Exodus 12 has your kids learning about the Pharaoh who wouldn’t let Moses and his people go. The plagues came and as horrible as they were, that Pharaoh was stubborn. Finally, Moses told Pharaoh that God would kill the firstborn in each family. And that is exactly what happened, except not to the Israelites. The message from God to them was to paint the blood of a lamb over their door. Then, their firstborn would be spared and they were.
Kids need to know that they can trust God and His promises. This craft is just a visual reminder of that promise.
- One paper per child Exodus 12 13
- crayons, glue, scissors
- one brad per child
- one piece of red paper
- something to cover the table with
Have the kids color the branch, door and person. They can then cut along the dotted line and cut out the branch and cut on those dotted lines too. Cut the red paper into paint and glue along the top and sides of the door frame. Finally, take the brad and poke through the dot on the branch and poke it through the paper where the hands should be. Fasten it loosely so the branch can move back and forth.
Remind kids that God is faithful. It may take time and not always be ‘fun’, but He knows what He is doing and will see us through!
