Sodom and Gomorrah

Genesis 19:1-29

Our binder project for this lesson is courtesy of "sewhttkr" and can be printed from the original website found  here or a copy I made found here.

 Alternately, Church House Collection has a nice maze that focuses on Lot's wife being turned into a pillar of salt that can be printed from here.

 We chose a salt dough statue for our activity, with the easy recipe found here courtesy of Busy Bees Kids Crafts, although there are a number of recipes online.  We chose to let our dough dry naturally over the course of a week and then used acrylic paints to add details.  Since the children worked so hard on their dough, we let them use all of the dough on whatever shapes they chose after completing Lot's wife.  This especially thrilled them when it came time for painting!
