Build a story set
Build a story set for a Bible story using a construction toy e.g. Duplo, Lego, Jenga blocks).
Plan the route the characters will take through the set.
We built a set for the story of Ehud using Duplo and Lego combined. We then created characters for Ehud and the king, and played out the story using our set, which had some magnificent additional features not mentioned in the Biblical version, including crocodiles in the moat!
This is a fun and easy way to re-tell stories together, helping to get inside the action and the characters, as well as noticing what is and what isn’t mentioned. It can also help us imagine what it might have been like to be the different people in the story, and to see how they experience God as the story unfolds.
