God Keeps Promises

God asked Noah to build a giant ark (boat) because He was going to flood the whole earth. Can you imagine the whole earth being under water? 

God made a special promise (called a covenant)  to Noah and everyone else on earth. Let’s find out what that promise was…

Noah was a good man who loved God and obeyed His rules. Noah was the only man left on earth who still obeyed and loved God. The other people were doing very bad things, disobeying God’s rules and making God very sad. God knew He had to stop the evil and so He asked Noah to do a special job for Him.

He told Noah to build a GIANT ark. Noah obeyed God and built the ark exactly as God told him to do. When Noah was finished with the ark God brought all the animals of the earth (two of each kind) to go on the ark with Noah and his family.

Once Noah and his family were safely inside God closed the door to the ark and sent the flood waters. It rained for 40 days and 40 nights. All the other people and animals on earth drowned in the flood.

After many months, dry land appeared once again.

When Noah and his family left the ark God made a promise to Noah and the people of earth to never flood the whole earth again. God put a rainbow in the sky as a symbol of this promise.

Memory Verse:
 “I will put my rainbow in the clouds to be a sign of my promise to the earth.” Genesis 9:13

Discussion Questions:
When you see a rainbow in the sky, what will it remind you of?

 

Why does God keep His promises to us?

 

How many days did it rain to flood the whole earth?

 

 Now let’s have some fun with a craft!
First you will need to down load and use these FREE printables for this Craft.
For the 2-D version (Great for toddlers and younger children)
For the 3-D version (Great for 4yrs and older)

The toddler version of this craft is fairly simple. Print out the printables above. Let the little ones color each page (When cutting out the animals they don’t have to be perfect; just cut them in a square or circle shape). Shown below is the ark my 2 year old colored. He had a lot of fun with it. :-) After they color all the items on the pages have an adult cut out the shapes (you can also have this already done to save time). Then assemble the pieces using tape or glue as shown below.

Now the 3-D version take a little bit more time and is better for older children, but it’s definitely worth the time spent! The kids will have a blast making this.

Start off by having the kids color their rainbows.

Here are a couple of the rainbows my kids colored. They enjoyed being creative with what colors to use in their rainbows….

Next let them color their boat pieces. They don’t all have to be brown. Let them get creative and color the boat whatever colors they want. My oldest son chose to color his boat in rainbow colors. :-)

Once all the pieces are colored, cut them out. Most of the kids 4 and older should be able to do this task by themselves but make sure there is an adult supervising.

Start by taking the “Ark Box” and folding along the dotted lines. Secure the tab to the other end with glue or tape. (Tape is easier and quicker to work with in my opinion).

Then fold the roof piece along the dotted line

Attached the roof to the box using tape like shown below. They may need a little help with this part.

Tape together the two boat sides, making sure that the door of the ark it cut out (be sure to leave one hinged side on the door).

Now this part can be a little tricky. Fold the tabs on the Boat Top piece. Attach tape to the tabs and attach it to the top edge of the boat sides. It doesn’t have to look perfect, and trust me it will probably be a bit uneven but that’s okay!

After that it’s pretty easy!! Attach the ark box to the top of the boat using tape (I put my tape on the inside of the box then pressed it down). Next have the kids color and cut out their animals. Attach the animals and rainbow to the ark as shown below…

  1. I absolutely love this Faith!!! And your kiddos are absolutely adorable! Pinning it for when Simon is a little older! (He just eats the crayons right now!) Thanks for sharing this with all of us!

    • Thanks so much Kelsey! Haha I completely understand the “eating crayons” stage. Joey (my 2yr old) just came out of that phase and it able to actually color instead of break them or eat them. :-) Thanks for the pin!

  2. Kim Adams Morgan says:

    Faith, what a wonderful activity for kids to do with their parents (or at church) and learn about Noah and God.

  3. I’m so glad I found your blog by way of Vanessa! I am a preschool teacher at Church and we actually are studying the rainbow and God’s promises all month! This will be the perfect craft on Sunday. I am following your blog :)

    • Barbie – I’m so glad you found me too! I also remember visiting your blog through FMF that Vanessa introduced me too! (Hopefully I’ll be able to join back in soon!) That’s awesome that you’re studying God’s promises this month and will be able to use this! It blesses my heart to hear these lessons and crafts are being used by others. :-) Thanks!!

  4. I really want to do this with the kids but I can’t get the 3D ark Botox and roof link to open… all others worked fine

  5. Donna Zellner says:
