• “I am a child of God” Plaque (Basic Requirements)

    I am a child of God,
    And he has sent me here,
    Has given me an earthly home
    With parents kind and dear.
    Lead me, guide me, walk beside me,
    Help me find the way.
    Teach me all that I must do
    To live with him someday.

    I am a child of God,
    And so my needs are great;
    Help me to understand his words
    Before it grows to late.
    Lead me, guide me, walk beside me,
    Help me find the way.
    Teach me all that I must do
    To live with him someday.

    I am a child of God.
    Rich blessings are in store;
    If I but learn to do his will
    I'll live with hime once more.
    Lead me, guide me, walk beside me,
    Help me find the way.
    Teach me all that I must do
    To live with him someday.

    I am a child of God.
    His promises are sure;
    Celestial glory shall be mine
    If I can but endure.
    Lead me, guide me, walk beside me,
    Help me find the way.
    Teach me all that I must do
    To live with him someday.

    For this activity we made "I am a child of God" plaques! Because the only thing we didn't have already (paper, glue, scissors...) or got for free (wood) was the "I am a child of God" di-cuts, each girl got to make a plaque for a total of $5! What you would need:

    • Wood (I used some wood that my parents had left over from building their house)
    • Scrapbook paper, colored paper
    • Ribbon, stickers, bows... whatever you would like to decorate them.
    • Glue
    • "I am a child of God" di-cut (my sister has a machine and made them for us. She charged us for the materials - $5. I'm sure you can buy them or just use letter stickers)
    • Scissors
    So at first each girl got a piece of wood. Then we had them pick out their scrapbook paper.


    Then they shaped the paper around the piece of wood, making creases in the paper to know where to cut the extra paper out of the corners.



    Then they glued the paper to the wood (it was actually MDF, which I think worked better for these). Then the girls picked out what colored paper they wanted, placed the "I am a child of God" di-cut onto the colored paper, then glued the colored paper onto the scrapbook paper.


    Then they glued their ribbon on, put some thumb-tacks on..... 
     

     AND TADA!



    We even had time left over for some of the girls to make a second one for girls who coudln't make it to the activity :)
