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.

To make this simple wreath you will need

Paper plates with the centre cut out

Leaf shapes cut from sugar paper (construction paper)

Petits fours paper cases

Buttons/Tissue paper

Glue (preferably PVA as everything will stick better)

Glue spreaders

To make

Begin by gluing leaves to the paper plate ring.

Add the petits fours cases to make flowers

Add buttons/tissue paper to the centre of the petits fours cake cases (optional – no need to use these if younger children are making the wreaths as buttons can be a chocking hazard)

Note – separate the petits fours cake cases before the children begin or you will end up with a sticky cake case mess!
