THE AMAZING SCARLET (OR CRIMSON) WORM… PLUS FREE POSTER

Have you heard the story about the scarlet (or crimson) worm? The female adheres herself permanently to a tree, lays her eggs protectively under her body; covers herself and her eggs with a scarlet dye; and literally gives her life to feed her young. A crimson spot is left on the branch that dries out in 3 days, then changes to white as it flakes off. This tiny insect is an amazing picture of our Lord Jesus Christ and His incredible love for us.

Free printable Bible Poster; Revelation 1:5; Jesus loved us and gave His life for us; Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto Him that loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood

    • (putting on my teacher hat…haha!) Learning IS so much fun, isn’t it? I love learning about God and all the wonderful things He has made for us, so much. Plus they can also be used as extra hints of ideas to send. Maybe a snippet for the younger children. Maybe print off the whole (or adapted) article for the older kids. Thanks for dropping by, Susan! :)
