WATER NIGHTLIGHT

 
 
Have you ever been curious about what water creatures come out at night? If so, here’s a way you can find out with a special waterproof nightlight you can make yourself. You’ll want to do this activity when you’re spending the night close to a river, lake, pond, marsh or ocean.
 

Supplies:

  • Flashlight with fresh batteries
  • Self-sealing plastic bag
  • Clear container with lid (big enough to hold your flashlight)
  • String
  • Something heavy, like a rock

Directions:

  • Turn on the flashlight, place it in the plastic bag and seal the bag.
  • Place the bag along with the rock into the container. Put on the lid.Make sure the lid is tight and the container is sealed well.
  • Tie the string around the top part of the container, making sure the string won’t come off.
  • Stand or kneel on a dock or just on the bank and hold on to the string.
  • Lower the nightlight into the water. Check out what critters are attracted to your light. If you want, you can use a net to scoop out a critter or two, but be sure to put the critters back after you are done looking at them.
Bible Lesson
There are some things in nature that we can’t see. Most animals are active at night when we are sleeping. There are also some other animals that are just too small for us to see. But, when we get to heaven, everything in nature will be open to our understanding. There will even be animals there that we didn’t know existed. We will be able to study animal behavior like never before. And the wonderful thing is, we have all eternity to get to know all the wonderful creatures Jesus created.
