    I want to make this for our VBS next week, but I can’t tell what’s written on the last four stryrofoam balls. thanks

      The last three are Love, Hope, Sin. The yellow ball isn’t clear enough to read but the word seems to end in a y and could be charity or honesty. You can try contacting the contributor At http://makeitfuncrafts.com/projects/colors-of-faith-snake/
