Noah’s Ark Crafts & Activities for Kids

Spring’s rain and thunderstorms have arrived!  Our theme this week is rain, so I thought we would start with a story about a whole lot of rain!

Noah’s Ark by Peter Spier is a wordless book illustrating the Biblical story of Noah.  I read our children’s Bible first and then shared this version with the girls.

Noah's Ark (Picture Yearling Book)

When reading the story of Noah’s ark with my preschoolers, I try to focus their attention on God’s protection of Noah and His promise to us.

Next, we made a rainbow to remind us of that covenant.

Preschool Rainbow Craft


  • Sheets of dots (found in the office supply section)
  • Paper

1)  Cut a piece of black 8.5″ by 11″ paper in half.  Draw four curved lines for the rainbow in pencil.

2)  Have your child stick colored dots on the lines to make a rainbow.

Finally, we made Banana Arks for a snack.

Noah’s Ark Snack


  • Bananas
  • Peanut Butter
  • Animal Crackers


1)  Peel a banana and place on a plate or in a bowl.  Spread with peanut butter.

2)  Find matching animals to put on the ark!


Another easy snack idea for a Noah’s Ark theme is to make Pita Pocket Arks.

  1. Cut a pita pocket in half.  Have your child spread peanut butter and jelly inside the pita pocket.
  2. Match pairs of animal crackers.  Put them in the ark!
