5th Grade - May - Hide the Word - 1 Corinthians 15:57-58

“Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:58-59 

Bring to class: baby wipes, paint, sponge brush, one piece of card stock per child.  In class, have each child sit in a chair while you sit on the floor.  Have them take off sock and shoe and show you on the paper where they want their footprint.  Teacher paints bottom of foot with a foam brush.  Then firmly place foot on the floor, making sure to press on each toe.  Carefully lift foot and wipe off with baby wipe. Then give the child another baby wipe to get in all the nooks and crannies of their foot to get all the paint.  Have a worksheet or other quiet activity for rest of class to while painting the feet.  The paint dries very quickly.  

As for writing the verse, for this sample, we wrote the verse beside the footprint.  You can also write the verse around the foot, in the shape of the foot.  Once the paint has dried, use a pencil to lightly trace around the foot.  Then write the verse on the pencil lines.  Make sure to have a good eraser and a sample.  It is tricky to figure out the spacing of the words.  Erase the pencil line before sending home.  

You could also do the footprint in the middle of the card stock and have the kids write the verse in a Sharpie OVER the footprint, like words in a book.

Depending on the amount of time you have to do this, it may take two class sessions to complete.  Once it is complete, put it in a Dollar Tree frame.  It will hang in that house for years and years and remind the whole family of God's Word!
