How some simple art brought some Sunday School lessons to life! by Pat Franklin

Our poster of the 90ft golden idol and the fiery furnace

"Paul in a basket" on a paper plate

I cannot draw at all, and find myself very surprised that the Lord usually gives me some piece of art or craft work for Sunday School to bring the lesson to life and give the kids a chance to participate.  So here are a few things we did.

The "Fiery furnace" poster was fun.  You may not be able to read it all.  On the golden idol, which they colored, we wrote printed "Stupid idol".  You might not be able to make out the four figures in the furnace ( one being the Lord) or the Babylonians on top of the earth furnace catching light themselves and burning up.  How God turns the tables on wicked people when they come against the Jews!  We used some red and gold glitter for the flames. 

That lesson was  done during a year when we looked at some of the many names of God.  The name that week was El Elyon, Most High God.  We talked about how some misguided people STILL worship stupid idols.  Whole countries worship them!  Even this week I saw a program in which men made large angry looking heads and set them up outside their town - and actually worshipped the stupid things!  Junk that they had made with their own hands!   And they were praying to the heads and asking for a good harvest.  Duh... 

"Paul in a basket" was, I think, an idea from the internet, and the kids really liked making it while we talked about the dangers Paul faced and how determined he was to do God's work in the face of persecution.
