Babel's Tower: free pop-up coloring page printable

These last couple months have been such a joy!  I've been assisting a friend get a Sunday School program started for our growing church plant and we've decided to read through "The Jesus Storybook Bible" by Sally Lloyd-Jones through Zonder.  Since we are still a small group, the age range is fairly wide: from three to ten.  Finding projects to go along with the story has been a little trial and error, and a little bit of making projects up as I go!

That's why I wanted to share this free printable I made up with you.  I found the basic idea from "Hands On Bible Teacher", but was unable to locate any similar printable, so I sketched one out quickly and thought there may be someone else out there who could use the template

The basic idea is that you color it in, then cut along the top and bottom of each level.  Then, fold the stone layers forward and the rest backward to make the building stand out.  I think this would work well for a pop-up book, too, if you'd be so inclined!  Click on image below to open full sized.


To finish off the time after story, prayer, and this pop-up page, I brought in all our foam blocks and the kids broke off into teams.  The team to build the tallest tower in a set amount of time won! 


It seemed a good time was had by all and my son was even able to re-teach me what he had learned that morning, so  we're going to call it a win! =)  I hope someone else out there can put these ideas to use again, somewhere! And I would love to hear how it works for you!

  3. Many Thanks from Germany! I´m teaching sunday school for pre schoolers and its often hard to find crafts that involve more than coloring in or unrelated crafts. Super happy and will definitely be using this tomorrow. I will pre cut everything and let the Kids colour in.
