The Old Testament book of Exodus refers to the Ark of the Covenant as a golden box, topped with two golden angels, which housed the tablets containing the 10 Commandments. Creating a model of the Ark of the Covenant is an appropriate activity for church or temple students or as a religious craft created in your own home. Creating an Ark of the Covenant will help bring the biblical story alive for young students.

Glue the lid down on a small jewellery box.
Paint the entire box and lid gold and allow to dry.
Glue the braided, golden yarn around the side edges of the box lid.
Paint both sides of each craft stick gold and allow to dry.
Glue a craft stick to each long side of the jewellery box, below the edge of the lid. The craft sticks should be horizontal, not straight up and down, along the side of the jewellery box. Since the craft sticks will usually be longer than the box, the ends of the craft sticks will protrude past the edges of the box, which is fine.
Trace the angel stencil twice onto the card stock, or freehand draw two angels. Cut out the angels.
Paint both sides of the angel cutouts gold.
Glue the angels to the top of the box, facing each other.
