When it comes to studying the tower of Babel (Genesis 11), some type of building always seems to be involved. Some kids love the hands on stacking excitement (as seen in this cup stacking video), but others in your group may prefer a quieter activity.
Recently, when we were reading about the tower of Babel, I had this activity available for station time.
What You Need:
- Colored paper or construction paper, cut into strips
- Construction paper to use at the base
What You Do:
Cut the colored paper into strips of varies lengths. Make one sample craft, with the widest strips on the bottom and moving upward (as shown in picture). Encourage kids to build their own tower of Babel (but remind them that we’re building our tower’s for God’s glory, not our own.)
