Sign of Jonah Craft (elementary)

Tuesday: Sign of Jonah
Bible Lesson: The Sign of Jonah
Memory Verse: Romans 6:23
Age Groups:
  • elementary
Supplies Needed:
  • squares of white posterboard
  • sticks (paint stirsticks or dowels)
  • poster paints (lots of yellow)
  • black construction-paper figures
    • whale
    • numeral 3
    • empty tomb with stone rolled aside
Each child gets a square of posterboard and a stick to mount it on (paint stirstick, dowel, etc). The square, when turned at a 45-degree angle, resembles a diamond-shaped roadsign. The children paint the sign yellow, stick it on the stick (like a roadsign is mounted on a post), and stick black cutout construction-paper figures on it to make a sign of Jonah. The black figures on the sign may include a whale silhouette, the numeral 3, or a grave with the stone rolled aside. The sign means that just as Jonah was in the belly of the fish for three days and three nights, so also Jesus was in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights.
