A Tent for Abraham and Sarah


This easy-to-make Bible times tent can also be a tent for Moses and the Exodus, Jacob's family, for Joseph stories, the prophets or other Bible stories. It can be a tent for David though mostly he stayed in caves when he was running from Saul.



Easy Stand up tent.

Separate easy stand up Abraham with Sarah, Lot and Baby Isaac so you can support many of the Abraham stories. Or use the people as someone else!

The stand up tent has a camel "tied up" out back. Water jug at the side and grain jar near the doorway.



or color printer.



Grades: K-4

Cutting and gluing are quite easy for kindergarten, first grade and older.. Aligning the 2 tabs on the tent side should be done with care.( Preschool 3 and early 4 would need quite a bit of assistance.

TENT
Make the tent first so it has a chance to dry.
1. Cut out both pieces of the tent
2. If you have the black and white version, color the tent pieces - suggestion that the both roof pieces are the same color, but it really doesn't matter. Do not color over the "Glue" spaces.
3. Write your name on the back of the tent paper. NOTE on the original page, the tops -or roofs of the tent are together so you have to turn one around so both the roofs are up ^. The camel and the pots should look upright.
4. FOLD on ALL DOTTED OR DASHED LINES
5. Put glue on glue space 1

6. Align side 1 next to glue space number 1 .
7. Use a piece of paper or ruler to align the bottom of all the tent pieces straight.
8. Bring side 1 over glue flap 1
9. To strengthen the first joint, you may use tape on the back over the joint. At this time, you may also put a small piece of tape on the inside across the paper over the point of the doorway to avoid tearing.


10. Re-fold on all lines
11. Put glue on glue space 2


12. Bring side 2 around to cover glue space 2 ( You can then also carefully tape inside to hold this joint.)
13. Put glue on roof space 1. (You remembered to fold on this line before gluing?)
14. Bring the other roof piece up to cover the roof glue space.


15. Gently pull out the 4 roof flaps over the front and back of the tent.
You're done!
