“If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and He will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand. But even if He does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.” ~ Daniel 3:17-18

Song: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego
(sing along!)

 Three good men lived very long ago — Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego.

To an idol they would never bow — Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.

To a fiery furnace they were therefore cast; Nebuchadnezzar thought they’d never last.

But God was there; He’d never let them go — Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. 

Stage 1: Gather the needed supplies listed above.
 

Stage 2: Cut an oval hole in the front of the bag, you do not need to cut through the back of the bag.

Stage 3: Cut out pieces of paper (either different colors or color them after), make the tops points in different heights to look like flames. You will need a few for in the front hole and for the top of the bag as well.

Step 5: Glue some flames to the inside of your bag in the oval cut out on the front of the bag.

Step 6: Glue the rest of your flames to the inside of your bag at the top of the bag.

Step 7: Glue your Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego to the front of your bag so that it looks like they are in the flames.
