Samson Songs & Ideas

Two songs about Samson by Jeanne Dickson.

Thank you Jeanne for permitting me to use and share your songs!
Both of these songs have the standard one-page black & white song and the color flipchart.
Jeanne taught Samson to her 2's and 3's. Here are some great hand-on ideas that she did!

Some ideas are listed without photos because of ages of the students.

The beginnings of a city gate - cardboard box, duct tape and contact paper with a wood print.
 The finished city gate and frame. The door frame doubled as pillars. The pillars are made from some cardboard blocks that can be ordered from Amazon. They come flat and you fold them into blocks and create whatever object you want. Best investment I ever made!
Jeanne's students were carrying the city gate any way they could! The pictures were really cute with the kids struggling because of the size!

The young lion, which Samson fought. You can use any lion and let the students fight, wrestle, defeat the lion like Samson!
Dumbbells for the kids to test their strength.
Poor Samson lost his hair! 
This was an exhausting event!  I told the kids to just pretend to push them over, but some were a little too eager to push and I spent a bit of time putting them back together for the next child. If I'd had several sets to go around that would've been fine, but I just had the one set. So, be prepared!
