Soap Sculpture

Friday: Soap Sculpture
Bible Lesson: Peter in Prison: We should be praying; prayer is effective.
Memory Verse: 1st Thessalonians 5:16-18
Age Groups:
  • teens
Supplies Needed:
  • soap
  • tools for sculpting soap
  • patterns/ideas for what to sculpt out of the soap (examples: praying hands to represent prayer, Peter between two guards, the Word of God as a sword, ...)
Note: You can also offer teens the option of continuing to work on their cap curtains, if they aren't finished yet, rather than doing the soap sculpture.
Each teen receives a bar of soap and a sculpting tool. Have them sculpt something from the Bible lesson, e.g., prayer. Teens who do not feel "up to" a three-dimensional sculpture may do a two-dimensional engraving on the surface of the soap. The silhouette from the elementary praying hands craft can be made available to the artistically challenged.
