We'll be making bracelets from the powerful verse "All things are possible when you believe in God." Printed on glossy photo paper, I cut these into strips and will use a white label to close them around the wrists of the children. You could use stickers or tape.
I'll use this as the closing activity, after they have heard the re-telling of the Gospel, and have unscrambled the words of the memory sentences (see the Great Lent Lesson Chart).
A special bonus is that these memory bracelets help to reinforce the message with their parents when they return home. You could adapt this for other special verses from Holy Scripture as well.
"Kali dynami" as we finish the second half of the Great Fast.
