A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. Proverbs 15:1
For one of the projects for this verse, we have the children do a "verse poster." With a verse poster, you can do any number of projects. At various ages, we have children outline or circle key words, decorate key words with glitter or real objects (see pics below), or decorate the edges of the verse poster. There are so many things to do with a verse poster!! We will keep posting pictures of verse posters and things to do with them, so click on the "verse poster" label below for more ideas!
This specific verse had two key parts we wanted to drive home, gentle and harsh. We decided to attach real objects to the verse poster for this verse. We used sand paper for the "harsh" and cotton balls for "gentle."
In my experience, it was easiest to glue the cotton balls on after the cotton balls had been pulled apart, then gently re-rolled into loose cotton strips. i also began the project tearing sand paper, but found that cutting it with sciscors made the word more readable. The outcome may be different for finer grit sand paper. Elmer's bottle glue was very helpful.
