AIXpedition Atlantis: Journey to the Bottom of the Sea!

ICCP Kids’ Camp crafts continued…

Day 2. Team Colors (we wear our T-shirts for the camp photo)

The teaching: God can be trusted: Jonah wrestled with trusting that God knew what He was doing.


The project: A shadowbox


Have the children think about: What’s it like to be caught in the belly of a whale…or some place you’d rather not be? What do you think about when there’s no way out?


The supplies: shoebox, popsicle sticks, paint, tissue paper, stiff construction paper, cardboard, pens

glue, scissors, a few of rulers


- pre-prep: cut center from box lid and 1 side of box side with an Xacto knife

- Distribute supplies: have a separate painting station, a drawing station & glue at each table

- Explain how-to, showing sample cut outs

- Assistants help cut tissue paper to fit box lid & glue at a separate station

- Other assistants direct modeling & assembly

- Provide a safe place to store the projects until it’s time to go home.


What I learned from Jonah chapter 2:

Jonah’s heartfelt prayer of repentance is comparable to Psalms 69, and countless other cries of distress uttered throughout the ages.

            It usually takes a crisis to realize one’s personal incompetence.

            What’s my prayer?


“You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star.” Nietsche
