Abraham, Sarah, and Lot Tent
Make the tent first so it has a chance to dry.
1. Cut out both pieces of the tent
2. If you have the black and white version, color the tent pieces -
suggestion that the both roof pieces are the same color, but it really

So Abram went up from Egypt to the Negev, with his wife and everything he
had, and Lot went with him. Abram had become very wealthy in livestock
and in silver and gold. From the Negev he went from place to place until he
came to Bethel, to the place between Bethel and Ai where his tent had
been earlier and where he had first built an altar. There Abram called on
the name of the Lord. Now Lot, who was moving about with Abram, also had
flocks and herds and tents. But the land could not support them while they
stayed together, for their possessions were so great that they were not able
to stay together. And quarreling arose between Abram’s herders and Lot’s.

south, to the east and west. All the land that you
see I will give to you and your offspring forever. I
will make your offspring like the dust of the earth,
so that if anyone could count the dust, then your
offspring could be counted. Go, walk through the
length and breadth of the land, for I am giving it
Trace Lot’s wife as a pillar of salt onto cardboard, cover the cardboard with glue
and lots of salt and a little glitter too.
Explain how God told Abraham he was going to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah
because of their great sins, and how the angels went into the city and took Lot
and his wife and their two daughters out of the city. Then explain how they told
them not to look back as they ran away, and how the cities were destroyed, and
how Lot’s wife looked behind her, and was turned into a pillar of salt because
