Bible Story: Ezra Read the Law
Bible Text: Ezra 7:1—9:5
- Air dry clay
Step 1. Give each student a good amount of air dry clay and guide them in forming the clay into a stone tablet shape or into a scroll shape.
Step 2. Guide the children to use a pencil and “carve” (write) the Bible phrase, “The Joy of the Lord is my Strength” into the clay “tablets.” Younger children may need a simpler version. Once dry the children can display their art work to remind them of the importance of the word of God.
