The following is a listing of bible story activities that can be used to teach the Bible story and truths to children in Christian Preschool and Children's Ministry Sunday School classes.

Bible Story Activities.
Let the children draw the ark and the rainbow using colors or markers.
Signs of the Promises.  God placed a rainbow in the sky as a reminder of the covenant He made with Noah.  Ask the children to make up signs which can remind them of some of God's other promises.
Example.  The children can use something associated with their favorite activity to remind them that God has plans to prosper them and not to harm them, plans to give them hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).
What the child picks as a sign is not important.  Children can each have different signs for the same promise.  But whenever the children see or think about whatever they select as a sign, that sign can remind them of one of God's Promises.
The children can make up a sign for one of God's promises they may have memorized.  Or they can choose a promise from this list of some of God's promises.
The Promise Maker.  A person's promises reflect his or her character.  Help the children learn about God and His character by studying some of the promises He has made to us.
Use Bible Drills to reinforce a topic from the story.
If the class is younger, ask the class to find a single verse.  You can read it aloud after everyone finds the verse.
If the class is older, give each student a different verse to find.  Let each student read their verse aloud.
Help the children realize that God blesses many people by finding these verses which describe People Blessed By God.
Help the children realize that God has made many promises we can count on by finding these verses which describe some of God's Promises.
People of the Bible.
Learn about Noah.

Life in Biblical Times.
To remind the children that God provides for our needs, serve foods mentioned in the Bible during snack time.  Eat the snack outdoors, sitting on a blanket as they would have done during biblical times.
