As part of our homeschool curriculum, we study the Bible.
Now that my daughter is older, she does an online Bible history class.
However, when she was younger, our Bible “study” consisted of Bible stories from a great children’s Bible book.
As you can imagine, it takes some creativity to keep a kid interested in some of the Bible stories.
For example, we came off of studying Noah’s Ark (which of course she loved) right into studying about Abraham and Sarah.
As you can imagine story of Abraham for kids paled in comparison to the story of ALL.THOSE.ANIMALS. from the Ark.
So, I knew I had to do something to get her interested in God telling Abraham and Sarah to move to a new land and then blessing them with a baby.
I looked around for a couple of days for a craft to make about Abraham and Sarah and didn’t find anything interesting.
(My kid is so not into coloring sheets. Go figure. An Abraham and Sarah coloring page was out for her.)
So . . . I decided to create one.
God Made a Promise to Abraham Craft
One of the things that did capture my daughter’s interest from our Bible book story was that Abraham and Sarah had to pack a camel to move.
So, I decided to focus on that aspect.
We made a camel that she was able to “pack” with some belongings.
We also focused on the vocabulary word “trust” since Abraham and Sarah didn’t completely understand God’s direction, but had to trust Him in order to relocate and have a baby.
If you’re looking for a great Abraham and Sarah activities for preschool, homeschool, or Sunday school, this is a fun one!
This Abraham trusted God craft has turned into one of our favorite Bible crafts of all time! (And, it will definitely be one of the best Abraham Bible crafts for preschoolers in your Sunday school class, group, or homeschool!)
