Sunday Snippet: Noah’s Ark GiveAway…

So it’s Sunday and time for another GiveAway. As usual I have to thank Christian Book Discounters who kindly supplied the book for this GiveAway…


Here you go, have a look at this beautiful, beautiful Noah’s Ark the words are from the Authorized King James Version of the Bible and illustrated by Jane Ray.


Everyone has heard the story of Noah countless time, it is a classic tale from generation to generation. And who doesn’t love it!!! So how do we make it memorable instead of rote. It is the one Sunday School class that you can be sure your children will do – a cardboard ark with little animal stickers spattered all over it. It is one of those art classes where you can be sure that every child will know the story and be able to make an art work with from it… So how does one make it memorable?

Food is your friend:

  • We made a pizza ark:

  • And quick animal crackers – roll out some puff pastry (I always have a packet in the freezer) and stamp out some animals, using cookie cutters and sprinkle with castor sugar. Bake in a medium oven for about 8 minutes until they are crispy.

  • Eventually, after weeks and weeks on board the ark Noah sent out a dove and it returned with an olive leaf – we made some minty chocolate leaves, and you can learn how at Ordinary Life Magic:

  1. We sleepy knitters would be happy to have that book! We are bringing on a new little knitter from the same orphanage as our first, and I hope he will be as avid a reader as his big sister.

    By the way, I did order that Bruchko book for my college research writers’ book report unit, and my students are loving it so far. Thank you for the review last spring!

  2. My oldest is fascinated by the ark story. When we did our thanksgiving project and I asked her what she was thankful for this year she listed “that Noah built the ark” as one of her top five! -She’s only 3! Love your ideas to encorporate more ark stuff to encourage her love of learning. Thanks for the awesome blog!
