The Tower Of Babel

Posted on

Today’s post comes courtesy of Lindsey Whitney from Growing Kids Ministry. In it she tells us about a few crafts and activities you can do with your kids when studying the story of the Tower of Babel.

Tower of Babel (1)

Lindsey Whitney is a Children’s Ministry director at East Lake Road Alliance Church, home day care provider, and blogger at Growing Kids Ministry. Lindsey lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and two kids. She loves reading books, drinking coffee and has recently taken up sewing.

Currently we’re working through the Bible with a fun new curriculum I just discovered over at Kidology called Stickers Through The Bible. This week, we covered the Tower of Babel and the kids had a heap of fun learning about this account from Genesis 11.

To begin, I showed the kids this picture of the Tower of Babel as I taught the lesson.

We talked about how Jesus is the only way to God and how the people building the tower were too focused on being famous. After the lesson time, I sent kids off to the various stations to process the story in a hands-on way. Here’s what our stations were for the day.

Sand Paper Tower

Inspired by this project from Veronica’s Blessing, the kids made their own tower of Babel.

However, instead of using regular brown paper, we used sandpaper in order to make the “building of the tower” a more tactile experience.

Tower of Babel: Class Activities for Kids

For this craft, you’ll need about 1/2 sheet of large sand paper for each child. If you have younger kids, you might want to cut out various lengths ahead of time. For older kids, have them cut their strips as they go. Have kids glue the sandpaper to construction paper.

Building a Tower

Inspired by this picture from Froggy Friends blog, I laid out some cups for the kids to create their own tower of Babel.

Little did I know what a ruckus activity this would turn out to be. The kids loved it! They quickly set up various building corners and began to compete for highest tower.

They began with the single stack. But, they soon began getting more creative with their building techniques.

Easy does it!

Careful!

We actually had to send a innocent bystander outside the classroom to the kitchen for more cups because those towers keep getting more and more complex.

We also had a few different coloring pages for those less active kids.

I found a few on BibleWise and Suite101.

In the end, I think it was a great lesson and hopefully one the kids will remember!
