Bible Story: God Led His People
Bible Text: Exodus 13:17-22; 14:1-31; 15:1
Suggested Learning Outcome: This fun craft will help children learn about and remember the miraculous way God led His people out of Egypt.
- Half sheets of blue construction paper (2 per student)
- Whole sheets of white or brown construction paper (1 per student)
- Craft pompoms (several per student)
Teacher Preparation: Pre-cut blue construction paper in half sheets so that each student has two sheets.
Step 1. Give each student 1 sheet of white/brown construction paper and 2 half sheets of blue construction paper. Instruct students to cut fringes into one side of the blue sheets. Guide students in rolling the fringes around a pencil to create rolling waves (see image).
Step 2. Instruct students to glue their waves on top of the white/brown construction paper so that the wave sides face each other with a path through the center for the Children of Israel. Remind students that God prepared this path miraculously for His children (see image).
Step 3. Give students several craft pompoms and instruct them to glue the pompoms between the waves to represent the Children of Israel following God’s path through the Red Sea (see image).
