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