Glove Story Telling

Saturday night I had a fun idea of how to teach my Sunbeams (3 and 4 year olds) in church the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and the firey furnace found in Daniel chapter 3 in the Bible. My mom had a little glove story like this when I was a kid, but more fancy. Anyway, I had a bunch of these gloves, eyeballs, and felt in one of my craft boxes and made a glove for each kid in my class. They were simple to make just a little time consuming. It was sooo worth it though. I told them the story with one of the gloves and then let them help me make theirs for them. I had all the little people ready and they told me which fingers they wanted them on while I hot glue gunned it. Then they put them on and told and retold the story. One of the moms told me that her son was still playing with it an hour after church and wanted to teach Family Home Evening the next night. Totally worth the work. :o)

King Nebuchadnezzar, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, and the Angel. The fire can be removed and reattached with velcro.

This is the idol that the King wanted them to bow down to and they wouldn't so threw them in the furnace, but they didn't get burned or hurt because they were obedient and an angel came to protect them.
