Hi,

Do anybody have a good idea to illustrate 1 Kings 17 about the widow, the jar of flour and the jar of oil?

Greetings,

Lota for the oil.

I use short ventriloquist routines about stories such as the one you mention.

At our church the preschool uses the books from Discipleland

I adapt the puppet versions for one or two characters..where they are written for more traditional puppet plays.

I am not associated with discipleland

just got acquainted with their books at our church.

Shalom,

Harris

I have used the 6 bill repeat for that illustration. Perhaps a square-circle or any box that can be repeatedly shown empty, then filled again.

I was thinking Square Circle as well, Smile but a three way change bag would work too. I've never done a routine on this part of scripture, but like Wes said, anything you can show empty, and then filled again would be one way to illustrate it.

Use a lotta bowl for the oil and use a square circle but get some white aquarium sand to re present the flower. Sand won't make the mess. After you show the square circle empty, use a ladle to scoop sand out of the loaded area.

I may be incorrect on this, but this passage may have been illustrated in Now That's Magic! #7 at http://www.ChristianMagician.org

I've used a lotta bowl for the oil before, but I've been racking my brain for something for the grain. The square circle idea is interesting, but I use that prop for a different illustration. Does anyone have any other suggestions for the grain? I know the lotta bowl really got the attention of the kids I work with. If you're looking for something really authentic looking, check out the Ever Fill Jug that FAB Magic sells. It looks like it's made of clay or earthenware of some sort. You could really imagine it filled with oil in the widows house. It is a bit pricey for me, but it looks good. I don't work for FAB or anything, but the owner is a nice guy. Very helpful and I have always been happy with the their stuff. Again, I would really love some other suggestions for the grain.

Ditto on the rice bowls..

Has anyone used the new plastic ceiling lids for a custom bowl? I have been thinking about trying that for a while.

There are many silk effects that could work well for you as well as sponge ball tricks that could work for the grain. You would just need to make the props look right to match the grain idea, ie. paint a pic on the silk or cut the sponge to look like grain... I like the sponge idea where you would multiply the sponges in a childs hand. I have done this with around 20 sponge balls at the end.

Lota bowl works best with the story of the widow and her sons. The bill collectors were going to take them away and God caused the oil to multiply so they sold all that they could and the debt was paid. I act this one out with the kids playing different roles, it's funny but has great teaching value.

I have used the lota bowl to illustrate this story for 40 years now. And the oil (water) is still flowing - haha

Hello everyone,

Some time ago I was in Rio.
Friends of us live there and do ministry work in the favela's.
Heavy and risky work!

While visiting the children in the favela's,
we did the 4 card repeat of David Williamson,
to tell the story of the never ending oil.
It works VERY well.

So, thank you all, especially Wes, for the inspration!
