It’s that time of the month again and we’re sharing what we’ve been up to with Experience God. Of course we spent lots of time doing the fun, creative projects that were included in this month’s preschool curriculum kit
The little guy and I just couldn’t pass up making this cute whale craft. Isn’t it adorable? If you’re interested in making your own and teaching your little kids about the Jonah & the Whale bible story, then definitely keep reading.

A huge thanks to Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) for providing us with their Experience Preschool curriculum for free in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. It’s been such a huge blessing to us! As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own.
Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.
And you know what, they’ve clearly thought of everything because they offer a Christian supplement too. Did I mention that we’re kinda in love with it? I’m sure that isn’t exactly a surprise, though. Lol…
Whale Bible Story Art for Little Kids
Visual Arts (32.2), Logic (20.1), Scientific Reasoning 25.3
What you’ll need
- Pipe Cleaner
- Wiggle Eyes
- Colored Paper
- Tape and/or Glue
Here’s how to do it
Ask: How do you think Jonah felt while in the belly of the whale?
- Discuss when children have had feelings such as sadness, anger, fear, or excitement.
- Paint the bowl blue.
- Use the scissors to poke a small hole in the bottom of the bowl. Fold the pipe cleaner in half and put it in the hole with both ends sticking out to create a water spout.
- Cut out some fins and a tail from the paper. Glue or tape on the fins, tails and wiggle eyes.
Explain: God sent a whale to save Jonah and to bring him back to knowing and trusting God.
The little guy is all about messy fun and especially when it results in something this awesome. He totally made a whale. All by himself even. Gotta love it!
