  2. 2. The secret in folding the cross as a box is to slip a grain of rice or pea inside just before gluing the box closed. The children imagine they, like the rice grain, are inside the box… surrounded by the “Cross of Christ”...and that there is SAFETY in God's word..“. Then they read one of more of the six verses on the outside of the box. Click the image for complete instructions The lesson in folding the cross as a wallet Is to suggest to children that "God's riches at Christ's expense" are always available...that no matter their need their FIRST thought should be of prayer and scripture...not money. Having the wallet in their pocket all through the week is a great reminder. The lesson in cutting out the Scripture Cross as is, is to remind children that without the power of the cross the Bible would be only words.Suggest they put the cross in their home near where they sleep.

  9. 9. I once saw a six year old call his shot from fourty feet away (just a few feet shy of half the length of a basketball court) and make it The openings on our little game board are just a little over an inch wide… much smaller than a basketball hoop This simple game and others like it can give a child a whole new way of “Aiming at Life”. The lessons I learned were that even a six year old can be very very close to God and that God’s arm is not short…he can work in the midst of a game. Motivation by Marbles It is one thing to have the marble in your hand and to see the target clearly and another thing entirely to make the shot. The same is true of the Christian life. In Marbles most of us rely on our own strength and hand eye coordination. In the life of faith we must learn to rely on Jesus to lead us surely from one shot to the next. All he asks is that we study scripture and trust him with our whole heart. Reading Bible verses is like seeing the goal. Actually shooting the marble is giving it our best and trusting God….and then…if we miss…praying and doing it all over again. For six free marble games visit. ASP
