5th grade - Hide the Word - October - Romans 12:3

“For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.” Romans 12:3 

This is another of our new loves... canvas!!  There are two kinds of canvases that you can buy.  At Michael’s they sell flat canvas boards in various sizes, like this, in a value pack.  There are normally 5 8x10 canvases for $7, but with a coupon, it was $4.50.  You can also get various sizes of wood-mounted canvases.  They come 2 for $5 before your coupon for the 4x4 size.  We have found that the flat canvas is better for kids to write on.  With the wood-mounted canvas, the canvas "gives" with the pressure of the pen and it is hard to write on.  Plus, the flat canvases are much cheaper! :)

The October example is to make a snaked verse.  Since the key concept of the verse is humility, we wrote “HUMILITY” big down the middle and made the verse fit around the key word letters in a snaking fashion.  This is the April verse.  It is simply written on the canvas with colored sharpies.   
 As with any project, the kids will like it even more if the medium is special... gel pens, Sharpies, glitter markers, metallic pens.
You can hot glue ribbon to back to make a hanger, by gluing one end of the ribbon to each top corner and tying a bow in the middle. These can also be displayed on an easel.  You can also paint with acrylic paint or stamp with stamp pads.
