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
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.

Son/Sun catchers combine three
power-full forces …LIGHT, God’s
word, and the cross of Christ. Linking
these three things in a child’s mind is a
very good thing. Each Son catcher
also links the power of the cross with
the power of the word…a bible and a
cross. For more Son Catchers visit:

Asking God to help his/her heart
understand the way the mirror is
helping his eyes?
Understanding the connection
between prayer and scripture is
critical. You can’t pray rightly
without the bible nor can we receive

Mirror Coloring Pages
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.
