Noah's Ark Animal Parade

Playing games is a great way to bring to life a Bible story. Below are two versions for the story of the angels leading the animals to the ark.


Version 1 - Reading Version

Game board

  • Print onto coloured paper or card
  • Join all pieces together as shown right and glue onto a large piece (about A3 size) of card.  Decorate with stickers/pictures of animals.  You also may like to add small stickers/pictures of angels along the path to the ark.  Make a milk carton ark or use a picture of the ark to place at the finish line.

Situation Cards

Animals Markers

  • Print onto card one of the following animal templates (enough for eight children)
  • Glue animals back to back - except for tab which folds out to form a stand.
  • If there are more than eight children, print the b/w template onto different coloured card.
  • Alternatively, use plastic animals as markers.


My girls love the size of these large carton dice for playing games!

  • From a cube from a milk carton (see Creation Dice for instructions).
  • Cover each side with paper and place coloured dots on sides to form a dice.

Playing the Game

  • Each child chooses an animal as a game marker.
  • Decide who will begin the game.
  • Throw dice and move markers accordingly.
  • Whenever marker lands on an animal paw, child is to pick up a situation card and follow the instructions.
  • Game is finished when all the animals have reached the ark.

After the Game

  • Discuss together - who helped the animals find the way to the ark?


Version 2 - Pre-Reading Version

This game is designed to be played in conjunction with the Milk Carton Noah's Ark.  The purpose of the game is to collect the animals to place in their ark.

Game Board

Noah Markers

  • Print onto stiff card (enough for six children)
  • Have each child decorate and colour their own Noah.


  • Print out the animals above - enough for one set per child.  You may like to print out onto different coloured pieces of card

Playing the Game

  • Place Noahs at the start of the game.
  • Decide who will begin.
  • Throw dice and move accordingly.
  • As each 'Noah' passes an angel, they can choose and collect an animal to put in their ark.

After the Game

  • Discuss together - who helped Noah take all the animals to the ark?
