Paul – Shipwrecked on Malta!

When my son saw the prototype for this craft on my desk, he said, “Mom, I don’t just like this craft… I LOVE it!” 

Children love to role play and use their imagination. This crafts helps facilitate the amazing, adventurous story of Paul being shipwrecked. From being visited by an angel, being in a storm at sea for 14 days, being shipwrecked, and making their way to the island of Malta, getting bitten by a poisonous snake and surviving, and in Jesus’ name heal the locals!  


What you'll need:

  • Printer + paper
  • Scissors
  • Craft Knife
  • Glue
  • Sticky tape
  • short stick (like a toothpick, cocktail stick, etc)

Child Involvement:

  • Create craft and play through the scene



  • Print 1 page per craft. 
  • Cut up pieces.
  • Fold the background piece so the grey rectangles are flat on the table and the sky is 90º to the table. 
  • Fold the waves so the grey rectangle folds behind the wave. 
  • Match the rectangles by numbers and glue waves to background. 
  • Tape a short stick to the back of the ship.
  • Adults only! Using a craft knife (stanly knife), cut a slit behind the middle wave, leaving a thumb size space at the edges.
  • Done! Now you can insert the boat (from the top, not bottom), and have fun imaging this incredible story. 
  • NOTE:   I use this paper from Amazon** which I use for ALL my crafts because it’s a bit thicker than ordinary printer paper.
