Mark 4:35-41 Jesus Calms the Water
  • Pool Noodle,
  • Plastic Straws,
  • Foam Sheet, Scissors,
  • Hole Punch,
  • Large Plastic Bin,
  • Water, Optional: Blue Food Coloring
Looking for a fun hands on way to teach your kids about the Fruit of the Spirit is Peace? Backyard boats are the perfect hands on activity to reenact how Jesus calmed the storm. He gives us peace in the middle of our storms.
  1. Use scissors (or a knife) to cut the pool noodle into 2-3″ slices.
  2. Cut triangles out of the foam sheet and punch a hole at the top and the bottom.
  3. Cut the straw to your desired length and then poke into the pool noodle.
  4. Fill a large bin with water in your backyard (add blue food coloring if you want) & add the boats—use your hand to create waves in the water and reenact how Jesus calmed the storm.
