Wordless Lapbook

January 15, 2008 at 11:09 am (Uncategorized)

This is the easiest and most important lapbook we have ever done!   We were introduced to the concept of the Wordless Book  when my oldest was little.  The basic concept to take 5 pieces of paper black, red, white, gold and green.  Each of the pieces of paper helps to explain the gift of salvation.  The great thing is it does it it terms easy enough for a child to understand.

So I wanted to make a Wordless Lapbook with my 2 little ones.  I am always looking for opportunities to talk with my kids about salvation and this is such a simple way of doing it that even my 4 year old can grasp the concepts.  The real treasure of this lapbook is discussing all the meanings and planting the concepts in the heads of my little ones.

Here is the cover:


Inside we made a 5" X 5" booklet out of each color.


Inside each of the booklets we put the Bible verse that explains that color.

We also included a little ABC of Salvation Booklet.

Here is the front:

Here is what you see when you lift the flaps.  We printed the Bible verses that back up the ABC’s on the front and included them under the flaps.

All of the info we used in this lapbook is below.  Please feel free to use it if you would like to make one.  These would be excellent to make with a Sunday School Class, Awana group, VBS or etc.

Black = Sin

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of god. 

On our own we fall short of the perfection of God.  Sin, or the bad things we do, cause us to live in darkness away from God.


Red = Blood

1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.

 

It is through the sacrifice Jesus made by dying on the cross that we are saved from our sins.  Because Jesus blood was spilled for us we can live for eternity with Jesus in Heaven.

 

 

White = Pure

 

Psalms 51:7 “ …Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow”

 

Jesus makes us as clean and as white as snow!  If we accept Jesus as our savior God no longer sees our sins! 

 

 

Yellow = Heaven

 

John 14:2 "In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.

 

In heaven the streets are paved with gold!  The Bible tells us Jesus is preparing a place for us in heaven to be with Him.

Green = Growth

 

2 Peter 3:18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.

 

Green reminds of things that grow.  Grass, trees and plants are green.  They all grow when they are given the proper food, water and light.  We can grow like those plants by reading God’s Word, praying and obeying God’s laws. 

 

 

Here are the ABC’s of Salvation to print and include in the lapbook.  One we used for the outside and the other  we used inside.
