Monday Memory Verse: Colossians 1:3

Colossians 1:3

In each pack there is an A4 poster with the verse on it. This can be printed on white paper or card stock, laminate if you wish, and place in an area in which it will be read quite frequently like: on the fridge door in your child’s bedroom on the back of the toilet door in your ‘school room’ or play room To help your child, you could get them to look at the poster, read it 3 times and then get them to turn around so that their back is facing the poster.
