Mission Sunday: Tower of Babel

image

I got to coordinate crafts for Esmé’s class (ages 4-9) at church this weekend, and thought we’d share our Tower of Babel activities here…

First, the origami tower:

I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for as an online printable, so made my own origami Tower of Babel printable.  You’re welcome to download it for your own use; I’ve included a few variations in case you are using it with a different memory verse, etc.  Print it on card stock, hand out the scissors, and you’re good to go – you could also extend the activity by coloring the tower.

The second activity was the tower in the clouds.

  • Collect wrapping paper rolls or paper towel rolls
  • Print out a block print (several free options at Jennifer’s Printables) and cut to size if desired
  • Wrap it around the roll and tape/glue it in place
  • Glue cotton balls to represent clouds at the top
  • Glue a paper block with your scripture verse to the bottom.  I used the free block printable at LittleBlots.com and added our verse to it as shown here:

Pictured is Esmé’s craft –  I ran out of block prints and her blocks were drawn in with a brown marker, and she taped her scripture block midway up the tower instead of at the bottom, but there’s the idea…
