Sword of the Spirit Craft


When you teach the Sword of the Spirit to your children, you can make a simple cardboard sword. All you need is cardboard, a razor blade (or knife), and silver spray paint. To make it more fancy, you can use black acrylic paint, fake jewels, and a hot glue gun.


First cut a sword shape out of cardboard. I drew it with pencil first. You can use a ruler to get the sides of the sword straight.


Spray paint the sword silver on one side. Let it dry a couple of hours. Then spray paint the other side. After drying a couple of hours, the kids can paint the hilt of the sword with black acrylic paint. Let dry before hot gluing fake jewels to it. (You can also use white school glue to attach the fake jewels.)


Enjoy your finished Sword of the Spirit. Read about the armor of God in Ephesians 6: 10-17. The Sword of the Spirit is the Word of God, and it’s our only offensive weapon against sin in our lives.

For the word of God is quick and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 KJV
