Search the Scriptures- Color and make the bookmark- its something different can tell them to use it when they read scriptures as a family.

The Words of Christ- Do activity as is or use the scripture cut outs to make a fun necklace or bracelet- punch holes, string on yarn, even use fruit loops or straws for in between.

I Feel Reverent when I Read the Scriptures- Use as coloring page or make a mini booklet with other pictures mentioned here or draw your own.  Bring stickers for them to decorate the blank pages if you want.

The Power I Get Each Time I Read- I put this one in because I love the song, Scripture Power, but the bookmark can be fun then you can give them stickers to put over the boxes for fun.

The Scriptures Show the Way- Make scripture puppets! Tell the scripture story using the puppets (glue on a stick or straw) then let the kids take one home or make a few for all.
