This is a small pile of some of the parts of the tabernacle. You can see that cutting them out does take a bit of time and patience. The item on the top is the table with the showbread.
Above, is the layout of the walls of the tabernacle. You will need posterboard for the base spanning 24"x 28". We used four pieces of poster board 11"x 14", taped together. We had to adjust for the slight difference in size.
The girls are putting the Ark behind the curtain (not pictured) of the Holy of Holies.
Everything is in place. The Holy place is layered with cutouts of the outer coverings (four, in all). Just inside of the Holy place, on this side of the curtain, you can see the Menorah, table of showbread and alter of incense.
This final picture is a little better view of the completed tabernacle. The whole thing took approximately 1.5 hours to completed, with the four of us working on it. It was a great time and we all learned a bunch. The kids came away with a good understanding of God's House in the wilderness. This is a great homeschool project and for anyone who teaches Sunday school. Use the link above and print all the pages you'll need. The rest is up to the kids. Have fun.
