1. How to make a marble run

marble run 1This is a craft idea that will especially appeal to boys, although girls will enjoy it too. For which Bible stories or themes could you use a marble run?

Think about the story of Jacob who saw a ladder going up to heaven. Or stories that have a building theme. Or what about stories where water plays an important role? Then if you use blue marbles, they can represent the flowing water. You could also use it at Christmas because of the angels who came from heaven, or as a picture of Jesus who came down from heaven.

Often it’s harder to believe in a promise if you can’t imagine how it could come true, or if you have to wait for a long time. Today we’re going to make crystals. This is a promise, but you’ll have to wait before you can see the crystals.
