This was another of our weather themed stories at toddler group. It’s from Luke 8. It’s a great story to tell – lots of drama and Jesus sleeping!
This craft is the lake on a paper plate – square paper plates with two shades of blue tissue paper. Round plates would be just as good but they need to be a bit sturdy. The boat is cut from card (done beforehand) and has a tab so it can be glued in place but still stand up. The label says ‘Jesus stopped the storm’.
It’s a very effective craft that’s quite easy to make.
There are a couple of ideas for telling this story here and here for toddlers and older children.
There is a page of mini arks all ready for downloading and printing here Basic Noah’s Ark (x 8)
We did this craft a couple of weeks ago when we were doing Bible Stories on the theme of weather.
We used tissue paper, crepe paper, cellophane wrap, cotton wool and paper clouds.
Noah’s ark – drawn onto wall paper (found in the church storage cupboard!!) The animals are stickers, the water is tissue and sugar paper. Very easy to set up and you can always display it afterwards.
