So, because I’m a crazy over-achiever or maybe a perfectionist or something I’ve decided to completely write and design my own Bible study curriculum that goes through the whole thing in 2 years for my Sunday School and homeschool. More or less. Well, this past week in our Sunday school class was Noah as we went through our Genesis Sunday School lessons, so of course we had to make a Noah’s ark craft.
Noah’s ark craft supplies
individual milk cartons (or in our case orange juice), floral foam* (can be found at the dollar store or Michael’s), brown acrylic paint* (though if you’re doing 24 of them brown spray paint* is much faster, just don’t do it outside on a windy day, or you’ll end up with brown grass, as I found out with my blue grass from the Jonah project), Noah’s ark printout, sharp knife
Noah’s ark craft instructions
1. Force your kids to drink 14 cartons of orange juice in 2 days, then cut out one side of your ark, so it looks like a boat.
2. Paint your ark. I know, normally I’d show me painting, but I didn’t think to take pictures until afterwards.
3. Cut your floral foam to fit inside your carton. This is a very exact science which will require shaving off bits and pieces and then shoving it into your ark.
And, it is very messy.
4. Color the printout and cut out each of the figures. Then tape them to toothpicks and put them in the ark.
Now set your ark adrift on the ocean. And look forward to the squeals of delight from your kids. Yes, that is a mandatory step.
So, I made 24 of these for my class including the sample (I pre-painted them, they colored the pictures). We used every single one of them. No joke.
