Here’s a couple fun snacks to make and a science experiment to help your kids explore what the symbol of a rainbow could mean to them. In our text today (Genesis 9:8-17) God places a bow in the sky as a reminder of the covenant God makes with all living things. (This is important to bring up! ALL living things – not just Noah and his decedents.) God will never again bring destruction of the world through water.
Strawberries, an orange, apples (1 -red & 1 -green), blueberries, purple grapes, bananas and or marshmallows!
Needs – white bread, milk, food coloring, paint brushes, toaster
Pour a small amount of milk into small bowls and add a drop or two of food coloring to make the colors you would like. Give out pieces of bread and have everyone use a paintbrush to design their bread. When they are satisfied – put the bread in the toaster. Enjoy!
