“Clothed In Christ”

Colossians 3:5-17


1. One simple idea to express how what one wears show who they are is to visit your local dollar store and purchase different hats or outfit attachments for the children to dress up in and act out their chosen attire. (For instance, a fireman’s hat. The child can briefly explain how they know that it’s a fireman’s hat and act it out.) This can lead into the lesson about how Christian’s are to spiritually dress themselves. How what attitudes we wear identify us with or not with Christ.

2. Another idea would be to play Charades. List several occupations on strips of paper. Have a child choose one to act out. Give the class a chance to figure out what that occupation is. Then, you can lead into the lesson using the same method as noted above.

3. Using the idea of taking off and putting on, some classes may enjoy working with printable paper dolls. Clothing and accessories can also be printed out for the children to play dress up with the dolls. A good resource for this is:
