Sunday school activity about Jonah for ages 7-12: But Jonah ran away from the Lord ...

Activity preparation:

  • Print a bulletin for each child
  • Gather pencils and crayons or colored pencils
  • Gather scissors for each child

Activity directions:

  1. Give each child a bulletin, a pencil, a pair of scissors and some crayons or colored pencils.
  2. Instruct the children to complete the puzzle, "But Jonah ran away from the Lord ... "
  3. Then, have the children color and cut out the five pictures of the story.
  4. Explain the activity, "After coloring and cutting out the five pictures of the story of Jonah, find a partner. Without looking at the bulletin, use the pictures to tell your partner the story of Jonah. Try to remember as many details as you can about the story. After you're done, read the story in your bulletin again while looking at the pictures. Then, switch. The person who told the story first will listen as his or her partner tells the story by using the pictures. After he or she is done, read the story in your bulletin again while looking at the pictures. Practice telling the story to each other until you remember all of the details about the story by just looking at the pictures."
  5. After the children have had time to work on remembering the story by using the pictures, ask for a volunteer to tell the story to the class.
