“God’s Promises” Rainbow Booklet Craft

More than ever, children need to learn to trust God’s promises for their own lives. This simple activity is designed with that end in mind. It would be appropriate as part of a lesson on God’s promise to Noah or any lesson on God’s promises.

  1. Print one copy of the rainbow promise stories and one copy per child of the rainbow promise booklet pages.
  2. Cut apart the booklet pages (picture 1).
  3. Place the stories in different locations around the room with a pile of the matching small booklet pages near each story (picture 2).
  4. Divide the children into small groups. If some children cannot read well, there needs to be a teacher or older child with each group.
  5. Each group travels around the room reading the stories. At each location each child collects a booklet page.
  6. When the children return to the table, give each one a booklet cover.
  7. Each child stacks the pages to form a booklet and staples it together (picture 3).
Cut apart the booklet pages.
Place the stories in different locations around the room with a pile of the matching small booklet pages near each story
Each child stacks the pages to form a booklet and staples it together.

Variation: If you don’t have room to move around, staple the stories into a booklet, using the provided cover, and read it together. Then let the children cut apart the booklet pages and make their own booklets.

    PTL for your site. I have been praying that God would reveal to me a craft to do with my first grade Sunday School class that deals with FAITH! I am usually well prepared for my lesson ahead of time. But I really struggled with this lesson on Faith. Sure enough, I came to your site and God reveals to me……… what more would put faith into a child’s heart but a RAINBOW!! Thank You!

    What a great website, a source of information and creative ideas, thank you so much!
    I’ve used your idea and translated it into Dutch. I’ve changed it a little:
    I changed the order in which you place the pages of the booklet; I put the first one at the end. All the other pages I cut out around the topside of the bow so you can see the whole rainbow at the front, but it is actually build up in pieces from the pages of all Gods promises. At the page at the end I’ve written in Dutch ‘God keeps His promises’ and the question ‘Have you spoken with Him lately?’
    Love the idea of playing the game and reading it together. Thanks for your website & God bless!
    Best regards,
    Arianne
