It’s always such a pleasure to team up with Amy from Raising Arrows. Amy has written a lovely devotional for young children based upon the Fruit of the Spirit. Using Galatians 5:22-23, Amy developed a simple, easy-to-understand 9-day devotional for the little people in your life.
To be used in conjunction with this devotional, Amy developed a few printables to help supplement the learning of the Fruit. I simply put it all on paper.
- Fruit Coloring Sheets – Color and cut out the fruit which corresponds to the current day’s Fruit
- Fruit Basket – Color and cut out (or print a colored version) of a Fruit Basket to place each day’s Fruit
- Fruit Chart – Use this colorful daily checklist to keep a record of the times you “catch” your child displaying a Fruit of the Spirit
Fruit of the Spirit Coloring Sheets
Print out one page for each child participating in the devotional. After coloring the fruit, have the child cut out the picture to the best of his ability. Then have your child glue the fruit inside the Fruit Basket.
Fruit of the Spirit Fruit Basket
There are two fruit baskets available for download. One basket is pink and the other is an illustration that can be colored by your child. After printing the basket that you prefer, have your child cut it out, being careful not to cut off the tabs on the edges.
After cutting out the basket, fold the tabs back to create a pop-up type basket in which you can insert (glue) the fruit each day. Simply fold back the tabs and tape only the tabs to another sheet of paper. Using a larger piece of construction paper makes a nice display!
The tabs are a difficult to fold back since the bowl is rounded. This step might be best for mom to complete.
After you’ve taped down the tabs, your basket is ready to hold the Fruit!
Fruit of the Spirit Daily Checklist
I love this Fruit Checklist! Children are very visual and this is an excellent way to show them their progress.
There are a couple of ways you can use this chart:
When you observe your child exhibiting a Fruit of the Spirit, place a sticker in the correct square. If you’d like, set a goal with your child: ‘Yesterday you displayed 4 types of Fruit. Today let’s aim for 5!’
- Tally Marks
When you observe your child displaying a Fruit, make a tally mark in the correct square. Add up each square at the end of the day or add up total tally marks for the day or week.
The checklist is designed for only one child, so print as many checklists as you need based on your family size. Remember that mom can keep a checklist too!
All of the printables you need to supplement the Fruit of the Spirit Devotional are contained in this one-time .pdf download.
Enjoy learning about the Fruit of the Spirit with your Little Ones! Amy and I pray that this will be a wonderful resource for you and your family.

Remember to stop by Amy’s and print your Fruit of the Spirit Devotional if you haven’t already done so!

Hello there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after reading through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyways, I’m definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!
Is there any way to get a download of your Fruit of the Spirit printable? My daughter did it 2 years ago, she is seven now and she was begging me to find it and do it again…such a sweet request, that I was pouring over the internet to find you!!! Let me know if it is something that I need to pay for;)
Thanks for all that you do!
Of course! What a sweet request!!
Just click on the image below ‘Download here…’ and it should start downloading immediately.
Let me know if you have trouble for some reason!
I can’t find the download link either. I was excited to come across these printables. We do VBS on our mission trips and was going to use some of these. Hope I can figure it out. Thank you.
I figured it out thank you so much

Oh you’re welcome! I’m so glad you could use them in your VBS. That makes my day. 🙂
Popping in from Amy’s. I tried to download the printables but couldn’t get anything but a message that said, “Headers sent”. Did anyone else have trouble with this?
I found the problem and fixed it. Thanks so much for letting me know!
Thanks! We’ve worked on this in the past, but it’s still not engrained. We’ll try this out!
What a valuable resource for teaching the Fruit of the Spirit in an effective
meaninful way in Children’s Church, and at home after the class is over.
Thank you for Blessing the lives of so many with you gifts and talents.
You’re so welcome, Debra! I’m glad you are able to use them.
I can’t seem to find a way to print the fruit and basket. Is there a printable for this?
Thank you so much for this!
Thank you for this devotional!
Love your site and all the wonderful resources. Would love to use the fruit of the spirit printables but I cannot get it to open. Can you help?
Appreciate all the work you’ve done to help a mom like me teach my children God’s word.
Are you using Adobe Reader? It’s by far the best way to open all of the pdfs on my site. 🙂
Thank you so much for this. We are new to the Bible and just started going to Church 3 weeks ago. This will help me and the kids!
I am so glad you can use it, Cori! So tickled for you that you and your kiddos are in church. Praying for you as you start your walk with the Lord!
Thanks so much Lauren! I really appreciate it! It is super exciting and I can’t wait to see how things work out!
Thank you for this Fruit of the Spirit post. I love looking for Free Bible printables and I’m so excited about using this one with my daughter and for church. I love your creativity! Keep up the great work.
I’m glad you can use it, Rosenda! Look for some new Bible-themed resources for kiddos in the coming weeks. I’m working on quite a few!
I can’t find the pdf to download the fruit of the spirit printables
Hi Sarah – Thank you for stopping by!
Click on the large picture of the chart. It will start the instant download. 🙂
Hi Lauren, just wanted to let you know that when you click on the image of the chart it doesn’t load. I’ve tried opening in firefox and chrome and neither one will open :/
Hi Katie – Thanks so much for letting me know. I’m having this issue with several of the older printables on my site and it’s taking me awhile to work through to fix them all.
This one is repaired, so you should be able to download it now.
Help, please! I can’t figure how to download printables!!! 🙂
Hello, I’ve tried several times to download the printables for the fruits of the spirit but I am unable to locate/print the spiritual gifts chart. Thank you so much for creating this and sharing it! I’m hoping to teach my young children this verse for the Valentine’s holiday 🙂 Thank you!
Hey Ashley! This is such a great devotional for young kids! I hope your little ones enjoy it!
Click on the very last image in the post. I made it easier to understand where to click. Sorry about that! 🙂
I’m trying to download the fruit but when I click the link it takes me back to the front page. can you help?
Hi Johnna! Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the post where it says ‘Download here’. Click the image and the download should start immediately. 🙂
Hope your little ones enjoy it!
I googled “child’s fruit of the spirit devotional” as a spur of the moment decision to start this for my 5 year old. We have a week to fill in. I was so happy to find that I was directed to your website because I already receive your weekly email and use so many of your resources!! Thank you so much for your time and efforts to help us Moms! You are doing God’s work.
Evelyn, it thrills me to read your comment this morning! Thank you for taking the time to leave it!
I love it when God just drops resources in my lap!
I hope you have a wonderful time working on it together. THANK YOU for being a reader at Mama’s!
(“You are doing God’s work.” Thank you for that. Sometimes this whole thing seems…difficult. I appreciate the encouragement!)
Hi there! I was trying to download the kid’s chore cards but instead it’s downloading the weekly, monthly, seasonal cleaning checklist. Could you please email me the chore cards?! Thanks so much!
Sorry, I had two websites open at the same time and accidentally submitted my question on the wrong page!
Oh I totally understand!! You ought to see how many tabs I usually have open! 😂
I can’t open the pictures to color or the basket
Hey Cathy! Make sure you’re using the latest (and free) version of Adobe Acrobat. It solves many of the pdf problems that you’re describing. 🙂
Hey! I’ve clicked on each photo and even the trackbacks section and it just redirects to the Raising Arrows which in return points back to your site for the printable links that don’t seem to work! PLEASE HELP!!! Thank you!!
Scroll all the way to the bottom of the post and click on the very last picture. The download should automatically start when you click on the last picture (it looks like a chart).
Thanks for stopping by!
