Sea Shell Boat Bible Craft


In A Nutshell

Make these cute little sea shell boats and race them in a pan of water. This is a quick, easy and very inexpensive craft. Great fun for all age children.

Sea Shell Boat Bible Craft


Preschool, Elementary, Tweens

Estimated Time

5 minutes to make, lots of time to race

What You Will Need

  • Clam sea shell
  • Small bit of putty
  • Small twig
  • Plastic table cloth
  • Scissors
  • Fine tipped permanent marker


  • Break off twig about a little bit larger than the length of the shell.
  • Put putty in the bottom of the shell.
  • Cut a tiny square out of the table cloth for the sail.
  • Cut two small slits in the sail, one at the top and one at the bottom.
  • Write a memory verse on the sail. For Jesus walks on water use, “... Truly you are the Son of God.” Matthew 14:32.
  • Slide the twig through the slits. Stick the end of the twig in the putty to hold it upright.


These boats really float. It is great fun to put them in a shallow pan like a 13x9 cake pan and race them by blowing on them. This makes a great craft and game to go with the Jesus Walks On Water Bible Lesson. Write out the memory verse on slips of paper, one for each child. Run races. Each time a child wins, they get a word from the memory verse. The first to get all the words to the verse wins. This is a great activity to go with the Jesus Walks On Water Bible Lesson.
