Dear Danielle's Place, I teach Sunday school at a very small church. It is the only activity we have for the children in our church. I feel honored to be chosen to teach the class. I found your site a few months ago and ever since, I use it every week! Thank for having such inspiring ideas. I know "my" children are better off because of your site. Praise God, Brook Breed

 

 

Learn the Bible Verse Game

Sunday School Bible Craft baby moses bible verse game from www.daniellesplace.com

(Younger or Older Children) Before class print out the basket patterns (Available of The Resource Room) onto card stock.  Cut them out and glue the patterns back to back.  In class turn over all the baskets so that the side with the blankets are showing. Let your children take turns guessing which basket Baby Moses is in.  Play like the old shell game, mixing up the baskets while the children try to follow the one that Moses is in.  If a child guesses correctly, the next child takes a turn.  If a child is wrong, he or she has to say the memory verse and then try again until he or she finds the right basket. (This Game is available to members on The Resource Room.)

 

 

Play a "Find Baby Moses" Game

(Younger Children) Tell the children that you are going to play a game. One of them will be Moses' mother and she will hide Baby Moses. The other children will pretend to be the princess (if you would like you could have them wear crowns or make crowns to use in this game. You may be able to get crowns from Burger King). Send all the children out of the room except "Baby Moses' mother".  Help the child hide the baby. If you have a very small room and not many hiding places for a real baby doll, you can use the craft picture of Baby Moses and tape the baby under chairs and table and on the walls.  When the baby is hidden, call the "princesses in to find Baby Moses". Whoever finds the baby gets to hide him.  Play until every child gets a turn. If you think this activity will get too noisy, you can have a Baby Moses hidden before class and when activity time comes tell them to find the baby.

 

 

Pretend to be the Princess

Have the children wear the crowns they made and look for baby Moses which is hidden somewhere in the room.

 

 

Play a Sink or Float Game

Bring in a bunch of small toys and objects, some that float and some that don't. Pass out one toy or object per child, (Make sure when you pass them out that they know they can't keep them, if that is the case, or just pick objects that the children won't be interested in like pencils, nuts and bolts, etc.) Remind them that Moses' mother put tar all over the basket to make it float in the water before you start the game.  Call one child at a time and ask him if he thinks his object will float on top of the water like Baby Moses' basket or sink. Then let him or her drop it into a bucket of water to see if he or she was correct. 

 

 

Baby Moses in a Jell-O Cup

I made some blue Jell-O and put it in individual clear plastic cups. (This represents the river.) Next, I let the children squirt a mound of canned whipping cream on top. They pushed it down in the center with the bowl of a spoon. (This made the basket.)  Next, they put a green grape in the indentation (This was the body of the baby.) A banana slice made up the face of the baby. Finally, we added thin pretzel sticks around 1/2 of the edge of the Jell-O (These were the bulrushes.)  The kids really loved it and talked about it for months. All the moms had to go out and get blue Jell-O and all the fixings so they could do it again at home.

 

 

Sock Baby Moses

Sock Crafts for Kids www.daniellesplace.comI work with 3-4 year old children and they love the Baby Moses story.  For a craft we take brown paper lunch bags and cut them off about two-inches from the bottom so they look like little baskets.  Next I take some of my young son's old socks (cleaned and bleached!), stuff the toe area with cotton balls, give it a twist and then pull the ribbed area over the twist.  Thus we have the baby's head with a blanket.  I glue on doll hair on the toe area (doll hair from any craft store) before class.  Each child decorates his/her "basket" and then we use markers to make the eyes, happy or sad face and then they run the markers up and down the sock ribbing to make a stripped blanket.  We put our babies in the baskets and send them down the river (slide them down a table). Sent in by Trish Juranitch

*Directions on how to make sock babies can be found on the Sock Doll Crafts for Kids Page. When making them for young children, you can make them without the arms and legs and just have the children wrap a cloth around the baby.

Moses Sends Spies to Canaan

 

Grasshoppers and Giants! Bible Lesson

grasshopper craft

Moses sends Joshua and Kaleb and the other spies to check out Canaan - Sometimes we feel like grasshoppers in a world of giants like the spies sent to check out Canaan in this story. When we feel this way we should remember everything that God has done for us. He will give us the strength to deal with our fears and problems.

This lesson is available for Preschool and Older Children. This is part of the ABC, I Believe Series of Lessons that includes writing, cursive and print, and other activities. Crafts include a 3D paper grasshopper or a grasshopper made from an egg carton, or a color and activity sheet. Activities include making grasshopper cookies or a batch of grasshopper guts. Children will also enjoy playing Grasshopper Bopper with balls. Just draw a grasshopper face on the balls and have the children bounce the ball and say a word from the Bible verse each time it bounces.

I have been using your lesson and crafts for over a year now. I have never wrote to you before. But God impressed me to let you know how grateful I am. I don't know what I would do without your web site. I teach Sunday School to ages 3 to 5 year old. Our church is small and we have a very limited budget. I can always count on you to have something I can use for ever lesson I teach. The children love your crafts. Thank you for all your hard work. You are God sent. Respectfully, Kathy

I love your web site. I am teaching 4 & 5 year olds. I have taught Sunday School for years. I never really liked the teaching material but I used it because I wasn't sure where to get really great stuff. I found your web site when I was looking for a craft for Joseph and his coat of many colors. You have great ideas and have been a real blessing to me. I have taken your ideas and used them in my teaching. I also incorporated fannel graphs and other ideas that I have come up with. I think you have inspired my creativity and brought me a new desire to teach. Thank you for your ministry. Sincerely, Lynn S.
