I teach P1 & 2 (4½ - 6½) in Sunday School. The kids are mostly fairly good, but they're kids. Sometimes - like this Sunday - they can be a wee bit hyper.

So you say to them, "Wheesht," and you say to them, "Calm down, please."

And sometimes they do (sort of). And sometimes they don't.

Jesus was in a boat in a storm. The wind was howling, and the waves were tossing. The disciples were terrified.

So he said to the wind, "Wheesht," and he said to the waves, "Calm down please."*

And there was silence and a flat calm.

"Who is this?  Even the wind and the waves obey him!"

P1&2 having fun.
Foil pie dishes, fun foam squares, scratch art tools for masts, stuck together with blu-tack (note: use plenty of blu-tack or the masts will come off when manhandled by small children!)

*Well, obviously he said it in Aramaic which has been translated into Greek and then into English as "‘Quiet! Be still!" But I guess my translation's as good :-)
