Isaac and the Stars Decorated Biscuits

This is a fun activity we will be doing with our children on Sunday when they look at the story surrounding the birth of Isaac.  Food crafts always go down well but this one is also a reminder of what God has earlier said to Abraham.

Then the LORD took Abram outside and said to him, "Look up into the sky and count the stars if you can. That's how many descendants you will have!" Genesis 15:5

You will need: plain biscuits (Rich Tea or Digestive are good), icing sugar, water, star shaped sprinkles, Jelly Babies

Make some thick icing out of the icing sugar and water and spread some of it over a biscuit.

Sprinkle on some stars and then place a Jelly Baby on top.

Talk about: What is your favourite part of the story?
Who is your favourite character?
How would you have felt if you were Isaac's parents?
What is a promise?
What does it feel like the someone keeps their promise?
Do you wonder anything about this story?

Thank God for our families and then eat the biscuits!
