4th Grade - Hide the Word - November - Door Hanger - Colossians 3:9-10

 This is an in-class activity that can also be done for basically any memory verse.  Before class, die-cut door hangers.  We used the Ellison door hanger die.  You could also purchase foam door hangers at Hobby Lobby or order Magic Scratch door hangers from Oriental Trading.  You will also need to gather doo-dahs to glue onto the door hanger.  We are quite fond of Hobby Lobby's glitter foam shapes! :)  You could do this on white paper, but using black paper adds an extra "wow" factor for the kids.  If you use black paper, then gather gel pens or metallic markers.  Silver Sharpies work really well!

In class, let the kids write the words to the verse on the door hanger.  Make sure to have a sample so that they can see the spacing for the words.  After it is written, let them stick on some doo-dahs to fancy it up!
