The Confession of St. Peter
Jesus Finds a Solid Rock
Florists' foam makes great rocks.
It needs no carving tools: the pointed and eraser ends of ordinary pencils work best. The finished rock may be covered with spray glue and sand (ordinary from the beach, colored from craft shops), but the children seem quite satisfied with the rock-colored green the foam comes in.
They can be quite creative in what they carve: Peter's name, various Christian symbols like crosses or fish, a symbol the disciples often used.
Work on newspapers for the crumbs, but if you avoid the glue and extra layers of sand, this is a very simple and not very messy project.
