Noah’s Ark is my favorite children’s Bible story. It always has been. For years, I collected Noah’s Ark knick-knacks and picture books. Because she’s animal-obsessed, it has always been a favorite story of Emma’s, as well. Therefore, it only made since to kick off my 31 Days of Read-Alouds series with Noah’s Ark!
In addition to reading the account straight from the Bible or from a children’s Bible, there are so many picture-book versions on Noah’s Ark. There are videos, as well, that bring the story to life.
Kids of all ages love the story of Noah’s Ark. They love to imagine life on a giant ship full of animals. They love to discuss how they think it smelled or how the animals got along. What would it be like to build a giant boat in a time when there had never been rain?
After reading the story with your little ones and completing some of the activity pages, choose one or more of the activities below to bring the story to life.
