Pinterest Pick 3 August: Armor of God

I am joining the Pinterest Pick 3 Linky hosted by Lisa over at PAWSitively Teaching and Marissa over at Inspired Owl's Corner! Every month on the 3rd, bloggers can link up their top 3 Pinterest picks of the month.

This month, I am pinning three ideas for our yearly theme, The Armor of God. I am so excited for this theme since students will be able to connect well with the visuals. It also ties into our newly chosen mascot, the Knights, and my classroom theme, Minecraft.

Check out my entire Religion Pinterest board!
I am always looking for ways to help students become more familiar with God's Word. Since we are learning about the Sword of the Spirit, I love how this Draw Your Sword game associates with the Armor of God theme. The bright and colorful "swords" make for a great addition to the classroom!
I think these healthy snacks are a great way to connect the Armor of God with tangible items to make this lesson kinesthetic. I would change of few of them - string cheese for the belt of truth, cauliflower helmets of salvation, and Triscuit shields of faith. I might also change the shoes of peace to cherry tomatoes since I think canned fruit doesn't really fit into the snack. The concept is great!

A few years ago, someone created a castle theme for Vacation Bible School. I love these hallway decorations to welcome students. I could hang them in front of my room or ask my colleagues if they would like join in. What a majestic entrance!
