Joshua and the Battle of Jericho VBS Snack Craft

This week is Vacation Bible School (VBS) for us and one of our lessons (or so I thought - read here about my mistake) was Joshua and the Battle of Jericho.  I had bought a craft book and it had the idea to use graham crackers and rice cakes for Jericho's wall.  My students used gummy bears to march around their city, but my own children ate all of the remaining gummy bears so I had to find something else to show you! These cute gingerbread man marshmallows worked perfectly!  (Teddy Grahams would be cute, too.) The "Bugles" were added for the rams' horns for the men to blow.  Stick everything together with icing.  I used canned vanilla.

Did this today in an outdoor neighborhood outreach ministry.... Everyone LOVED it!!! Even all the boys abandoned soccer to make & then eat them! Huge success! All Glory to God!!

This looks amazing! What did you use for inside the graham cracker walls? Was that where the icing goes? Thanks!!! I am wanting to use this for a Junior Church lesson on June 10th.

Yes! That's the canned icing (or use homemade). It stuck like glue :). Thank you!
