Initial Poster Craft

Let your students know that just as God had a plan for Bible people, God has a plan for each of them, too. Give each child a 4- x 5-inch piece of poster board, a pencil, glue, scissors, a paper clip, glitter or colored sand, and an empty shirt box or shoe box.

Have the child draw his initial in thick block style to fill the poster board. Let him cut out the initial, print his name on the back, and glue or tape a paper clip to the back for a hanger. Have him coat the front with a thin layer of glue. Let him sprinkle glitter or colored sand on the initial to cover it completely, then shake the excess into the box. (If you have time, let each child make 2-3 initials—one for his first, middles, and last names.) Talk about how God has a special plan for each person. Encourage your students to hang their initials where they will be a reminder that God can use each person to tell others about Jesus.
