Jesus Calms the Storm

Thinking about creative ways to teach my kids the Bible stories, I decided to do the story about Jesus calming the storm.  We read through the story and talked about how crazy it would be that Jesus was sleeping during the storm.  We also made simple boats out of play doh, straws, paper, and a Tupperware lid.  It was simple.  We reenacted the story by putting the boats in water and then pour water over the boat and the storm crashes.  Lots of craziness, fun, and learning.

Here is the simple boat.
