Introduce today’s activity: Today we are learning how Jesus used the Bible to help him say “no” to the devil. Show the children your craft. Read the Scripture Memory Verse written in the pickle. Say: Just as we need bread we also need other nourishing types of foods such as meat and cheese. Jesus knows that the Bible is the best food for our souls. Just as it is important to eat food each day to stay healthy, it is also important to read the Bible every day to stay healthy in our souls. Today we will make hero sandwiches to remind us that true heroes are nourished by God’s word!



Hero Sandwich from Jesus Defeats Satan: Lesson 1 (page 5, & 16).
On pickle: Jesus answered, "It is written: Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God." Matthew 4:4

Preparation:

1. Print out the pickles sheet on green paper. Each child will need only one pickle.
2. Make a slice of bread template out of cardboard. Trace and cut two slices of bread from brown construction paper for each child. You can also use sponges or foam to look more like bread.
3. Make an assortment of “sandwich items” as follows:

A. To make cheese, cut 4" squares from yellow construction paper.
B. To make bologna, cut a 4" circle from pink construction paper.
C. To make salami, cut a 4" circle from red construction paper.
D. To make turkey, cut a 4" circle from beige construction paper.
E. To make olive loaf, cut a 4" circle from pink construction paper. Cut four 1" circles from green construction paper.
F. To make lettuce, cut a 4" lettuce leaf shape from green construction paper.
G. To make tomato slices, cut a 3" circle from red construction paper. Using a red marker, draw an inner circle, sections and squiggly lines throughout the inner circle.

NOTE: Cut approximately three sandwich items for each child.

4. Make a sample of the craft for the children to see.

Instructions:

1. Introduce today’s activity: Today we are learning how Jesus used the Bible to help him say “no” to the devil. Show the children your craft. Read the Scripture Memory Verse written in the pickle.
