Animals in the Bible: Creative activities for your children's ministry

Animals play an important role in many stories in the Bible. They are used to teach lessons, symbolize certain qualities, and provide practical assistance to characters in the stories. For example, the story of Noah and the ark teaches about God's care and protection, while the use of donkeys by Balaam and Mary shows humility.

Children's workers can use these stories to teach children about God's love for all creatures and the importance of treating animals with kindness and respect.
