This super cute and easy soap craft is such a fun hands on activity for kids of all ages! We used this ivory soap carving to help kids remember our Sunday School lesson how how Jesus Heals a Leper. This soap activity is a fun Bible Craft that helps kids from toddler, preschool, pre k, kindergarten, first grade, and 2nd grade students.
Jesus Healing a Leper
This week in Sunday School we are taking the Bible story about how Jesus heals the leper from Matthew 8. To help kids remember the lesson, we did a really fun Bible craft with soap! This Jesus Heals a Leper craft is such a fun project for toddlers, preschoolers, kindergartners, grade 1, grade 2, and grade 3 students!
Whether you are a parent, teacher, or homeschooler – this Bible game is sure to help kids remember what they’ve learned in our free Sunday School lesson. Kids can use their creativity to mold the soap as they like. With all the extra soap pieces you may want to try this FUN Soap Science Experiment for Kids.
Jesus heals the leper craft
For this fun, simple craft all you need is a bar of ivory soap (about $0.30 each), a plastic knife, and small cookie cutters if you like.
Ivory soap works best because not only is it cheap, but it is easy to cut, carve, and rearrange.
Use your finger to gently smooth out the brand name.
Bible Craft for Kids
To make a 3D carving just press the cookie cutter in. Then use your knife to cut out some of the soap surrounding the cookie cutter to make a nice flat surface.
Easy Craft for Kids
The possibilities with this project are endless! You can completely cut out the shape, carve the soap, or make a 3D image on the soap.

Ivory Soap Activity
We used this soap craft along with our Sunday School Lesson from Mark 1:40-45 where we talked about how Jesus healed a leper.
Soap cleanses us from dirt. Jesus cleanses us from sin. Who can take away our sin? Jesus can and wants to cleanse us from sin.
