Trash-Filled Thursdays - Old Shoeboxes

Ask your congregation to bring in old shoeboxes and you will have a treasure unlike any you could ever buy!!!! Yes, that is right!! All you need are old shoeboxes and brown paper (mailing paper or bulletin board paper works great!). Get the boxes, wrap them with paper and off you go!! These boxes are over 2 years old. Some are showing their age, but how easy is it to replace? VERY!!! Once you get your boxes ready, you can do the following:
  1. Noah's Ark - have the students build the ark
  2. Tower of Babel - have the students build the tower
  3. Build altars
  4. Build the temple
  5. Nehemiah - rebuild the wall of Jerusalem
  6. Pile them up for a mountain

Of course, there are more things you can do with them. Do you have any more ideas?

You could build the wall of Jericho and then have it fall.

Oh, of course they could march around it first!
