Footprint Placemat

Monday: Footsteps Placemat
Elementary Lesson: Two Obedient Men (Caleb & Joshua): We should trust and obey God.
Memory Verse: 1st John 2:5
Preschool Lesson: TBA
Age Groups:
  • elementary
  • preschool
  • teens
Supplies Needed:
  • heavy paper (preferably 11x17)
  • writing and coloring utensils
  • clear Contact paper
Each child gets one sheet of the paper. Show them how to center their foot on the paper so that the whole foot is on the paper. Have them get with a partner and trace one another's feet (or you can have them trace their own, especially in the older age groups; for preschool, an adult can help). Allow the older children to add toenails and other details.
Once the shape is traced, let them color in the foot shape. The older age groups should write the day's memory verse on the placemat, either around the edge or in the footprint. (Lines may need to be drawn for the younger children to write on.) If they like, and have space and time, they can also emblazon the Follow the Footsteps slogan on the placemat.
Help them laminate their placemats with the clear Contact paper. (It may be enough to laminate the front side and folder over the edges.)
