Calming the Storm Bible Craft

by Karen & Grace Morris

The calming the storm Bible craft will be fun to make in your class. Most of the supplies should be in your church supply cabinet. It is also easy to make.

calming the storm

After Jesus was teaching the crowd, He and His disciples got into a boat. Jesus fell asleep.

While the disciples were sailing across the sea (sometimes called a lake), a storm blew in. The wind was so bad that the disciples thought that the boat would sink.

So they woke Jesus up. He rebuked them for their disbelief and calmed the storm.

You can read the story in Mark 4:35-40 and Luke 8:22-25.

Let's Make
The Calming the Storm Bible Craft

You will need;

  • Blue construction paper
  • Black paper
  • A piece of construction paper in your favorite color for the boat
  • Free downloadable boat PDF (optional)
  • 3 blue cupcake liners
  • Glue
glue 3 cupcake liners together

Fold the three cupcake liners in half. Make a line of glue on the bottom near the fold on one of the cupcake liners. Place the other cupcake liners on the glue. This will be the waves.

make the boat

To make a boat draw a crescent 4 1/4 by 1 inch. Then add a rectangle that is 2 by 1/2 inches. Add a 1 1/2 inch triangle for the sail. Before you cut the shape out, add a 5 1/4 by 1 1/2 inch rectangle to the bottom of the boat.

glue cupcake liners to the boat

Glue the boat in the center of the cupcake liner waves. It will be above the cupcake liners. The rectangle will hang below.

make the wind

Draw the number six three times on black paper. The round shape is approximately 3 1/2 inches. Cut the number so that it is about 1/4 inch wide. This will be the wind.

draw a line

On your paper, draw a curved line approximately 8 inches long. Start it about 1 inch from the bottom edge and curve the line, approximately 4 1/2 inches from the other bottom corner. Cut on the line but don't cut near the edges. This will be the stormy sea.

glue the wind to the corner

Glue the spirals that represent the wind to the top corner above the curved line.

add the boat

Add the boat with the waves to the cut line.

When you move the boat to the wind, it will look like a stormy sea. Move the boat back to the start after Jesus calms the sea.
