Your kids will use simple materials in order to create their own ark of the covenant.
While your kids are making their very own ark of the covenant, go over why the ark was built, its purpose and significance.
- Print the template on card stock or construction paper. (Template)
- Color and cut out the ark of the covenant template. Skip the coloring step by printing the template on gold construction paper.
- Glue yellow colored popsicle sticks onto the template. You can also paint regular wooden popsicle sticks yellow using markers or paint.
- If you desire, decorate the ark of the covenant using glitter.
This craft is a great visual of the first plague in Egypt. Your kids will be able to see the water of the Nile River turn to blood for themselves.
“20 So Moses and Aaron did even as the Lord had commanded. And he lifted up the staff and struck the water that was in the Nile, in the sight of Pharaoh and in the sight of his servants, and all the water that was in the Nile was turned to blood. 21 The fish that were in the Nile died, and the Nile became foul, so that the Egyptians could not drink water from the Nile. And the blood was through all the land of Egypt.” Exodus 7:20-21
- Print the templates onto regular copy paper. Do not use cardstock. Print the main image on one side, then the river on the other side of the same paper. (Template)
- Lay one or two sheets of newspaper on your table.
- Have your kids color in the land, sand, pyramids, mountains and sky using markers.
- Next lightly color in the river with a blue color pencil.
- Trace the outline of the river with regular glue and allow the glue to dry.
- When the glue has dried fill in the river on the back with a red marker.
- In a small plastic container add about 1 teaspoon of regular cooking oil (vegetable, olive, canola).
- Using a small brush have your kids paint over the blue river with the oil. A little oil goes a long way. As the oil is absorbed by the paper the red marker will start to come through. The river will start to turn into “blood”.
- With a paper napkin wipe of any excess oil from the front and back of the paper.
God appeared to Moses in a burning bush and told Moses He was sending him to Pharaoh to bring Gods people out of Egypt. Moses had many objections to God’s plan. He was fearful of Pharaoh rather than trusting in God. Four times he expressed his fear to God. When Moses expressed his lack of faith a fifth time, God became angry. Although God was angry with Moses, He had compassion on Moses. He understood Moses weakness and told Moses that He would send Aaron with him.
“The Lord said, “Moses, when the king asks you and Aaron to perform a miracle, command Aaron to throw his walking stick down in front of the king, and it will turn into a snake.” Exodus 7:8-9
- Print out the template. (Template)
- Cut out all of the pieces.
- Trace them onto construction paper. For the rod use brown. For the snake your kiddos can be creative.
- Assemble the snake and cut of any overhang of construction paper so you are left with a perfect snake shape.
- Glue the rod onto a piece of cardstock.
- Cut it out leaving a small white border.
- Then glue on the snake.
The kiddos can also draw on wood designs onto the rod if they choose.
