I am still going through the Jesus Storybook Bible with my preschool Sunday school class. We took a little detour during Christmas and read the sections pertaining to Jesus’ birth. (I didn’t post about it, but last Sunday we made king’s crowns for the story of the wise men.)
Now we are going back to the Old Testament. The craft I want to share with you today is one that we did a couple of months ago. However, I am just now getting around to posting about it.
We read the story of Joshua and the battle of Jericho. I really wasn’t feeling overly creative, but I realized that the point of these crafts isn’t to impress all of you. Sorry. 🙂 The real point of these crafts is to help the children remember the Bible story we learned.
So, I gave the children a piece of paper and had them color it however they wanted. Then, we rolled them up and taped them in the shape of a cone.
We marched around the city of Jericho (a table) seven times and then blew our horns. Well, my little girl tried to eat her horn, but she was happy to play along.
Anyway, the walls (blocks) came tumbling down when we blew our horns and gave a shout.
The kids had a lot of fun and I think they remembered the story because we acted it out.
