Little Blots of Faith- Baby Moses Craft
This is a fun little craft where children can use their hand prints to make some bushy covering for baby Moses. Materials are minimal, and children of all ages can participate. Let children color baby Moses with crayons, pressing hard. Then with watercolors allow them to paint over the picture to fill in the river. Then trace their hands on green construction paper and cut out to make the reeds. Glue the bottom of the handprints over the basket, so they can peek in on Baby Moses.
