Bible Connect: Exodus 1 – 2:10
Best for Kindergarten and up
Prepare: Make sure to have a medium to large open space. Have the children line up in a straight line facing all in one direction.
Do: Talk to the kids about waves and imagine the basket with baby Moses going down the river. Imagine the basket going up and down the waves of the Nile river. In this activity, the basket is going to over their head to the person behind them; then they run back to the end of the line. The person with the basket now passes it between their legs, then runs back to the back of the line.
So the basket goes over then under, over then under, and with the kids going to the back of the line, this activity can keep going all over the room.
Some extra ideas: 1) Lead the kids to the storytelling area. 2) Time the kids 3) Put a baby doll and make sure they don’t drop the baby
Talk about: Did baby Moses know about God’s protection? How did God protect baby Moses? How can God protect us today?
If you have any additional ideas, let me know. I did this activity with 4s and 5s, and it was doable. It took awhile to explain, but when it got going, the kids really enjoyed it.
