Sunday Schoolhouse Series Activity - Red Unit B2
Lesson 3: Elijah Challenges the Priests of Baal
(1Kings 18:17 - 40)
Altar Craft - Materials needed:
- paper plate for each child
- frosting and plastic knives for each child
- 12 pieces of caramel for each child
- chow mein noodles
- red/yellow/orange jelly beans
On the outer edge of the plate have the children write, "You, O Lord, are God!" The children will build the altar like Elijah did. The caramels represent the 12 stones Elijah used. Use the frosting to stick the stones in a circle to the place. Put a dab of frosting inside the circle and put on the sticks of wood/chow mein noodles. Then add another dab of frosting and stick on the fire/jelly beans.
Instruct the children to recount the story to their families as they all share in the edible craft.
