Noah and the Ark - Toddler Bible Lesson and Craft

Abby wasn't feeling well this morning so we stayed at home while the rest of the family went to church.  Being the third child, it's not often that she has my full attention, and it's especially rare to sit down together to work on a lesson and craft.  This morning I was glad to have that opportunity with her.  She chose the story of Noah and the Ark.  Here's what we did:

Noah and the Ark
Genesis 6:5-9:17

Memory Verse
"God remembered Noah and all the animals with him on the ark...and the waters went down."  -Genesis 8:1-2 (simplified)

Lesson Focus--The Rainbow
The rainbow is a sign of God's promise to never again flood the whole earth with water.

Readiness Skills
-Using scissors
-Color identification
-Following directions

We read the story from Abby's picture Bible.  We said and sang the memory verse together (it was a review for her) and then we got to work on our craft.

 I drew an arc on each piece of colored construction paper.  Then I helped Abby use the scissors to cut along the lines.

Abby identified each color as we went along.  She also practiced following directions as I told her the order in which she needed to glue the arcs on the paper.

 Proud of her work.  :)

What's your favorite Bible lesson and craft for little people?
