This simple craft is easy and effective. It can be used for any story where there is a boat.

You need:

Paper plate, tissue paper squares, card or a lollypop stick for the mast, patterned paper for the sail, cellotape, blue waves made from card or construction paper.

In the Bible A-Z series we used the story of Jesus stilling the storm for the letter Q – the disciples ask a question ‘Who is this that even the wind and waves obey him?’ After you have made the boat the children can use it to retell the story.
