STORY TIME

Gather children on a rug or in a specific area of the classroom to tell the story. Some children (especially the younger ones) may wander. That’s okay.

They’re still listening and learning!

W H AT Y O U N E E D : Preschool Bible and “Story Pictures” Activity Page copied on white cardstock

L E A D E R : “Hello, friends. I’m so glad to see you today. Come join me on the floor. Today’s true story from the Bible (hold up the Bible) is about a man named Moses. (Hold up the picture of Moses.)

“God sent Moses to help his people, the Israelites, get away from the mean king named Pharaoh. Moses told Pharaoh to let his people go, and finally Pharaoh did. Yay! Moses led the people out of Egypt and into the desert—

that’s a really hot, sandy place. (Hold up the picture of Moses and the Israelites in the desert.) They walked until they got to a big sea.

“But while they were walking, Pharaoh changed his mind and wanted God’s people back. So, Pharaoh sent his soldiers after them. Oh, no! God’s people were stuck between the big sea and Pharaoh’s soldiers! (Hold up the picture of Moses and the Israelites between the sea and Pharaoh’s soldiers.) But Moses knew how powerful God is. He knew God would help him and the Israelites. God told Moses to hold his staff over the water. Then, God made a dry path to walk through the water to the other side! (Hold up the picture of Moses and Israelites walking on the dry path in the sea.) Yay! God is awesome and powerful! Only God can make dry land in the sea because God is powerful.”

CRAFT TIME

Gather small groups of children around you at a table for toddler craft time.

Depending on the size of your group, you may lead the craft two or three times. Not every child may want to participate in craft time. That’s okay. Feel free to send home the craft materials for them to complete with their mom or dad.
