Bible story: Joshua and the defeat at Ai

Creative activities based on the Bible story of Joshua and the defeat at Ai

In Joshua 7-8, the Bible recounts the story of the Israelites' failed attempt to conquer the village of Ai. The reason for their defeat was traced back to Achan, who had taken riches from Jericho and buried them under his tent. It was only after Achan and his family were punished that Ai was successfully taken and destroyed.

To help teach children about the theme of 'The Battle for Ai', we have provided various ideas that can be easily incorporated into your children's ministry in the church, such as Sunday school, children's worship, catechism, or children's church. These ideas can also be used for biblical education in Christian elementary schools.
