Jonah and the Whale Crafts and Activities
Take a small juice container (such as "fruit stand") which usually holds approx. 8 oz. Then have 2 paper (2 per child) big fish approx. 6-8 in. long or at least an inch or two longer than the container for the children to color or decorate. When finished decorating, glue the big fish (one on each side) to the fruit stand container - while laying on it's side - lengthwise so that the opening of the paper big fish is on the same side of the opening of the container, so it can swallow Jonah. Now it's time to make a clothespin Jonah. You can use yarn or string for hair or simply color a face on paper and paste it on as well as fabric scraps or paper for clothes. The kids love this one because it's pretty durable and they can continue to play with it at home. (Idea by Alisha)

SHARING TIME IDEAS:
Jonah and the people of Ninevah
Give everyone some "Goldfish Crackers", stick pretzels, and peanut butter. The children can dip their fishing pole (stick pretzel) into their bait (peanut butter) and catch a Goldfish.
Whale Treats - Use vanilla frosting colored with blue food coloring for water and have the children spread it on a graham cracker then have the children put whale crackers (just like fish crackers only in the shape of whales) on the frosting.
