Here is an activity to continue your [tag]Bible study for Joshua[/tag] and the walls of Jericho. I have used this often with my younger [tag]Sunday school[/tag] students to reinforce the message of the lesson.
God and Joshua worked together to get the walls of Jericho to come down. Joshua had to lead the men who blew the horns. After the walls came down, Joshua had to lead the army in to take over the land. God made the walls tumble down.
When we work together with God, amazing things can happen. To remind us of that, we’re making our own “Jericho Horns” today.
Bible Study Activity: Jericho Horns
– construction paper, one sheet for each child
– glue sticks
– marker pens
– brown construction paper, maybe five sheets cut into little squares to make bricks.
Give each student a sheet of construction paper. You should have the word JOSHUA written in large letters at the top of each sheet, or show them how to do this if they are old enough.
The small brown squares are bricks of the walls of Jericho which they can glue on in a haphazard fashion (as if they are flying).
**Note to students: If they only glue down half of each brick, the unglued part might vibrate and add to the noise, depending on the type of paper used, once the horn is made.
Have each student roll his paper lengthwise but unevenly, so that near the mouth, there is only a very small hole, and near the opposite end there is a bigger hole. They can blow through the horns.
Sometimes we think of being strong as having lots of muscles. But one of the most important things about true strength is that true strength sees the good in everyone. A strong heart is more important than a strong body!
