Welcome to Day #4 of teh 31 Days of Bible Crafts! Today, we’ll be shifting our attention back to Genesis as we focus on the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah (a completely kid-friendly story, right?).
How Many, Lord?
During Children’s Church, we began with a bead activity to illustrate just how few people it would have taken for God to spare the city.
The first cup illustrated how many people in were in the city. The following cups represent the request Abraham made to the Lord each time (what if 50, Lord?). As I told the story, I held up the coordinating cup, emphasizing that not even 10 people could be found in this wicked city.

#1: Salt Lady (Lot’s Wife)
For this craft, kids use a coloring sheet featuring Lot’s wife. First, they paint her with glue (pour a little into small cups) and then sprinkle her with salt. You may also want to ration out the salt into little cups.
#2 Sin Leaves Us in Tangled Mess
I believe this activity was suggested in the Stickers Through the Bible curriculum. I wove the concept throughout the lesson time that once you start down a path of sin, you often end up in a tangled mess. Kids glued scraps of yarn (by dipping them into a container of glue) onto a page that says just that.
