David and Goliath

Some of the Following Crafts come from the Free Sunday School Lesson for Children - "David Take a Dare "

"The Battle is the LORD's!" Wall Hanging

The Battle is the Lords David and Goliath Bible Craft for Sunday School on www.daniellesplace.comBefore class print out the pattern onto pretty colors of cardstock (heavy paper), (Pattern available to members only) and cut them out.

Bring in some small smooth river rocks, and let your children each pick out five rocks. As they try to decide which ones they would like, tell them that the person in the story had to pick out five, smooth stones also. And that they will find out how he used them at the end of the story.

When a child has picked five stones that he likes, place a small dabs of tacky glue on each stone and let him decide where he would like to place them on his wall hanging.

To finish, add a string or yarn to the top of the wall hanging.

If you have younger children, you can have them draw five small stones on the wall hanging instead of gluing them on.

NOTE - This craft is for children five or older. Younger children could choke on small stones. Make sure the stones won't fall off the paper; and hand the wall hanging to the children's parents when they show up to pick their children up. Be careful not to leave any small stones behind.

Make David's Stones and Bag

davids stones and bag www.daniellesplace.comWhat you will need:

Brown Paper Lunch Bags

Computer Paper

String

Glue

Hole Punch

 

 

How to Make David's Stones and a Bag:

1. Fold the top of the bag down towards the inside of the bag 1 1/2". Fold it back three times so that your bag stands about 5 1/2" high. Punch 14 holes in the bag evenly spaced. Punch four in the front, four in the back, and three on each side.

2. Make a sample craft. Cut a length of string and weave it in and out of the holes starting in the front. Cut more string the same length for your students.

3. Print out the bag labels onto brown paper, cut them out, and glue to the front of the bags. (A pattern for this craft is available to members only on The Resource Room.)

4. Make play dough or buy it. You will need red, green, yellow, orange, and blue. To make the dough place a 1-pound box of baking soda, one cup of cornstarch, and 1 1/4 cups of cold water in a saucepan. Cook over low heat until the dough looks like mashed potatoes. Remove from the heat. Cover it with a damp cloth until it cools and then store in a plastic bag. This dough gets very hard. It feels a little gritty so have some wet paper towel available for the children.

5. You can also include a little booklet that explains what each color represents. See "David's Little Stones" craft below.

Memory Verse Search

Before class print out and cut out the memory verse chicks. (Pattern available to members of The Resource Room.) Make more than one copy of the pattern. Write one word of the memory verse on the belly of each chick. Hide the chicks around the room. You can tape them to the bottom and the back of chairs and on the walls, etc. After the lesson place the mother hen (use the pattern from the craft) in the center of the table (or tell them you are the mother hen). Tell the children that the mother hen is calling for her little chicks. Ask them to help the mother hen find her chicks and when they find one, bring them to you or the hen picture. When all the chicks are found have the children take turns trying to figure out the order the chicks need to be in to spell out the memory verse. If you have children who can't read or who are learning to read, ask them questions about the verse. For example, you can say, "Who has the word "he"? It starts with the letter "H". You can also write the words on the board and have the children match up their chick to the words on the board.

Feather Relay

Divide your children up into teams. Give each child a feather. Mark a starting point and an ending point. On the word go the first player in each team places his feather on the floor and uses a piece of cardboard to blow the feather across the room to the end mark and then back again. When the first player returns, the second player goes, and so on until the whole team has had a turn. The first team to have all their players cross the finish line wins. Preschool children will just enjoy trying to get their feathers across the line without touching them.

A complete lesson with crafts, activities, a song, and learning activities for home school use are included in this lesson and is available to members only.
