1st Grade - March - Hide the Word - James 4:7-8 - Balsa Wood

"Submit yourself to God.  Resist the devil and he will flee from you.  Draw near to God and He will draw near to you." James 4:7-8

These balsa wood shapes are a new obsession of mine!  They come is all different shapes and sizes and are cheap! You can purchase them at Hobby Lobby. . Many shapes of wood are available, such as circles, hearts, stars, squares, peace signs and more.

Before class, buy the wooden shapes and gather fancy markers.  In class,  have the children write the verse on balsa wood.  You will want to note, the markers will usually run or bleed a little, so make sure the verse is short or there’s a lot of room. You need to make a sample before class so the kids can see the spacing.

The sample above uses glitter markers that resemble paint pens.  Before sending this home, you can affix magnets to the back or hot glue a ribbon loop at the top so the kids can hang their masterpiece!
