3rd Grade and 4th Grade - Hide the Word - Glow in the Dark - Romans 3:23 and Ephesians 4:26-27

We love glow in the dark paint!!! Not only is it fun for the kids, but the WOW factor is HUGE!!!  So whenever we see a verse about glory or darkness or light, we immediately think glow paint!

Before class, gather lots of Q-tips, black 9x12 construction paper and white crayons.

This is one of those crafts that can be a disaster waiting to happen if not done properly.  The top photo is properly!  At the beginning of class, have the kids write the parts in white. Have a sample for them to copy so that they can see the spacing.  They can even draw a line where they will eventually paint the glow words.  Later in class, go back with the Q-tips and glow paint and fill in the blanks.
 This is a sample of a disaster!! When trying to do all the words in glow paint it gets WAY too big and takes WAY too long!  Yes, it looks ultra-cool, but it is not very practical to do in class! :)
