We are having a great time studying the story of Noah’s Ark this week with our kiddos! Our toddler is full of “why?” questions about this story.
Our preschooler asks the more specific questions like: How did the animals get into the ark? How big was it? How did Noah build it?
God gave Noah a huge job, and Noah trusted and followed God. You can talk about these ideas as your child builds an ark of their own.
Genesis 6:9 Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his generation. Noah walked with God.
How to Make a Banana Noah’s Ark Snack

I originally saw this idea at MotherhoodonaDime. Check out her Noah’s ark ideas HERE. She also has an AMAZING Christian preschool curriculum, God’s Little Explorers. We used it for or kids and loved it.
What you’ll need:
- Animal crackers
- Peanut butter
For kids with a gluten allergy you can substitute animal crackers for a gluten free version. For peanut allergies you can use an alternative to peanut butter like almond butter or sunbutter.
- Slice a grove on the inside of the curve of the banana. (You can skip this step and put peanut butter directly onto the banana, but it holds together better with a grove).
- Fill the grove with peanut butter.
- Stick the animal crackers into the peanut butter.
While doing this activity, talk to your child about how Noah built the ark. What did he use to build it? How big was it? How did the animals get in? What animals do you think were on the ark?
Remember to keep it simple. Maybe you are just introducing your child to the story for the first time. If all they remember is the name “Noah,” that’s great! You can build on it later.
Pin this for later!
We hope you enjoyed this adorable activity with your child. Tell us about it in the comment section below! You can also post pictures of your child’s creations on our Facebook Page.
