MATERIALS:

DURATION:

Approximately 10 minutes


Rainbow
 

PREPARATION:

Using paper plates cut out arches that resemble the shape of a rainbow. With a black marker write, "God keeps His promises." Make one for each child in class.

WHAT YOU WILL DO:

The children will take the paper plate arches and color them all the beautiful colors of the rainbow. Instruct them to take one color at a time and follow the shape of the arch. It will be helpful to complete a craft along with the children so they can have an idea of how it should look. Once completed tell the children that they can take the rainbows home and hang them on the refrigerator or on the wall in their rooms. They should look at the craft each day and remember that God keeps His promises. 

(Option)
You can easily turn this craft into a mobile by printing out a set of mobile pictures on card stock for each student. Have the kids attach one picture under each leg of the rainbow with yarn.

WHAT YOU WILL SAY:

As the kids work on their projects ask the following questions:
1. Have you ever seen a rainbow?
2. Do you remember the first time you saw a rainbow?
3. How do you think Noah felt the first time he saw God's rainbow?
