Do you know what a storybag is?
It is a brightly coloured cloth bag that is used as a visual aid as you tell a Bible story. It is turned inside out to reveal a different coloured interior. As the story unfolds the bag is turned inside out again and again to reveal different colours corresponding to the story. The final colour has a zipped pocket from which small objects can be produced.
