PREPARATION

Place each verse from Ephesians 6:13-18 on a separate business card or index card for each child in the class. You can use a simple graphics program to decorate each card with brightly colored designs.  

WHAT YOU WILL DO:

Distribute a complete set of verse cards to each child in class. Recite the verses together as a class. Allow the children to take the verse cards home so that they can memorize the verse. (Reward each child who can successfully recite the verse the following week.)

WHAT YOU WILL SAY:

Tell the children that God loves us very much. He also protects us in many ways. Did you know He even gave us armor! That's right. God gave us spiritual armor to protect us from evil. These verse cards will help us remember to put on our spiritual armor every day.
