Bible Treasure Theme ~ Part 1

treasure gold and coins

AHOY ME HEARTIES! ARRR! YAR HA ARRR!

One of my most favorite themes that I have done for my Compassion kids was a Bible Treasure theme ~ full of pirates, treasure chests and swashbuckling adventure ~ to encourage them to dig into eternal treasure and the promises of God! It was such a fun theme! Here is a sample of what I sent and how I did it.

BIBLE TREASURE THEME ~ ADAPT FOR ANY AGE

If you are looking for letter writing ideas for your Compassion child, this is a great theme that can be adapted for boys and girls of any age. There is a lot to cover, so I will split it into 3 separate posts. All the items here are available for free printable download and have been designed exclusively for you (I had to completely redo all of them for this blog :) by Paper Gifts for Estefany. I have deliberately designed this theme so that it can be adapted for your child, no matter how old they are… enjoy!

BIBLE TREASURE SCRAPBOOK FOR KIDS ~ FREE PRINTABLE (A4)

The first thing I did for my kids was a Bible Treasure Scrapbook page where my kids could write down some of their favourite Bible verses. I used a whole heap of treasure related tiny clipart (things like coins, treasure chests, bits of maps and compasses, etc), so if you want to add some in yourself, you could easily do so. Just you use this tutorial as a guide. This was my favourite treasure chest and I used it everywhere in this theme.

A TON OF BIBLE VERSES ~ FREE PRINTABLE LIST

As part of this theme, I had already decided to start to introduce my kids to the ton of Bible verses, one (back-to-back and laminated) page at a time. Months later, I still slip in a new page for them each time I post a letter. You are most welcome to print it for your own children too, if you wish. There is a print button at the end of that post and you can easily adapt it so that it is in your child’s favourite colours to make it look interesting.

In Kefa’s last letter he wrote: ‘I would like to thank you for letters you send to me. They are making me glad. Especially verses from the Bible you send me to read. I am going to read them and master them so that they help me in difficulties…’

BIBLE TREASURE MAP FOR KIDS ~ FREE PRINTABLE (A4)

Of course, every young pirate needs a treasure map. I started with a standard treasure map, then added my own bits and words (even on the map itself) to make it specifically a Bible Treasure Map. I’ve left this page blank, so you can do the same. There are some great map ideas for all ages which I will share with you on a separate post, including a really cute idea that shows you how to make a map of a playground, weaving around the slides and swings and hopefully ending up in the sand box to dig for the treasure.  :)

BIBLE TREASURE TRACEOVER PUZZLE FOR KIDS ~ FREE PRINTABLE (A4)

Next, a Bible Treasure traceover puzzle of some Bible verses about treasure. Most of my kids are also learning English, so this is something that I also included for our older children to help them with their English studies. Add your favourite treasure clip art.

BIBLE TREASURE FRAMES FOR KIDS ~ FOR COLOURING AND PUZZLE PAGES ~ FREE PRINTABLE (A4)

Choose your own treasure colouring and puzzle pages and insert them into these two frames using my tutorial as a guide to show you how. There are two free printable Bible treasure frames. One for portrait. One for landscape. I combined lots of smaller digging-for-treasure colouring pages (e.g. open treasure chests with coins and treasure spilling out) into the one page, to make it look like there was treasure everywhere; then in the middle of it all a pirate – ignoring all the coins and – finding the greatest treasure of all… a Bible. I will share that link and more great treasure colouring and puzzle links in part 2.

  10. Love what you’ve done! Our church youth group’s theme is “Treasure Hunters” so I’m looking for ideas for classroom decorations and graphics I can make large poster/canvas prints for classroom walls.
