A BIBLE STORY PLAY FOR THE YOUNG

fishing_boatFirst, you need two "boats"--a large box perhaps (big enough to fit a few young folks in) or make a bigger one with cardboard and have chairs inside. If you go to an appliance store, you may be able to get a refrigerator box--they work great! You need a bunch of fish to lay around the boat--in the water (you might not want to use real fish, they'd get pretty stinky after a while and they sure are slippery)! Use your imagination on the scenery here.

THE WORDS:

Fisherman four went fishing one night;

Rowed (1) in their boats with all their might;

Threw (2) out their nets in the water - swish!

And drew (3) them up, but found not a fish.

They threw (2) and pulled (3), threw (2) and pulled (3), and pulled (3) some more;

Till their shoulders (4) and backs and arms were sore.

When Yahshua said, "Throw," they let down (2) the net, hoping at least a few fish to get.

This time the net took four men to pull!

Shining fish piled up till both boats were full! (6)

THE MOTIONS:

(1) Row with large side-ward strokes;

(2) Throw out the nets;

(3) Draw up the nets and look carefully for fish;

(4) Rub sore shoulders and arms and backs;

(5) Pull the net in with great effort;

(6) Indicate the full boat with your hands.

HalleluYAH!
