Coloring pages are a great way to end a Sunday School lesson. They can serve as a great take home activity. Or sometimes you just need to fill in those last five minutes before the end of class.

“…and having put on the breastplate of righteousness.” Ephesians 6:14
- Print the templates. (Template) The pages marked A are for an older child. The ones marked B are for a younger child.
- Cut out the templates.
- To assemble the breastplate glue together the template pieces.
- For extra strength glue the assembled breastplate onto one side of a grocery paper bag. Cut it out of the paper bag.
- Cut out the half oval template and trace it onto 2 or 3 different colors of construction paper.
- Cut them out and glue them onto the assembled breastplate, starting from the bottom.
- Cut out the neck strap pieces and then glue each piece onto a sheet of cardstock for strength.
- Assemble the neck strap, cutting each piece to the desired length. (As shown in the picture at the bottom.)
- Add Velcro to the beck strap and onto the breastplate to hold it in place. This makes it removable. You can also use yarn and a one hole punch if you choose not to use the neck strap.
I have included the word “Righteousness” in case your kiddo wishes to place it along the chest area of the breastplate.
The armor of God described in the book of Ephesians is a popular theme for Sunday School lessons and Vacation Bible Schools. Kids not only like making the armor, but they enjoy putting it on and playing around with it.
This past week I decided to come up with my own version of the armor of God. For the next six days I will be posting crafts on the complete armor of God. Each day will bring a different part of the armor. I’m sure your kiddos will love them.
“10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.” Ephesians 6:10-11
If you happen to have a Sunday School or Vacation Bible School armor of God theme and you wish to send me pics of your kiddos making or wearing the armor, I’d be glad to put them on my blog.
