Jonah and the Whale Story Printables

Jonah is definitely one of my kids’ favorite scripture stories–they think it’s fascinating that Jonah was swallowed by a whale, and still live to tell about it!

One of our most memorable scripture times happened a few years ago–our oldest ones were about 3 and 1–and we had the “lesson” in the bathtub with a reenactment of the scripture account using Little People figures, and a large plastic whale. I think their favorite part might have been having permission to splash in the tub as we recreated the “storm.” For weeks after they wanted to haul their Little People to the tub and “play” Jonah every time they took a bath!

I’m pretty excited about the way this FREE scripture story printable turned out! I hope you will print and enjoy using it too.

    Thank you so much for posting these. I was so excited when I saw that you’d added another story. My little ones are loving these, even my 4 yo on the autism spectrum. Please keep them coming; you are blessing others.
