I’m creating new crafts and printables for many of my Bible story posts. As I was reading this passage again, I thought about how bright and full the sky must have been when Abram stood outside his tent. These words from the Psalm 8 came to mind,
When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?
I love creating crafts that encourage interaction and give kids the opportunity to retell the story. This simple diorama printable is available both in color and black and white. Cutting, gluing, and coloring will give you plenty of time to discuss the story and the wonder of the promise God made to Abraham.
Cut out the diorama portion and overlap the triangle flaps attaching them to each other with glue. Cut out the Abraham figure, fold the flap, and glue to the base of the diorama.
For another project, you can try this triorama we made in Awana to help us remember when God spoke to Abraham and told him that his descendants would be as many as the stars. Visit this great paper-folding site for instructions to create your triorama from a square piece of construction paper. We added a brown triangle to make the ground.
I created the printable for this craft from various shapes including a bunch of tiny circles for Abraham’s beard. I provided gold star stickers to add to the night sky.
You can download the free printables for both of these Abraham & Stars crafts in my shop.
