Those markers came off on our hands if we even looked at them! And soap did not effect it! The shoes would have been better if I'd just made little rectangles, but I told my helpers to trace their feet, and then when they cut them out, they cut along the foot line. So when we went to punch holes to string them, it was a very narrow space, and they ended up not being very comfortable. But I think they were still thrilled to make them. My camera died on me today, so I don't have any pics of the helmet and sword. They were really cute too.
One of the games they played was to "fight" the youth, who were representing the devil. The kids had their shields, and the youth threw soft sponge water balls at them. So the cool part was that whenever the kids shouted out the bible verse, the "devil" had to back up. I think it was such an effective way to teach them the importance of reading and memorizing Bible verses.
