The story of Cain is of a man whose hands need to transition from working the earth to building a city.

At heart this is an extension activity that can be turned into a creative activity, and independent station activity, or used as a substitute for a worksheet or colouring page.

The download PDF gives the paper version of Cains hands, but the idea can be adapted using real fruit / vegetables and stones, or play food and bricks.


Cain and Abel
This simple worksheet is designed to be done in groups, though could be done with a child working alongside an adult. The worksheet discusses the key topics of Talent, Anger and Mercy. First through questions then though a discussion on responses to anger. There is also a spot the difference activity.

This craft is also the talk, it tells the story of Cain’s family but in a small book format they can take home and read themselves or have an adult read it to them.

Essential Teachers notes:
Today’s story is written as a fable, the grandson of Cain – Irad – comes to him and asks him to tell his story. This story is a little longer than usual, taking just over 5 minutes to tell. make sure younger children are comfortable.
Start by gathering the children in a circle and asking them if they know the stories of their family history. Perhaps give one or two children a few minutes to share something about their family history.

Main Passage : Matthew 27, Luke 23, John 19, Mark 15.


Cain is both the hero and protagonist of this story and we are concentrating on him. These games therefore are supposed to lead to conversations of consequences, protection, and grace.

Under the flag – Take as large a flag as possible for this activity, a sheet connected to a broom handle with safety pins will suffice. Have the children stand in a circle around the flag bearer. wave the flag above their heads, slowly get lower and lower, then higher and higher. If the flag touches you then you are out.

Marble run – give each participant a tube, cardboard, pod noodle, taped paper etc. the idea is that the children transport a marble safely through the various tubes. Either round a circle or with fewer children across a room.
