Here is an activity that would work well if talking about Noah, obedience, or favorite things.
Have the children pair off. If there is an odd number of children, you can pair up with someone. While in pairs, have everyone talk about their favorite animals. Maybe they are pets, or maybe animals in the zoo, or even wild animals. Once everyone has a chance to talk about their favorite animals in pairs, ask if anyone wants to share about their favorite animals with the entire group. After a few children share, pass out the coloring page and have the children draw a picture of their favorite animal. Remind them to thank God for saving all the animals in the ark. Also remind them that it is because Noah obeyed God that he and his family and animals were saved. Sometimes there are great things that happen when we choose to obey what God says. You can share with them something good that happened when you obeyed God.
