makingfriends.com- Moses and the Parting of the Red Sea craft
A great bible story to teach during Passover.
Crossing the Red Sea- Bible Story Wheel (Bible Wheels to Make and Enjoy by Carmen Sorvillo, page 19 & 20.)
Introduce game: What did Moses do at the Red Sea so the Israelites could escape from the Egyptians?
lds.about.com- Red Sea Troubles (color and black and white versions)
This is a very unique file folder game, because the Red Sea actually parts and then Moses and the children of Israel can escape from Pharaoh and his soldiers.
Moses Crossing the Red Sea Game- A fun and simple board game for younger children reviewing the story of Moses from his birth to parting the Red Sea. (Super Bible Game Book by Linda Standke, page 60 & 61 for game board and page 55 for directions).
Crossing the Red Sea
Materials: Bed Sheet
Directions: Two adults hold the four corners of the sheet as it rests on the floor in front of the children. The children line up single file at one side of the sheet. The first child in line will play the part of Moses and stretch out his hand. Once the first child in line has stretched out his hand, the adults will quickly raise the sheet high above their heads. As the sheet parachutes above them, the children will run under the sheet to the other side. If children are under the sheet when it comes down, they are out of the game. Have children take turns being the first one in line and playing the part of Moses.
Introduce snack: What did Moses do so the Hebrews could escape from the Egyptians? Parted the Red Sea.
missionarlington.org- A fun snack idea is to split a banana into two pieces lengthwise. Put blue Jell-O on each side to illustrate the water. In the middle add crushed graham crackers for the dry land. Enjoy! (page 4)
