If colouring is more your thing, then you might like my post for Feast of Mercy with a colouring activity.
This craft uses the following quote :
“O SON OF MAN! My majesty is My gift to thee, and My grandeur the token of My mercy unto thee. That which beseemeth Me none shall understand, nor can anyone recount. Verily, I have preserved it in My hidden storehouses and in the treasuries of My command, as a sign of My loving-kindness unto My servants and My mercy unto My people.”
You can choose any quote you like and use the website generators to produce lots of exciting activities like colouring pages and posters.

Spirals makes me dizzy!
This Spiral word art is from the site Festisite . This site allows you to make stuff , like logo maker, word cloud , posters, traffic signs and more.
The image above is the spiral image we will use to make the card but get creative and use it as you choose.
For instance, show the letter “M” for “Mercy” and have the kids look for and circle all the “M’s” in this spiral.
I “HEART” this
The next image is a word cloud using the quote “O Sone of Man” from above. To make a word cloud yourself, visit the site Festisite, Typing your quote, and its is that simple.
The wave image below, uses the same quote as the other images above , and is available as a PDF. The word search puzzle on the other hand is from another site called Discovery Education
