Sunday Schoolhouse Series Activity - Green Unit C1
Lesson 5: Baby Moses in the Basket (Exodus 1:8 - 2:10)
Baby Moses Egg Carton Craft - Materials Needed:
- Egg carton - cut in individual units
- eggs (hardboiled or plastic)
- raffia (palm fiber strands) or Easter basket grass
- glue, scissors, yarn, markers and fabric
Cut up the egg carton so that each student has an intact section for their project. Have the children cut off bits of raffia and glue it to the inside of their egg carton section. Have the raffia stick up so that it looks like straw in a basket. Then have them decorate the egg to look like a baby, by drawing a face, wrapping its bottom in fabric and cutting and glueing bits of yarn for hair. Place the baby egg in the basket. Talk about how fragile and breakable an egg is. Then remind the children how fragile babies are, and why they need others to care for them. As God's children, we all need God to protect and take care of us.
Ice-Cream Pail Lid Review:
You will need ice-cream pail lids cut into rings and small index cards with various words written on them; such as: Moses, Miriam, Jochebed, Midwives, Babies, Pharoah, Hebrews, Reeds, Nile, Basket, etc. Place the cards around the floor. Each student tosses a ring trying to get it to circle one of the cards. The student then needs to ask a question that matches the "answer" on the card.
