Cain and Abel Sunday School Lesson Ideas



Cain and Abel Bible Verse Coloring  Sheet for Children's Sunday School from

The ideas for these Cain and Abel crafts and activities come from the printable Sunday lesson on The Resource Room, a members-only section of Danielle's Place.

In this lesson children learn about Cain and Abel, and how Cain made the wrong choice. They learn that sin separates us from God. Sin requires punishment, but God is a kind and loving God and forgives us, and restores our relationship with him if we confess our sins and ask for forgiveness.

Included in this lesson is the printable Bible Verse coloring sheet pictured to the right. The Bible verse is 1 John 1:9.

2. Stuff the bag with plastic grocery bags. Gather the top of the bag around the paint stick or support and glue it to the paint stick or support.

3. Cut the edges off around the two paper bowls, leaving just enough edge to glue the two paper bowls together. Glue a bowl to one side of the bag and support and then glue another paper bowl to the other bowl top to top. Paint the bowl flesh color.

Act Out the Story

Place your children in groups of three and have each group practice making a skit about Cain and Abel and then have all the groups perform their skits in front of the class. If possible record the skits and replay them in class.


Play a Relay Game

Before class write words and phrases describing Cain and Abel on wooden clothespins and place them in a large bowl. In class divide your children up into two teams and place the bowl in the middle of the two teams just before the start line. Place empty jars at the end of the room across from each team. You will need two jars for each team one that says, "Cain" and one that says, "Abel". Each child, in turn, picks up a clothespin, reads the phrase, and then runs to the other side of the room, and drops the clothespin in the appropreate jar. They must hold their arms straight out in front of them so that their arms are parallel to the floor. When the bowl is empty the game is over. The team that has the most correct clothespins in the jars wins.
