Photos for Storytelling:
Free Bible Images has a series of illustrations that can be used to tell the story of the passover and exodus from Egypt: http://www.freebibleimages.org/illustrations/moses-plagues-2/. You can print off large copies, or put the photos in a PowerPoint presentation. (We did a post on ideas for using the free Bible images website.)
Props for Storytelling:
Rod – to demonstrate that they needed to have their staff in their hand to be ready to leave (also shoes, but I will assume that you already have those 🙂 ).
Unleavened bread – crackers to show how the bread didn’t rise because they needed to leave in haste.
Bitter herbs – parsley is a good option.
Puppets – print and use lamb and young child puppets for telling the story (template is in the post intro).
Sensory or Movement:
Have them paint the doorway with blood (paintbrush and water), and then eat bitter herbs with a rod in their hand and ready to go at any minute!
“The Ten Plagues” (to the tune of “This Old Man”)
Have kids glue precut door onto paper. Have them color the doorposts red, and draw happy people inside. They can draw stars outside and grass, as they so please. Glue verse at the bottom.
Puppet coloring! Using crayons or markers color precut child and lamb puppets before gluing them onto popsicle sticks (template is in the post intro).
Unleavened bread (crackers).
