Today the older kids made a Shield of Faith that could be displayed in the classroom. I know that oftentimes kids’ Sunday School crafts just get tossed in the garbage, so why not make them to be displayed at church?
Supplies: cardboard, utility knife, posterboard, printed Bible verses, scissors, Sharpies, paint, paintbrushes, paint palettes
1. Trace a shield shape onto a large piece of cardboard. If the cardboard is thin, you can laminate two pieces together by sandwiching them together with Elmer’s or wood glue, and pressing them with heavy weights.
2. Trace shield shape onto posterboard and cut out. Cut this into four equal quadrants.
3. Divide class into four groups. Each group gets a cut-out quadrant of the posterboard to put their Bible verse on. They can either write the verse on, or use the already typed verse.
4. Set out decorating supplies and let kids decorate their pieces.
5. Once the pieces are decorated, reassemble them on the cardboard shield and glue/tape in place.
6. Hang in prominent place to remind kids of their lesson on the Shield of Faith.
The verses we used were: Deuteronomy 29:9, 2 Samuel 22:26, Psalm 91:4 and Hebrews 11:1.
