Jesus Worked in the Carpenter Shop Song

Sunday, January 6, 2013
This is a short song, but the kids like it!

 I attached the visuals to the large craft sticks, because that is what my grandkids like.

This is another song I received from Christina Barkley, and I am using with her permission, but she does not know the original author, etc. Christina and her mom (like most of us) have collected all sorts of Bible songs and ideas over the years. Like most kids Bible songs, the original writers are unknown, and there are several variations to the same song.

You can print the tools here and I used a real piece of sandpaper. But, if you have kids tools, you can use a safe hammer and saw instead of printing the visual!
Here are some black and white printables with the same graphics with a couple of pictures of the tools to color (very simple for preschool), a couple of tool worksheets, and a boy or girl worker, which could lead to a discussion on being a worker for Jesus and what can they do to be a helper like Jesus! You can print those here.


  1. Hi Debbie,
    I just linked up with Manic Monday. Your activities won't work in my public school classroom, but they are perfect for my volunteer job as a Children's Ministry assistant.
    It's nice to meet you.

  2. What a cute song! Love the tools that go with it! Glad you linked up at TGIF - looking forward to browsing more of your site!!

    I am sharing this with my Facebook readers here: tomorrow morning.

    Hope to see you linked up again on Friday,
    Beth =-)

    1. Thanks so much for the nice comment! I love your blog! I have used a lot of your printables with my grandkids that I babysit! Thanks so much for sharing the link!

  3. Oh cute! This will be perfect for the song "We'll work Til Jesus Comes"
    thanks! I was using rubber dollar aisle tools but they seemed to have gone missing.

  4. Oh søt! Dette vil være perfekt for sangen "Vi skal jobbe Til Jesus Comes"
    takk! Jeg brukte gummi dollar midtgangen verktøy, men de syntes å ha forsvunnet.

    1. Oh sweet! This would be perfect for the song "We'll be working to Jesus Comes"
      Thank you! I used rubber U.S. dollar aisle tools, but they seemed to have disappeared.
