Put off and Put on

One of the things that I enjoy with homeschooling is when a great idea hits you can just go with it. I don't remember what had happened that morning that made me decide that we needed a lesson on putting off and putting on but that idea came to me and so we got our Bibles. It was before Christmas and all Miss K had was her Bible story book which she brought to the table but it didn't have Colossians. She now has one and is very proud of her Bible. Yesterday at 6:00 am she had it open to Matthew and was going to read. Back to that Friday morning and the lesson on putting off and putting on.

We opened our Bibles to Colossians 3 and listed the things that we were to put off or away -- anger, wrath, malice, slander, etc. Then we listed the things that we are to put on -- kindness, humility, meekness, patience, etc.

We then talked about each word and decided if it was something we wanted to put on and if so, we taped it to ourselves. The ones that were put off were put in a garbage bag.

Miss K joined in the fun as well. She got lots of things put on.


I think it was a fun visual way to illustrate this passage. It did give us something to talk about for the next few days as we talked about something that we did and how that was putting on joy or serving.


  1. Great idea! I think my kids would like doing that, too.

  2. Great idea...maybe we should try it in Adult Sunday School class!
