The Bible Banner is a part of the FREE Bible Study Tools for kids. Learn more about Help Your Kids Learn & Love the Bible and get your FREE Bible Study Resources here.
- Print these duplex (double-sided) and have them flip on the long side.
- Trouble printing?
- You may need to download the FREE Adobe Acrobat Reader.
- Also, be sure to save your printable to your computer and print from there (rather than from your phone or tablet).
- I recommend printing on white cardstock so the banners will be more durable and they’ll stand up. This is my very favorite cardstock: Neenah Premium Cardstock.
- You’ll need to cut the banners out so you can glue them onto your ribbon. I cut around them, leaving a small white margin. I don’t suggest trying to cut on the line.
Supplies Needed to Make Your Banner with Bible Verses
You’ll need a few supplies to make the truth about the Bible banner. You may have a few of these items already. If not, these are all fairly inexpensive and will serve you well for multiple projects. Make sure you get ribbon that’s 1/4 or 1/2 inch wide! I used 5/8″ inch wide ribbon, and it was just a little too wide to fold into the banner.
- 1/4 – 3/8″ ribbon (12 feet)
- Hot glue gun and a glue stick
- White cardstock
- A scissors
- Your Bible banner flags
Assembling Your Bible Verse Banner
1) Print Your Bible Banner Flags and Cut Them Out.
This is a double-sided printable, so you’ll want to print it duplex with the fold on the long side.
Note: You’ll want to cut out all of your labels in advance. Your older kids can help with this task. If you need more labels, you can just print extra sheets.
2) Fold the Truth about the Bible Banner Flags.
Each Bible daily devotion printable flag has a dotted line across the top. Fold the banner on the dotted line away from the decorative side toward the side that has the daily devotion for your kids. Do this with each of your 24 banners.
3) Measure and Cut Your Ribbon
Fold your ribbon in half and tie a small loop so you can attach it to your wall or mantle. Fold each half in half again (subtracting your end trails and bow (if you added ribbon for that). Make a small loop at each quarter length point and at each end. At this point your ribbon will be divided into four equal sections with a decorative tail on each end.
I used small hooks to attach our banner to the mantle through the small loops I tied.
4) Lay Out Your Bible Verse Banner Flags
5) Glue Your Bible Banner Flags to Your Ribbon
You will use a hot glue gun to attach your flags to your ribbon. This is a job for you, the adult, as the hot glue is really hot! I used a craft stick to push down the flaps over the glue–it worked well, so you can do that if you’d like.
I found the process worked best when I glued the ribbon to the cardstock under the flap, then glued the flap over the ribbon onto the cardstock beneath.
Note: I’m using 3/8-inch wide ribbon in this picture. Use 1/4 to 3/8-inch wide wire edge ribbon. Again, be careful gluing your banners to the ribbon.
Display Your Bible Banner with the Daily Devotions for Kids Facing In
Take a picture of your Easter banner and share it on social media with the hashtag #GenBible or #BibleRoadTrip. You can tag me as well! I’d love to reshare it. I’m on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Turn over one banner a day to reveal that day’s Scripture reading and daily devotion. Have your kids help you locate the devotional Scriptures in the Bible. Take turns reading a sentence each and discuss what you learned about Jesus that day!
Help Your Kids Learn and Love the Bible
You want your kids to learn and love the Bible.
You want to teach the Bible…
As parents, we deeply desire the best for our kids. We look for the right schools, we make them eat right and exercise, and we get them involved in extracurricular activities. We take our job as parents seriously.
But are we also putting our time and energy into
teaching them the Bible? Giving them the life-changing, soul-nourishing words of Scripture is not only doable, it’s an essential part of parenting kids for Jesus. And the good news is, studying God’s Word as a family doesn’t have to be difficult!
2 Timothy 2:15, ESV, says:
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,
a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
Our job, as parents who love Jesus, is to help our kids become approved workers, unashamed and rightly handling the word of truth.
The good news? Teaching the Bible isn’t hard. Your family can learn the Bible together.
…and you can!
