David and Goliath (deeds of David day 7)
We have arrived to the most well known story in David's life. I Samuel 17 tells of David's miraculous defeat over the Philistine giant Goliath. We have done this story before of course so you can check out activities we have done in the past.
Today, we made slingshots. We found sticks that were shaped in a "Y." We tightly wrapped a pony-tail holder across the top two branches of the Y, and attempted to knock an empty cereal box over with a rock on the slingshot. Obviously this was not an ideal slingshot and we are inexperienced operators, so we were only able to knock the box over once or twice. Which shows even more how amazing (and miraculous) it was for David to not only hit Goliath, but to kill him with a stone!
If you have older children I found this game on familyfun.com. It is called toppling towers and it looks like a lot of fun.
the point? God's plans always happen. God can do anything!
