David's Sling & Stones Snack Craft

Posted by Lori:

This snack worked perfectly when I taught the 1st and 2nd graders the David and Goliath Bible story in VBS (read here for my post about teaching the lesson and activities for the lesson) last week.  The kids had fun making it, of course, but had even more fun eating it!  I found these candy "rocks" at Atwoods (a chain farm/ranch store), but Walmart and candy stores also sell chocolate rocks.  The chocolate rocks are smaller than these gummy rocks, but they would still work just fine.


(All items below are needed per child.)
1 fruit roll up  (I used strawberry)
2 pieces ("strings") of Twizzler pull-apart candy (I used red)
5 candy rocks

Unwrap fruit roll up.  Place the fruit roll up square on top of the plastic it came on to keep it from sticking to plate or table.  Fold roll up in half, then in half again, making a square.  This is the sling part.  Place one Twizzler string on top edge of square and press down to secure...leaving equal lengths of string coming out from each side, forming one sling strap.  Using remaining Twizzler string, repeat on the bottom of the square to form the other sling strap. Place one rock on the middle of the fruit roll up sling square and the others around the sling.

Cute! Did anyone try to sling their stone?

Not those, but the ones I mentioned on my devotional blog they did. They probably would have if we hadn't done the "real" slings first! :)
