Bible Story Craft for The Wisdom of King Solomon
1. For the baby: cardboard or beige construction paper, colors for the blanket as you like.
2. For the sword, cardboard or construction paper, colors as you like.
1. Trace the baby on cardboard or beige construction paper, have the children draw in a face and hair, color the blanket as you like.
Explain to the children how two ladies living in a house together each had a baby, and how one baby died. Tell them how the mother of the dead baby put her baby by the other mother, and took the live baby and pretended he was hers. Tell them how they went to see King Solomon, because he was a very wise King.
2. Trace the sword onto cardboard or construction paper, color the blade grey and the handle as you like.
Explain to the children how King Solomon listened to each mother say the live child was hers, and how he then asked for a sword. Tell them that King Solomon said to cut the child in half and give half to each mother. Then tell the children how the lady who wasn’t the real mother agreed to kill the baby, but the real mother of the baby told King Solomon to give the baby to the other lady because she loved it so much. Then tell them that King Solomon knew the real mother loved the baby so much she would rather give the baby up than see it killed, and so King Solomon gave the baby back to its real mother.
And tell them that everyone knew that the wisdom of God was in King Solomon…
