Armor of God Snack Craft

Posted by Lori:
Since I couldn't find an "Armor of God" snack craft anywhere, I decided to make one up to use during VBS.  (Read here about how I taught the lesson and to see activities about the lesson.) It turned out really cute and the kids had fun making it and eating it!  During our Wednesday night open house, I made this sample to show what the kids would be making the next day during the "Armor of God" lesson.  As a precaution, I hot-glued everything down to the plate!  I also made the little notes about what each item represented.  During the lesson the next day, I explained each item to the kids. 


From top to bottom....Items needed per person:

Helmet of Salvation: One triangle-shaped cracker
Face of person:  One round cracker with squirt cheese eyes and mouth
Breastplate of Righteousness:  One square cracker
Belt of Truth:  One strip of a fruit by the foot (roll up type snack)
Feet ready from the Gospel of Peace:  2 circus peanuts
Sheild of Faith:  One Pringles potato chip
Sword of the Spirit:  One Pringles Stix Crackers


  1. Thanks so much for this snack idea! I direct VBS for my church and this will be perfect for the army theme this year. I've found it hard to find resources with a military theme, so I was excited when I came across your blog!
    Thanks for posting!

  2. You're welcome! I'm glad this will help you! It's a great theme. The children will really enjoy it. Thanks for stopping by and for your comment! Lori from 3CherryCokes
