Combine the age-old art of paper folding with the greatest stories from the Bible! This new boxed set contains everything you need to fold up colorful paper figurines from famous Biblical stories and assemble them on background tableaus to help retell the stories. A full-color 64-page instruction booklet provides detailed, step-by-step folding instructions for each figure. Custom-designed printed papers are provided for all the people, animals and objects comprising the 72 models.
Each Biblical tale is introduced, followed by an explanation of the significance of all the folded paper figures in the story. The finished pieces can then be used to reenact these timeless stories, or to create inspiring dioramas. These reenactments using paper figures and background help bring the sacred Bible stories alive for your family, your youth group or your Sunday school class. The stories with figures and backgrounds included in this kit are the following: Adam and Eve, Noah's Ark, the Tower of Babel, Jacob's Ladder, Jonah and the Whale, the Annunciation, the First Christmas, Easter, and the Good Shepherd.
