Retell the story of Noah in your own words. Use any or all of the following ideas.
Have the children name animals as you put them in the "Ark" or play a game of animal charades.
Float the ark. (If it is water tight in a tub or bathtub, if not, in the air or across the floor depending on the size)
Count forty days on a calendar or 120(if your children are old enough and depending on how high they can count. If they only know to 10 do it for times.)
If you have little army dolls or cowboys and Indians or you could even use game pieces (for example, risk pieces), pieces of paper with stick people on them to represent the people who are "swept of the earth" when the rain comes.
Have the children pantomime caring for the animals on the ark.
When the "Ark" comes to a rest, remove the animals. Have the children pretend to offer sacrifice (as long as they won't try sacrificing stuff on their own).
Draw or show a picture of a rainbow or use a prism to make a rainbow.
