Nehemiah Sunday School Lesson

If you are using this as a Sunday School craft along with Nehemiah 1-2, you might want to tell the kids “Just like Nehemiah inspected the walls for repair, you need to inspect areas of your life that need God’s repair. Help them think of areas they can inspect.” We used it as part of our Sunday School Lessons where  Nehemiah inspects the wall.  It is simple to make and only uses a couple pipe cleaners per kid.

How to make glasses out of pipe cleaners

It is so simple to make glasses out of pipe cleaners. Let me show you how with just a few simple supplies:

Materials Needed:

  • 2 craft sticks (also known as pipe cleaners or chenille sticks) – any colors

We choose to use yellow for the spectacles and blue for the side pieces of the glasses. First, fold your first pipe cleaner in half.

Now on one half of the folded chenille stick leave a small gap and then make a circle, twisting the end around the circle to hold in place.

Repeat with the other side. Pipe cleaner glasses craft

Repeat with the other side of the remaining half leaving a small gab next to the gab created by the other side. This will be the middle part of the glasses that fits over the nose.

Now, carefully use scissors to cut the second pipe cleaner in half.  The easiest way is to fold the pipe cleaner in half first so you make sure you have it evenly divided into 2 equal parts.

With one of the halves twist the end several times around the yellow circle. Fold back other end of blue pipe cleaner so it can sit on your ear.
