Shadrach, Meshach, and Abendago trusted God. They were more interested in giving glory to God, than saving their own lives. So when the king threw them into a Fiery furnace, God sent his angel of protection. Here’s how we played through this story.
The Fiery Furnace
First we read the story in our Storybook Bible. I made sure to emphasize that they cared more about what God thought then what the king thought, and also pointed out that fire is very dangerous, and the only reason they were safe was because God protected them.
We made a fiery furnace. Naomi has been obsessed with playing under the table, so I seized the opportunity.
What you need:
- Drape table cloth over table, and tap up the side for an entry to the “furnace.”
- Tape red and yellow tissue paper into the opening. Cut into strips, but do not cut all the way through.
- Place electric tea lights in cups. Place cups and “fire” into “furnace.” Enjoy hours of play.
Naomi enjoyed playing with the tissue paper. The sound created a great sensory element, and she ripped it, working on fine-motor skills.
Vale enjoyed stacking the cups and knowing them over, which also works on fine motor skills.
