The LORD had said to Abram, ‘Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.... So Abram went, as the LORD had told himGenesis 12 v1,4
He took him outside and said, ‘Look up at the sky and count the stars – if indeed you can count them.’ Then he said to him, ‘So shall your offspring be.’Abram believed the LORDGenesis 15v5-6
The sky is a roll of blue paper. Across the bottom is a path made from the paper you get scrunched up in Amazon boxes. The mountains are torn black paper. (It would have been better to assemble the background before class).
We drew round the children's (and adults') feet on yellow card and they cut them out. I lightly pencilled the words so they would be going in the right direction and be a suitable size, and they did them in colour.
I had pre-cut gold and silver triangles and showed them how to make stars. They stuck them on and filled the background with star stickers - they love using star stickers and wanted more!
Only three children today with the holidays, but with two adults we just managed to get it finished!
