Craft: Tower of Babel
This will be a craft for older children because it involves some more advanced cutting but I think the students would enjoy doing it. You could also add cotton balls stretched out to the top if you want to add clouds. If you would like to do this craft, the pdf attached has the spiral verse as well as the brick pattern paper. If you would like this paper printed in color please email kpiwko@brentwoodbaptist with how many sheets you need by Thursday the 26th.
Object Lesson: Tower
Grab a set of large cardboard blocks. If the children are old enough to write, give each child a sticky note and a pencil. If they do not know how to write, you can let them come up with the ideas while you write. Writing one idea per sticky note, have the kids write one thing that separates us daily from God OR a way that we attempt to make a name for ourselves. As they write an idea on the sticky note, have them stick it to one block. As they finish writing one idea per block, let each child add the block to build a tower.
Activity: Marshmallow Tower
Have the children use mini marshmallows and toothpicks to see who can build the biggest tower.
