Play Through the Bible – Nehemiah
Our “Play Through the Bible” activities for Nehemiah were pretty simple. We basically just read the story of Nehemiah in the Children’s Bible, watched a couple movies on YouTube, and then pulled out the kids’ toy tools and blocks and got them busy building a wall like how Nehemiah did.
Nehemiah Activity Book
Here is a simple activity book I created to go with our Nehemiah lesson. Some of the pictures are ones that I gathered from different sites across the web – I have listed the original links below to be sure to give credit to the right sources.

Nehemiah Rebuilds the Walls of Jerusalem. The Share Faith Kids website has a set of children’s Bible story resources for the book of Nehemiah, including a video narrative of the story, a picture PowerPoint if you wish to tell the story yourself, and also printable activity sheets for kids. There is a membership fee to access all the resources on their website, however they do allow you to have 4 sets free to “try it out” . . . or, if you don’t mind the logos on the video and aren’t planning to use the activity sheets, you can just watch the videos directly on their website!
