I hope you’ve been enjoying this 31 Days of Bible Crafts series! I know it’s been a joy to share all the kids wonderful projects with you and I hope that it helps in your own Children’s Ministry! Today, I’ll be showing you a few of the stations we did during a recent lesson about Moses. It was around Exodus 32 when the Israelites cross the Red Sea and then build the Golden Calf. Yikes!
Station #1 Salt and Glue Words
I had briefly seen an example of this project on Pinterest, but of course I didn’t take the time to click through and read all about it. On the project I saw, you could add water colors to the words to really make them pop, but it didn’t exactly work out for me!
For our station, we had the kids write out the words “One True God” with liquid glue and then cover it in salt. Once it dried, it was a terrific 3-D picture. I love that this can be adapted for any lesson or key phrase.
Station #2: Ten Commandment Rocks
For this station, I set out a bucket of rocks, a picture of the 10 Commandments from the Story Bible (Zondervan), and some markers. Kids were to pick a commandment and write in on a rock. They could also decorate the rock if they wanted.
Station #3: Moses Crosses the Red Sea Puzzle
I picked up this puzzle at our local Dollar Tree and it made for a terrific no-prep station during Children’s Church. The kids liked it and it could easily be a one person or group activity. Oriental Trading also sells blank puzzle piece sets, so you could draw your own scene if you have some artistic talent.
Station #4: Moses Crosses on Dry Land
This was actually a project from my kids Tiny Tots class (ages 2-3). I loved the fact that they made the “dry ground” out of sand paper. If you had some foam fish stickers, that would be a perfect touch to this project!
That’s it for now, but stay tuned for more ideas in the 31 Days of Bible Crafts series. If you want to get updates on facebook, be sure to follow Growing Kids Ministry!
