Noah’s Ark Craft Instructions
1.First take each color of tissue paper and cut into pieces.
2. Then grab a paper plate, draw a line down the center of the plate to separate the rain side from the rainbow side.
3. Let’s work on the rainbow side first. Take the school glue and squeeze some along the border of one side of the plate. Use the paintbrush to spread the glue around. Glue red pieces of tissue paper along the edge of the plate. Take the paintbrush and spread some glue over the top of the red pieces, making sure to get all edges down.
4. Then glue orange pieces a little further into the center of the plate. Proceed with all the colors of the rainbow. Make sure all edges are sealed down so the plate can turn without getting stuck.
6. Then take the 4 cloud pieces (the half cloud shapes) and glue them to the bottom of the rainbow. Make sure they are above the line separating the two halves.
7. Next turn the plate so the rainbow is on the bottom, this blank half will have the rain.
8. Glue the two gray clouds toward the top of the plate. Then glue a bunch of the blue tissue paper pieces for the rain. Take the paintbrush and spread glue over the tops of the blue tissue paper pieces to make sure they are sealed down.
9. Now take the other plate and cut an ark shape. You’ll want to cut the sides to be an even line with half the plate, the ‘house’ part on the top can be any size.
10. Then take brown tissue paper and cut it into pieces.
11. Next take pieces of brown tissue paper and using glue and a paintbrush, stick onto the ark shaped plate.
12. Once the whole ark is covered, use the paintbrush and a little more glue to seal in all the edges.
13. Take the heart and glue it to the ark.
14. Once everything is dry, align the plates and poke a hole in the center of both plates. This can be done by an adult with a craft knife or the tip of scissors.
15. To complete the craft, put the brass fastener through the ark then through the rainbow/rain plate and fasten on the back.
You are finished! Now you can spin the plate to go from rainy to rainbow.
