The Moses Bible stories are among the most-loved children's stories in the Bible! We learn so much about God's protection, power and love. God uses Moses in great ways to bring the Israelites out of bondage and to be their shepherd in the wilderness. God gave Moses great faith which showed in his courage many times throughout his life. God uses Moses to lead the people with great courage and patience. Bible Kids Fun Zone takes kids on the exciting adventures of Moses from the beginning of his life, growing up in Pharaoh's palace, fleeing to Midian, receiving God's call on his life through a burning bush, and leading the Israelites out of Egypt through the Red Sea and into the wildness worship their great God. They come to know their God better during all the trials of wandering in the wilderness for 40 long years. Bible Kids Fun Zone hopes to help the children know their God better also, by explaining a Name of God (in the Hebrew language) for each lesson. The Toddler lesson (an easier version of the Preschool lesson) does not contain the Hebrew name, only a very basic concept that the name means. For example, for lesson Four God's name is El Elyon, which means God is the Lord! He rules!

We also bring the stories up close and personal with color-illustrated story pictures, fun activities, and crafts that can be used in object lessons -- such as puppets, stand-up story pictures or visual aids. There are lots of activities as well, such as finger plays and rhyming verse, touch-n-feel pictures and lift-the-flap pictures to give children even more ways to participate in their learning. Choose from among several crafts for children to make and take home to play with. Children also like to use the crafts to retell the story to their parents or siblings. Children enjoy their time in Sunday school or their family devotional time with these playful lessons. They will likely remember the concepts when they are so involved in their learning. View the lesson pictures, craft pages and coloring pages below. All of the printables are accessed from the members' page ( along with all of the other themes) after you order Bible Kids Fun Zone.

All of the coloring pages come in color to use as story pages if you wish. If you want to save on printing costs, simply use the black and white story pictures and color them yourself, or recruit some teens to help you. Another idea, for a small class, is to just show the color-illustrated pictures on a laptop computer as you teach the lesson. (But keep children a considerable distance away to protect them from radiation exposure).

  Baby Moses Preschool Lesson and Toddler Lesson Overview and Activities for Children
 

The Baby Moses lesson is packed with lots of activities to help children really get a sense of what it was like for baby Moses and his family, and how God worked in their lives. One option is to teach the lesson as an object lesson with a tub of water. We show you how to make the baby Moses basket craft float. The Lily pad craft also floats. Using these props, the children get to see up close how scary it was for baby Moses, and how God protected him and brought him to safety. If you just want a quick lesson without the floating baby Moses basket and lilies, you can just use the black and white or color story pictures. A third option is to use the stand-up Bible pictures so you can set up Miriam behind the tall grass where she watches Baby Moses "float" down the Nile River (Lay down some blue paper and draw waves for the river). One more way to tell the story is to act it out using dolls. Just using the method you are most excited about will probably get the children excited to learn also.

We have lots of other fun activities to help children participate in their learning: Part of the lesson is a rhyme - one for age 4-5, and an easier one for age 2-3. There are hand motions for the rhyme if the children want to join in and help tell the story of Baby Moses. We also give you ideas for another activity for age 2-3 using the baby Moses craft (pulling it on a string). With all of these fun activities that help children get involved, they will surely remember the story and learn the simple concepts of the lesson: That they are precious to their Maker, just like Moses was; For age 2-3: God watches over them wherever they are; and for age 4-5: God has a great plan for their lives, just like he did for Moses. Besides these activities, we provide craft activities for the children to make, as well.

 

  Moses the Shepherd Sunday School Lesson, Crafts and Activities for Children
 

The Sunday school lesson about Moses as a shepherd is based on Exodus 2:

This lesson continues to paint a vivid picture of the character of God and how he relates to his children, as begun in our Creation lessons. Children learn how God loved his people and had a great plan to bring them out from Egypt where they were slaves. But God needed someone to lead them. His plan was to use Moses. God prepared Moses for this big job: Moses became shepherd for sheep for his father-in-law after he got married. One day soon Moses would shepherd the people of God and lead them out of Egypt. Children learn how God was preparing Moses for this big job. They also learn that God also has a great plan for their lives and will prepare them for some big jobs as well. The verses used in this lesson are: Colossians 3:23 and Jeremiah 29:11. The key concepts are: God had a great plan for his people; God helped Moses be a shepherd; God will help you with your jobs too. Children are encouraged to participate in the lesson by running with Moses (in place) to Midian, finding Moses, resting at the well, pretending to be sheep, running with the girls back to their father. There is a touch-n-feel tactile activity, a guessing activity and a sharing time for chidlren to share their thoughts.

Here is an excerpt from the lesson:

Let’s pretend we’re with Moses. Let’s run with him. (Run in place). I’m getting tired! How about you? I think Moses ran faster than us. I wonder where he went? Here’s a string.  Moses is at the other end.  Let’s follow the string to see if we can find him.(Encourage children to stand up and run in place with you for a few seconds.).

There’s Moses! He stopped to rest at the well in the town of Midian. He thought that would be a good place to get a drink of water and rest. Let’s so back to our seats and rest too. (Give the children the string and help them follow it.)

Moses and the Burning Bush Sunday School Lesson, Crafts and Activities for Kids -

Forgetful Moses!

  Moses and the Burning Bush - Sunday School Lesson Overview for Preschool lesson and Toddler lesson:
 

The main lesson concepts for the Bible story of Moses and the burning Bush are: God wants us to remember who he is; God is patient when we forget; and God helps us when we don't feel brave. This fun lesson uses the Moses puppet again, and also has two additional "3D" burning bush crafts for you to use to tell the exciting Bible story of when God speaks to Moses through the burning bush. The children will relate to the concepts of the lesson, as all people will, since we all are forgetful at times. Moses forgets who God is and he forgets who he is, as one of God's precious children. Children learn that God is patient with Moses, just as he is patient with us. God patiently endured Moses' endless questions and fears; and answered him by showing him the miracles he would do through Moses and his brother Aaron. God reminded Moses how powerful he is, and gently taught Moses that he could be brave when he put his trust in God. God would be his strength. God provided him with a helper to the big jobs that he had in mind for Moses to do. Then Moses obeyed God in everything, with God's help. There are fun activities, crafts and stickers to go with this lesson.

Bible Kids Fun Zone gives you ideas for each plague to choose from so you can choose what you know will work well for your class. Here are a few ideas below for how to use the Plague toys and crafts. Use an inflatable snake for the pre-plague miracle that Moses and Aaron perform - where God turns the staff into a snake.

The First Plague: The Plague of Water Turned into Blood The Second Plague: The Plague of Frogs The Third Plague: The Plague of Knats

Release the Foam GliderBugs - Glue Yuk Faces (Week 4 printable craft page) on 3-4" balls to create the plague of blood. Release this plague into the middle of a circle of children. Have helpers on hand to clean up the plague when God takes the plague go away.

Inflatable Frog Beach Balls - Get a dozen jumpy frogs from Oriental Trading. Kids will have a blast trying to capture these funny frogs, just $15 per dozen:

Leap Frog TM Learning Friend: Tad - for toddlers. Then release a plague of Jumpy Frogs (craft provided) on toddlers for them to capture or green balls with frog eye stickers on them.

Stick Yuk Faces on brown bals, or other colored balls, or use the Glider Bugs Gnat Craft provided.. Release the lice or knats into the middle of the circle of preschoolers. Let children push them away or capture them. Then show them how to place them in a basket to take away when God takes them away through Moses.

The Fourth Plague: The Plague of Flies The Fifth Plague: The Plague of Disease on Livestock Animals The Sixth Plague: The Plague of Boils

Stick Yuk Faces on black balls, or other colored balls, or use the Glider Bugs Fly Craft provided.. Release the flies into the middle of the circle of kids. Show children how to swat them away. Then show children how to help you clean up the plague of flies by putting them in a basket or box after the flies all die.

Place stuffed animals in the middle fo the circle of children laying down for the "Egyptian kids", and upright animals in the center of the "Israelite kids" circle. You could also have stick horses for the Israelite kids to ride to show that their animals were just fine!

Make Boils by gluing the Yuk Face Stickers (provided in download) to pink or red balls, or other colored balls. Show children how to push away the boils. You could also make round paper boilds for the kids (who aren't too grossed out) to stick on their clothes (with rolled up tape).

Th Seventh Plague: The Plague of Hail More Bugs! The Eighth Plague: The Plague of Locusts The Ninth Plague: The Plague of Darkness

Take wads of white paper to pour into the middle of the circle of children. You can also make hail stones by gluing our Yuk Face Stickers onto white, gray or blue balls that you dump into the center of the circle of children.

Use the Glider Bugs - Locusts Craft provided. Release the locusts into the middle of the circle of children. Another option is to glue Yuk Face stickers on green or brown balls and dump into the center of the circle of Egyptian kids. Show children how to capture them, then toss them in the basket for quick clean up when God takes the locust plague away in the wind.

Glue Yuk Face Stickers onto black balls to dump into the middle of the circle of Egyptian kids. The Israelite kids can help capture them and toss them into the box for clean-up when the darkness goes away. Another option is to have someone be "Darkness". They dress up in a black sheet with eyes cut out. The darkness can grab at the kids or tickle them.

The Tenth Plague: The Plague of the Firstborn / The Passover

The group of "Israelite kids" get to paint a door (a box) with washable red paint. Don't worry, this plague will be innocuous for preschoolers and explained it in a way that's not scary, like the plague of livestock, we said the animals got a disease and got sick.
