They busily set about making an idol. (I brought all my play-doh tools/toys and let them create for about 10 min.)

This was Paul’s second missionary journey.
As he was in Athen’s he was upset to see “the city wholly given to idolatry” (Acts 17:16)
He came across an alter that had a sign on it “TO THE UNKNOWN GOD”. (Acts 17:23)
This was the perfect time for Paul to tell the people of Athens that we are all “offspring” of God. Since we are his offspring, “we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device”. (Acts 17:29)
