Puppets – God told Noah to save pairs of animals in his ark but we only have one of each animal! Can you help us complete the pairs?! Or, can you make your own Noah and his ark?! You could make yours into puppets, like we have, and then act out the story of Noah and the ark!
Characters – Why not make your own Adam, Eve and snake characters to help explain the story of temptation?!
Praying – Mix praying with craft by making a prayer wheel or prayer sticks
Seasonal – Have a go at making an Easter garden or Christmas christingle.
Bible Cards – Create cards around the people you can find in the Bible to help get to know them more.
