Similar to the salvation bracelet, this child evangelism idea is based on the same colors as the Wordless Book. This fun-filled gospel presentation uses paper airplanes to share the message of salvation with children. (These Gospel Planes fly really well!)
2 free printables are provided – a full color version and an outlined version for kids to color. A detailed guide on how to explain salvation to a child is included below.
When Jesus taught his first disciples, he used things they were familiar with, like sheep, fish and bread. We can follow in Jesus’ footsteps by using items that children are familiar with to share with them the gospel message.
Folding and flying paper airplanes is popular with children. Use this activity as a variation to the popular child evangelism tool – the Wordless Book – to share the message of salvation with children.

The Wordless Book was first used by Charles Spurgeon in 1866, and it has become a very popular tool used all over the world to present the gospel to children.
This book of colored pages is not only extremely easy to use, it’s also very effective in communicating the message of salvation through Jesus Christ.
