Noah and the Ark

Game Workshop

Keeping Promises


Summary of Lesson Activities:

Uses broken sticks as a symbol for broken promises.


Scripture Reference:

Genesis 6-9

Lesson Objectives:
Kids will learn how keeping promises is important – and how hard it actually is to “repair” a broken promise.

Leader Preparation:

  • Read the scripture ahead of time.
  • Gather the materials.

Supplies List:

  • Bibles
  • Sticks
  • Scotch tape



Opening-Welcome and Lesson Introduction:

Greet the children and introduce yourself. Begin with a brief prayer asking God to help us be obedient.


Dig-Main Content and Reflection:

Tell each of the kids to pick a stick of their choice – remind them that they are NOT to be used as a weapon!


Explain to the children that their stick represents a promise – and then have them break their sticks – representing the breaking of promises.


Then pass out the scotch tape – let the kids know that now they have to “fix” their stick. This will take a while!


Talk with them about how easy it was to “break” a promise and how hard it is to “repair” a broken promise.

Ask the following questions:

  • How easy was it to break the promises?
  • How hard was it to “fix” a broken promise?
  • Have you ever broken a promise? How hard was it to fix that promise?
  • What promise did God make with Noah?

Ask for a quick show of hands on how many of the kids remembered the story of Noah you read earlier in the class? Read Genesis 6:11-14 and say, Noah must have thought it strange that God told him to build the ark when the weather was just fine! NO RAIN!


  • What do you think would have happened if Noah had said NO to God?
  • Why is it really important that we listen to God and do as he says?
  • How can we find out what God wants us to do?
  • How do you think you would respond if you were asked by God to build an Ark?
  • Could you have handled the teasing from others?
