The Plague Of Locusts

Posted on Updated on

Today’s crafts are based on the eighth plague on Egypt, the plague of locusts.

“13 So Moses stretched out his staff over the land of Egypt, and the Lord directed an east wind on the land all that day and all that night; and when it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts. 14 The locusts came up over all the land of Egypt and settled in all the territory of Egypt; they were very numerous. There had never been so many locusts, nor would there be so many again.15 For they covered the surface of the whole land, so that the land was darkened; and they ate every plant of the land and all the fruit of the trees that the hail had left. Thus nothing green was left on tree or plant of the field through all the land of Egypt.” Exodus 10:13-15

This craft can be done for different bible stories and adapted for each one. It is very versatile. It can be used for:

  •  Teaching children the story of Noah. (Genesis 6-9) You can add a branch to the birds mouth for this story.
  • Teaching children when Jesus was baptized. (Matthew 3)
  •  Or you can teach about who the Holy Spirit is.

If you have any other ideas about what other bible stories this craft can be applied to I would love to read them in the comments section.

Instructions

  1. Print out the templates. (Template)
  2. Cut out the body, the wings and the feathers.
  3. Snip each individual feather around the border of the feather. (For a nice effect, before snipping the feathers, crumble them up, then snip each individual feather around the border).
  4. Then glue the feathers onto each wing. (Eight on the bottom and six on the top).
  5. Glue the wings to the body.
  6. Finally color in the beak. If the child chooses he can draw on the feet.
