    Joshua fought the battle of Jericho is a very well known bible story that kids love to hear. Our Sunday school kids normally say, "Tell it again" just as soon as I've finished. While I love that they want to hear it again, we very seldom have time to tell it again.

    That's why I've come up with the Sunday school activities below.

    Give the kids more than just a bible story - give them the excitement of learning the word of God!!

    Here's the FREE Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho Sunday school lesson.

    Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho Sunday School Activity

    You'll need a few items before getting started.

    • cardboard boxes or other building materials (pillows, paper bags, etc.)
    • empty toilet paper rolls, paper towel rolls, or wrapping paper rolls to use as horns (you can also purchase real horns at your local dollar store or order them online)
    • chairs
    • rocks (real or pretend)
    You can either choose to do this activity during the story or after to reinforce what the kids have learned depending on how much time you have.

    First, you'll need to line up chairs in two rows. Leave only enough room between the lined up chairs for the kids to walk through easily.

    Next, place the rocks halfway down the row of chairs in the floor.

    This is going to serve as your Jordan River and the rocks in the center of it.

    You can choose to already have the walls of Jericho built using the cardboard boxes or other building material (hint: you can also use small plastic chairs) or let the kids help you make a round wall.

    Now, have the kids walk through the Jordan River just like in the Sunday school lesson of Joshua picking up one rock on their way through.

    After they have passed through all the chairs, have the place their blocks in a pile just as Joshua did.

    Now, give the kids their horns.

    Have them walk around the 'walls of Jericho' six times quietly, then on the seventh time have them blow their horns and SHOUT!

    After they shout, let the kids knock down the walls!

    If you have time, reset and start again.
