Sunday School Craft: “Noah’s Ark”

Craft Idea for Sunday School

Bible passage: Genesis 7:1-5 “And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.  Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female. And Noah did according unto all that the Lord commanded him.”

Sunday School Craft: Decorate a paper plate to look like Noah’s ark and glue animals inside to represent the Great Flood.

Materials: Paper plates, markers/crayons, glue/tape, construction paper, scissors

1.Give each student 2 paper plates.
2.Have the students cut 1 paper plate in half.  Students can share with their neighbor so that both halves of the plate get used.  Each student should end up with 1 ½ paper plates.
3.Turn the whole paper plate right-side up, so that the scooped out part is facing up.
4.Students should color ½ of the whole plate to look like a boat.  Most students will want to color this part of the plate a solid brown.
5.Turn the ½ paper plate wrong-side up, so that the scooped out part is facing down.
6.Students should color the ½ plate they have to also look like a boat.
7.After both parts of the plates are colored, students should glue the ½ paper plate to the whole paper plate, so that both inside and out are brown like the ark.  There should be a space between the plates where the animals will fit later.
8.Students should take various colors of construction paper and draw or trace animal shapes, such as those found on the ark.
9.After drawing the animals, students should cut out the shapes and finish decorating them with markers or crayons.
10.When the animals are decorated, students should glue or tape them into the space between the two sides of the boat.  It should look like the animals are looking out over the edge of the boat.
11.Students can finish the undecorated half of the whole paper plate with blue for the sky, white for clouds, or with several colors for the rainbow that symbolizes God’s covenant with His people.
