A Delicious Lesson in Thankfulness

Project: Kids will build edible brick towers to remind them of the tower of Babel.

Supplies: Cornbread, knife, honey in squeeze bottles, paper plates, clean bed sheet.

Preparation: Spread a clean sheet on the floor. Then cut cornbread into small, medium, and large squares so kids will be able to easily stack three. Set out the plates and squeeze bottles of honey.

Easy Steps for Edible Towers:

  1. Encourage the children to wash their hands before they make their edible crafts.
  2. Ask the children to build towers on their plates, using large, medium, and small squares of cornbread.
  3. Let the children pretend the honey is the mortar that holds the cornbread bricks together.

Preschool Connection:

Gather children on the sheet and lead them in prayer, thanking God for all of his blessings. Then let children eat their cornbread towers. Read Genesis 11:1-9 aloud from an easy-to-understand Bible translation so children know the passage is in God's word. Then ask:

  • Why did we build our towers?
  • Why did the people build their tower?
  • Who did the people in the story forget about?

Say: We built our tower because we wanted a snack. We remembered to pray to God and thank him for his blessings. The people in the story forgot all about God. They just wanted to build a tower so they could make a name for themselves and be famous. They acted as if they didn't need God at all. Let's always remember to thank God each and every day in all that we do.
