Moses goes before the Pharaoh multiple times demanding he let the Israelites go. He did this in the name of God, “Let My people go, so that they may serve Me.” Exodus 5:1; 7:16; 8:1, 20; 9:1, 13; 10:3
Pharaoh refuses to let the Israelites go. Moses warns Pharaoh that God will punish Egypt, but Pharaoh continued being stubborn.
As a result, God casts ten plagues upon the Egyptians. The ten plagues were a divine demonstration of God’s power and judgment designed to exalt God and force Pharaoh to “let my people go.”
This craft about the ten plagues of Egypt would be a great add-on to any Sunday School lesson. You can always use the craft to re-tell the Bible story after your kids are done making it.
This craft will require some prep work.
To make this craft easier to do you can use stickers for day 2-5 and 8. For day 9 you can use large googly eyes. And for the last day you can paint on a thin line of red paint across the number ten, then slightly tilt the number and allow the paint to slowly drip down the number.

- Cut them out and glue them onto the designated number.
- Cut off any overhang of construction paper from the numbers.

- Cut out the numbers. If you like you can leave a small white border around each number.
We can be very stubborn when we want to do things our way. Many times this happens when we are doing something wrong.
This craft will help the kiddos remember to always listen to what God says and not be as stubborn as Balaam. And like Balaam’s donkey, to always speak up when it comes to standing up for God’s truth.
