The Plague On The Firstborn

Posted on Updated on

Today’s crafts are based on the tenth and last plague on Egypt, the plague on the firstborn.

“4 Moses said, “Thus says the Lord, ‘About midnight I am going out into the midst of Egypt, 5 and all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of the Pharaoh who sits on his throne, even to the firstborn of the slave girl who is behind the millstones; all the firstborn of the cattle as well. 6 Moreover, there shall be a great cry in all the land of Egypt, such as there has not been before and such as shall never be again.” Exodus 11:4-6

    I was wondering how you were going to do this topic and you did it in a classy way with no gore for the dead firstborn. I especially like the tissue paper blood over the doors!
