Putting on the Armor of God

This week's lesson in Come Follow Me talks about putting on the armor of God.  This would be simple to incorporate into singing time using Susan Fitch's illustrations!

Charity shared the idea HERE on the Primary Music Leaders FB group.  If you don't want to draw your own, you can purchase Susan Fitch's illustrations HERE or she has a free printable HERE (but the armor isn't removable - so not sure if that would work).

Just print off a child (or more!) to fit on a full sheet of paper and the corresponding armor.  I'd recommend printing on card stock, cutting out and laminating.  **UPDATE:  The files you receive from Susan Fitch need to be adjusted so if you purchase the clip art, leave a comment with your email address (or contact me via my "Contact Me" tab) and I'll send you the new file I created so it will work! I just don't want to infringe on Susan's copyrighted material, otherwise I'd just share the file here.

In singing time, quickly reference the scripture in the Come Follow Me lesson HERE then add songs to the back of each of the armor pieces (after laminating so you can re-use it if you like!).  You can review songs for your program or sing songs that correlate to some of the answers listed in the curriculum:
  • Studying the Scriptures: Search, Ponder and Pray p. 109
  • Serving Others: A Happy Helper p. 197
  • Praying: A Child's Prayer p. 12
  • Obeying: Quickly I'll Obey p. 197
  • Attending Church: The Chapel Doors p. 156
  • Keep the Commandments: Keep the Commandments p. 146
If you have more suggestions, leave a comment!  You could also leave some of the armor blank and have the kids come up with ideas and related songs.

Such a cute idea! I am not sure how to print Susan Finch's artwork for the boy to be a full page since the boy and all the armor are all on the same page in the file. I am probably missing something easy LOL! Any suggestions?

I suppose she designed them to be a printable on a sheet of paper. Which child do you want? I'm assuming you purchased the clipart so I won't be infringing on her copyright. I'll re-work the image in Photoshop and email you the file. Maybe I'll get in contact with Susan and see if I can just share the file for everyone.

I am in the same situation as the others who purchased the armor of God paper doll artwork from Susan Finch but would like to print it separately. Would you mind helping me as well? My email is gabriella.nelson624@gmail.com.

Hi Guys this is super late notice, but here's another Armor of God from Gospel grab bag. I don't know if these are able to be printed separately either tho? https://www.gospelgrabbag.com/family-home-evening-2/handout-activities/cart
