Samuel Called By God Craft
This was a craft my elementary-aged Sunday School class had fun with when we did the story of Samuel. All you need is foil, mini-marshmallows (we used multicolored) and a mini-gingerbread boy or other human-shaped cookies (we used Keebler elves). On a piece of foil, line up the marshmallows in a rectangle pattern (we did 6 rows of 4; adjust depending on the size of your cookie.) Place on cookie sheet and heat in a 350 degree oven for 2-3 minutes; watch carefully so they don't brown. Marshmallows will puff up and stick together, creating a patchwork quilt-like effect. Cool, and you have an edible "bed" for Samuel to sleep in and hear the voice of God. After they act out the story, they can eat the bed and cookie for a snack.
