God makes a way (day 15)

We read the story of Moses and the Red Sea, beginning on page 92 of the storybook Bible. This story is found in Exodus 14-15. After reading it the kids got to choose what they wanted to do. I thought it would be fun to act out the story using play-dough for the sea and toothpicks for the people. However the option of using stamps was too appealing for them. They covered a paper with any stamp they wanted. The goal was for them to be blue to look like the water when they were overlapped. They did not stick to blue so we got pretty rainbow water. After they gathered some sand/dirt outside, they glued it down the middle of the paper to be the ground the Israelites walked on down the middle of the parted sea.

the point? God saves his people, sometimes in unusual ways
