First Grade - 1 John 4:4 - June - Hide the Word

See the sample here of the glow in the dark paint project. The verse is different, but the idea is the same. Please be sure you don't have the children paint every single word. That doesn't work well and will make everyone frustrated!

Here is a photo of the toilet paper tubes, also called the cylinder shuffle.
