Aaron's Rod Turns into a Snake
The top picture is a picture of the back of a plastic snake I found at the Dollar Store. I found some larger ones and some smaller ones. When I tell the story, I use two larger ones connected together. I take the head off of one and the tail off the other. I connect the two snakes into one really long snake. When holding it beside me to look like a rod, I hold the head in my hand where they cannot see it. I make sure the kids see this back side of the snake so it looks like I have a rod in my hand.
When the story indicates, I toss the "rod" down and it curls up where the kids can see the snake side.
I purchase these smaller ones for the kids to take home. They aren't rod size for them but they do get the point across. They get a kick out of turning their "rods" into snakes.
(Sometimes I paint the back of the snake to look more like a rod, but it is not necessary.)Pin It
