I am still working on supplementing our church’s curriculum for the unit on Solomon.  It is so intriguing to read about the building of the temple–how all the stones were pre-cut and no tool could be heard in temple while it was being built and all of the ornate materials used .  Since the temple was so magnificent, I didn’t want the children to build it with plain old building blocks.  It needed to be something extra special…hence building with golden blocks!

 

“And Solomon overlaid the inside of the house with pure gold, and he drew chains of gold across, in front of the inner sanctuary, and overlaid it with gold.  And he overlaid the whole house with gold, until all the house was finished. Also the whole altar that belonged to the inner sanctuary he overlaid with gold.”  -1 Kings 6:21-22

 

Here’s what you’ll need:  wooden building blocks and gold spray paint.

I purchased two sets of these blocks to make sure there was enough for a group of kids.

 I laid them out on some plastic and then painted them with gold spray paint.  I let them dry for an hour, then turned the blocks and painted again.  All-in-all, I turned the blocks a total of four times.  Enough overspray got on the remaining two faces of the blocks that I didn’t need to spray 6 times.
