Bible Story: God Sent a Great Flood
Bible Text: Genesis 7:1-24
- Blue construction paper
- White, black and green paint
- Baby wipes for clean up
Step 1. Carefully paint the palm of each child’s hand with white paint and help each to make a good handprint on the blue construction paper.
Step 2. When the paint has dried a bit, guide the kids in using black paint to turn the handprint into a dove by adding wings, a beak and an eye.
Step 3. Finally, children can add an olive branch to the dove’s mouth using green paint. Students may want to add the words “Peace” or “Hope” to their painting as a reminder of what the dove symbolized to Noah and his family.
