in French at this point, Glenda. I would love to be able to translate these materials some day, but don’t have the resources to do that at this time. Thanks for asking!

  3. Thank you for the Easter finger puzzle, also known by other names. I’ll use this at Sunday School and possibly will share it with others who teach the Christian faith in state schools here. Much appreciated.

  4. Hola hermanos desde mi amado país Venezuela estoy interesada en obtener todo tipo de material de Escuela Dominical para niños de 3 y 4 años. Gracias por la ayuda, sean todos bendecidos por siempre.

    • Moraima, estoy tan feliz de poder usar estos materiales. Si Dios quiere, me encantaría traducir estos materiales al español un día. Que Dios los bendiga y su ministerio a estos preciosos niños en su Escuela Dominical.

  5. Thank you so much…..I am always looking for an inexpensive craft for our missionary friends in Texas. Happy to see a KJV for them……would have loved a Spanish one too as they have a much larger following across the border in Rio Bravo Mexico.

    • Judy, I would LOVE to translate these materials into Spanish and Portuguese (my second language). Someday, Lord willing! Thank you for supporting your missionary friends. I grew up in Brazil, an MK, so I have a special place in my heart for missions. May God bless you!

  6. Thank you, so very much for the Easter cooties printout. It’s difficult to do something different each year, teaching my Sunday schoolers. They will love these.

  7. I love it! Excellent resource for my Sunday School class . Thank you so much for sharing. The children loved it! God Bless!

    • Mayra, if you click on the brown links at the bottom of the post which say “Easter Finger Puzzle Black and White KJV”, etc., you will open up a PDF file. From there, you should see a little printer icon (mine is in the top right hand corner, although this may change based on the computer or device you are using). I hope this helps.

  8. This was such a find. I remember these from my youth and this is just what I needed for my kids to keep them interested in my lesson. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the time you put into this for those of us that teach children.

  9. This is so very generous – thank you! Ideal for our Sunday school class and the girls especially is going to love it. I’m going to be a popular teacher 🙂

    • Liz, click on the dark brown, large print below the last picture that says “Easter Finger Puzzle Black and White KJV” etc. That will open a PDF that you can print.

  10. Thank you! What a brilliant idea!!
    I found this on Pintrest somehow.
    I’m printing them for our small church for the kids to do during the Easter sermon.
    I love how you made KJV, ESV, and NIV. That was thoughtful of you.
    Resurrection blessings to you and your family.

  11. Thank you for the great resource. I’ll be using this for a small group activity for 3rd/4th graders. I’ll look forward to using your site in the future! Have a wonderful Easter Celebration!

  12. This is perfect! Thank you so much. I’d like to use this in church on Sunday. Is this something that could also be handed out at an Easter Egg Hunt outreach? Thank you for creating it.

  13. I love this! I’m always looking for a new way to tell my daughter the Easter story. She will have so much fun coloring this and folding it. I love that we can play it like a game too. Thanks!!

  14. This is a great way to share with our Sunday school kids this Easter Sunday. Thank you for the great craft.

  15. I really love this! I know my grandkids will love doing these while we’re there for Easter. I had a little problem when printing the directions for folding. It showed up as the directions for the Christmas one. I don’t mean to sound foolish, but will those directions work as well?

    • Cindy, the finger puzzle will fold in exactly the same way as the Christmas one. I was being lazy and didn’t want to go in and re-do the images on the directions. 🙂

  16. Thank you very much for providing a great resource and activity for kids and for making it so easy! The finger activity has a REAL message, LOVE THAT!

  17. What a great craft! Was looking for something to do with my daughter’s class tomorrow and was thrilled to find this. THANK YOU FOR SHARING! Blessings, and have a wonderful celebration of our Savior’s resurrection!

  18. Hello Anna,
    I run an after school program for low income kids and have to provide most of my own funding. I found your resources and I love them! Thank you so much for providing free, quality materials for those of us wanting to share God’s love with children! I am certain “my kids” will be blessed by them!

    • Thank you so much for your ministry to these kids, Susan. May God bless you and give you wisdom and strength as you share God’s love with them. I am humbled that you would be able to use these resources with them. May God be with you!

  19. Hopefully I can find an egg to fit the folded puzzle in for my 2 and 4 year old! Then I printed a second one for my nieces and nephews. This year our eggs will contain less candy and more pieces telling the real Easter story. So excited to see how they will have fun learning the real reason we celebrate! Looking forward to checking back at Christmas for some Christ-centered ideas!

  20. Hi Anna!
    Found your site through Pinterest, and I really appreciate having something that clearly talks about the Biblical perspective of Easter. I am the homeroom parent for my son’s 2nd grade classroom in a Christian school, but the Easter party is left up to parents. Because I am a pastor as well (but with adults, not kids) I have gone searching every year for what to do with 20 kids but not a lot of money for supplies. This is perfect! Can’t wait to do it this week.
    Thank you for taking the time to offer this up and for free as well.
    You are a blessing to many!
    Take care,

  21. I am so excited to use this with my class of elementary-aged girls! I never really knew how to do the cootie catcher back in school 🙂 I think I understand how to play it, though. I’m thinking about modifying the game so that the child always has to choose 1 or 2 before lifting the flap, and have 1 and 2 always be the questions. Unless there’s a better way to play? Thank you so much for making it!

    • That would be a great way to play it Tori. Plus, the verses on the inner flaps have the answers to the questions 1 & 2, so if someone is not sure of the answer, they can read the verse. I don’t think there is a “wrong” way to play these. May God bless you!

  22. Thanks so much for the finger puzzle and Easter booklet! Our small Sunday School really appreciates sites like yours! So great for last minute planning!! Happy Easter!

  23. Thanks for the wonderful Easter finger puppet idea. I plan to hand these out to our Caraway Street kids, age 4 – Grade 4 on Palm Sunday.

  24. fABULOUS!!! Thank you so much for the wonderful Easter activities! This is such a blessing to our small chapel. We are extremely grateful for your giving hearts!

  25. I’ve been looking for the craft I will do at our church’s Easter Egg Hunt. This finger puzzle looks like a good craft.

  26. In my year of teaching mixed age beginning readers in Sunday school I’ve learned that if it’s a game and we play it often the retention is great so I’m always looking for new ‘games’ or tools. I took this to class on Sunday and in playing it asked what other topics could it be used for and out of the mouth of babes came “Ten Commandments”. So while ther are only 8 triangles we mocked on up using two interior squares. The other suggestion was the 12 disciples-4 too many vs spaces but I’m going to try using the four interior squares.

    Since you asked for comments thought I’d share ideas my kids mentioned.

    • Kathy, the folding directions are in a PDF Download. If you scroll down to the last finger puzzle picture, you will see some large brown links – Easter Finger Puzzle Black and White, Easter Finger Puzzle Full Color, and Finger Puzzle Folding Directions. Click on “Finger Puzzle Folding Directions” to download and print the directions (if desired). I had to do it this way because, no matter how many times I fold something by myself at home, as soon as I stand up in front of my class, I completely forget how to fold it. I need the printed instructions right in front of me. Thankfully, one of my 4rth grade boys is great at origami, so I usually defer to him. Lol.

  27. I will be using these in a couple of weeks for ages 4 to 12. I will let you know the overall response. I will try them out on my kiddos first and see their response. My 7 year old boy loves to make these! Thanks for sharing.

  28. Thank you very much for your work! I really liked your materials. May God bless you and give you wisdom! I live in Moldova, but we have one God and one goal – that we grow in the knowledge of Him and that our children will know and serve Him.

  29. Hey! I love this idea!! I think my kids would love it too! Do you have this available in something besides the King James version? KJV is harder for my kids to understand, so just thought I’d check! Thanks!!

  30. Thank you so much for sharing this! I am planning to use it with my 3rd grade Sunday School class, and I know they will love it!

  31. Wonderful idea! Will be making it in my Sunday skool class…will write the verses in urdu because that is the language all children understand in my class!thank you for sharing it!

  32. I am hoping to use this with our special needs ministry at our church during the Easter season. Thanks for making the pattern available with a lot of great info from God’s Word.

  33. The Finger Puzzle is fantastic! Do you have the verses in a translation besides the King James Translation? Thanks!

  34. This is so cute and such a great ideal! I love that it’s KJV. That’s all my church uses and it’s hard to find lessons and activities with the KJV verses.
    Thank you so much, God bless you!
