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 also. 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 (in place) 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 follow the string and see if they can find Moses). 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.

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 has two "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, one of God's precious children. Children learn that God is patient with Moses, just as he is with us. God lovingly and 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: Aaron, his brother God showed Moses the miracles he would do in front of Pharaoh. And, Moses obeyed God in everything, with God's help.

Activities and Crafts for the Moses and the Burning Bush lesson: You can see thummbnails of the craft pages below. Be sure to see the free 3D burning bush craft. The other activities for the burning bush lesson for preschoolers include making playdough snakes as a warm-up activity, snack ideas, a fun rhyme for kids to follow along with hand motions, and a Group Activity: Question and Answer time for kids (We don't usually havea Q&A, but it fit well with this lesson).

Review of Moses Bible Stories:

Last week we heard the true Bible story of how God did mighty acts in the land of Egypt to show everyone his great power! He showed them that he is the Lord! God loved his people, the Israelites. The Israelite people were slaves, and the Egyptians ruled over them! But, God loved his people, and he had a great plan to bring them out of Egypt. Then they wouldn’t have to be slaves any more.  Do you remember what slaves are? (Let children answer). Yes, slaves worked hard for just a couple pennies. And they would get beat up by their mean slave masters. Can you pretend to be a slave master and make a mean face? (Make a mean face and encourage children to join you.) R-r-r-r-! Ooh. You look scary! Very good.  

(Moses and Aaron puppets, Pharaoh picture) God picked Moses, and his brother Aaron, to speak to Pharaoh, the king of Egypt. They did everything just like God told them to do. They went to Pharaoh and asked him to let the Israelite people go, so they could worship God in the desert. Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh over and over again, to tell him everything God told them to say. They said, “God said to LET MY PEOPLE GO!” But Pharaoh kept saying, “NO, I WON’T! NO!” And God kept doing mighty acts in the land of Egypt so that Pharaoh and all the people would see his great power up close!

Bible Sticker Play Activity:  Review of First Five Plagues

(Plagues Chart with plagues 4-9 covered). Here are the plagues we saw last week: (Point to blood plague). First the river turned icky blood-red! The people had no water to drink. (Point to Plague 2: Frog). Then frogs came and jumped all over the Egyptians! I think a few hopped over to the land of Goshen, too, where the Israelites lived. (Point to Plague 3: Gnats). Who can tell me what this is? (Let children answer). Yes, it’s a gnat. Millions of little bugs, called gnats, came and bothered the Egyptians. Maybe a couple flew over to the Israelites too. Even after all that, Pharaoh was still stubborn. He would not let the people go!
(Hold up Egyptian and Israelite Children). Let’s use these pictures of children again to see what other mighty acts God did! This boy is an Egyptian. He lives in the land of Egypt, (Point to Egyptian child). This boy is an Israelite. He is one of God’s people! He lives close by in the land of Goshen. (Point to Israelite child).
Do you remember what came next? (Hold up Fly sticker. Let children answer). Yes! Flies were all over the land of Egypt. (Let children place flies on Egyptian Child picture). But look at the Israelite boy.  There are no flies bothering him.  Do you remember why? (Let children answer). Right! God protected his people from the flies.

(Place sick animal by Egyptian Child). What’s this? (Let children answer). Yep! It’s a sick animal. A disease came, and all of the Egyptians’ animals got sick. (Let child put happy animals on Israelite Child picture). But the Israelites’ animals were fine! See how happy they look? God protected the Israelites’ animals. He made sure they didn’t get sick.

(Remove animal stickers. Uncover plagues 4 and 5). Let’s count how many plagues were there so far. ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE! Pharaoh was still as stubborn as ever! When will that Pharaoh guy listen…never? Next, God told Moses and Aaron to take soot from the furnace, and toss it into the air in front of Pharaoh.  So that’s what they did.  (Pretend to throw soot into air).  Woosh!

Plague 6. Boils. (Let children help you stick boils onto the Egyptian Child while you tell the rhyme).

Rhyme: The soot turned into a very fine dust. The people got boils that blister and crust. The people felt itchy, and they felt disgust! Pharaoh, let the people go! Soon he must!

The Egyptian people were all itchy and miserable! (Point to Egyptian Child). (Whisper) But the Israelite boy doesn’t have any itchy disease! (Point to Israelite Child). He feels just fine! God protected the Israelite people again! (Remove boil stickers. Point to pictures on chart as you count).  Let’s count the plagues now. ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE, SIX!
Do you think Pharaoh might listen to Moses now? (Let children answer). Nope! He was still stubborn. Once again, Moses and Aaron obeyed God: They told Pharaoh, “God said, ‘Now I will send my plagues in full force!’ Uh-oh. Next a really bad storm came! Do you know what hail is? It’s big chunks of ice! (Show children with hands how big an 8” ball is). Here’s what happened:

Plague 7. Hail. (Let children stick the hail onto the Egyptian Child picture as you say the rhyme).

Moses stretched out his hand, up to the sky. (Hold your hand out in front). Giant hail came down, from heaven on high!

There was thunder and lightening Boom, BOOM! BOOM! Over the land of Egypt there was fear and gloom!

The hail destroyed everything that it crushed. Flax and barley turned to mush!

Some of the hailstones were as big as balls! Whisper) But in the land of Goshen, there was no hail at all!

The Egyptians were very sad! All their plants and trees were ruined! (Whisper) But look at the Israelite boy.  He’s doing just fine! (Point to Israelite boy). God protected the Israelites from the terrible hailstorm too! Then Moses prayed to God, and the hail stopped.  (Remove stickers. Point to plagues on chart as you count). How many plagues are there now? Let’s count. ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE, SIX, SEVEN! When the hail stopped, do you think Pharaoh would let the people go now? (Let children answer). No! He would still not let the people go!
Aaron and Moses went to Pharaoh again and said, “God says, LET MY PEOPLE GO!” This time, Pharaoh told Moses, “O.k.” They could go worship God in the desert… but only the men could go – not the women or children! What?! No, that doesn’t sound right! Moses told Pharaoh that all the people will be going, the men, the women, and the children too!  So Moses stretched out his hand again. (Hold hand out in front).

8. Locusts. (Let children help you stick the locusts onto the Egyptian Child picture as you say the rhyme).

God made the wind blow all day and night. Thousands of locusts came! Oh, what a sight!

The locusts came by God’s mighty act! They covered all of Egypt ‘til It looked black!

The locusts ate the plants; the fruit trees too! isper) But no locusts were found in Goshen! Yes it’s true! (Nod yes).

Then Pharaoh asked Moses, once again, to pray. ‘Get rid of the locusts! Make them go away!’ (Wave hand away).

So Moses prayed, and the Lord took the locusts away in the wind.  (Remove locust stickers. Point to plagues on chart as you count). Let’s count the plagues again! ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE, SIX, SEVEN, EIGHT! Now do you think Pharaoh would let the people go? (Let children answer). Nope. Moses obeyed God again. One more time Moses stretched out his hand toward the sky.  (Stretch out your hand).

9. Darkness. (Place black sheet of construction paper over the E Child picture. See instructions above).

This time God sent the darkness of the night! It was completely dark – not one bit of light!

The Egyptians couldn’t move or walk or play. (Whisper) But the Israelites still had the light of day! (Let child place sunshine on Israelite picture).

For the Egyptians, it was like they were blind. Pharaoh said, “Go! But leave the animals behind!”

But Moses told Pharaoh, “No, that won’t do! To worship God, we need animals too!”

So Pharaoh got really mad! He told Moses, “Get outta my sight! And don’t come back!” Moses told Pharaoh, “O.k. I will never come back again!” Let’s count the plagues now. (Remove Darkness. Point to plagues on chart). ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE, SIX, SEVEN, EIGHT, NINE!
There’s one more plague that would come on Egypt!  And next week we’ll see what the very last plague is. Right now let’s have a snack. Then we’ll talk about God! After that we have some fun crafts and activities.

Talk Time: Let’s Learn One of God’s Names: Jehovah Shammah!

In our Bible story, we saw that the first few plagues came on the Egyptians, and also on the Israelites. The river turned icky blood-red. A few gnats and frogs came on the Israelites too. But then God wanted to show the people something. He said to Moses: (Read Exodus 8:22). God wanted to show everyone that he was right there with his people, the Israelites, so he did something different with them. When Egypt was covered with flies and locusts, there was none on the Israelites! (Shake head no). While the Egyptians were itching their skin (Pretend to scratch your skin), they Israelite children were playing and having fun!  They were healthy!  The Egyptians had thunder and lightening, and giant hailstones! Boom! Boom! But, there was no storm in the land of Goshen, where God’s people lived.  (Shake head no). When the Egyptians had darkness for three whole days, the Israelites had sunshine! God was showing everyone that he was right there with his people. And he was helping them!

We’ve been learning some of the names of God. Just like we sometimes have other names, God has other names too. One of God’s names is Jehovah Shammah. Let’s say that together. (Repeat Jehovah Shammah with children). It means ‘The Lord is There’!  God was there with his people when the plagues came. He didn’t let the worst plagues come on his people. 

Did you know that God is with us too?  Here’s a great promise that God gives to all who love him: (Read Psalm 91:15).  We have an awesome, loving God in heaven who cares about everything that happens to us! We don’t have to be afraid. God promises to be right there with us when trouble comes. And, he loves to help us! When we pray, God hears our prayers and helps us! Let’s pray to God now and thank him for being right there with us when trouble comes.  

Let Me Pray Prayer Time

Prayer Sample: (This is just an example of what you could say. Listen to the Holy Spirit and say the words he gives you). Allow the children to pray afterwards if they wish to. Dear God, Thank you for being our awesome God who can help us with anything! You are so mighty and strong! And you are so loving and kind! Please help us remember to call on your when trouble comes. Thank you for hearing our prayers. And thank you for being right there with us and helping us when we need your help. In Jesus’ name.

Ideas for Classroom Plagues and Skit – Part I and II - Printable PDF for Skit ideas and Prep

The plague activities will create a “big mess”, and will require some prep time, but it will be well worth the effort, and a memorable experience for the children. You will need help preparing and “administering” the plagues. Actors: Narrator, Moses, Aaron, Pharaoh, Pharaoh's men, Egyptians (Children), Israelites (Children), Assistants to toss inflatables or balls to the center of the circles of children. The Actual Classroom Plagues Skit is available with purchase.

You can keep it simple, skip the costumes, and just administer the plagues with a short intro before each plague to warn the children of what’s coming, or you can go all out with the costumes and use the skit as is, to give the children more of a chance to participate. In doing so, they may gain a better understanding.

Other ideas: If your allotted class time isn’t enough to do the Classroom Plagues during Sunday School, you could use them during your mid-week meeting. You could put toddlers and preschoolers together if you have a big enough room.

Options: You can use the Classroom Plagues and Skit after each Plagues lesson, or after Week 5 (Part 2).

Prep: Review lesson, activities. Decide which kind of plagues you will make (Balls, inflatables, crafts, toys, etc.). Enlarge Yuk Faces on copier for inflatable balls or draw your own with a marker. (See Craft instructions for other Plague Sticker instructions). Prepare plagues.

Safety tip: Make sure balls and other objects and toys are at least 3” for age 2-3. Small ones are choking hazards. Use Glider Bug crafts for only children age 3+.

Bible Costumes (Optional): Moses, Aaron, Pharaoh. Costumes for children in your class: Israelites, Egyptians. (Doing a search on Google images or Yahoo images for “Egyptian bible costumes for kids”, etc., gives you some good ideas for how to make them.

Reminder: Please remember to screen all assistants working with the children and use only use trusted workers, since they will be working closely with the children.

Overview of the Preschool Lesson - God is Faithful! He Brought His People out of Egypt!

Plague of the Firstborn / Passover Preschool Lesson

The Passover lesson for preschoolers is full of fun activities for children. They will have a great time pretending to be the Israelites who plunder the Egyptians and march of Egypt with their staffs and bread, and their "coats" tucked in. They also paint around the doorframe (either on the craft page or a doorframe on a cardboard box house (if you want to make one). Bible Kids Fun Zone is not just about fun. We make sure that children get solid bible concepts to lay the foundation of their faith. For the Passover lesson, children will learn these important Bible concepts: The Lord is faithful. He does what he promises; A name of God is El Hanne ‘Eman, which means 'Faithful God"; and God wants us to remember the great things he does. Here's a printable snapshot of the Passover Sunday school lesson so you can view the activities included in the Passover bible lesson, and see how a typical lesson is set up.

There are more Passover activities for children besides the activities that the children do during the passover lesson. (See below). View the craft pages below. There are free printable craft pages for you to use with your class, such as the Doorframe Passover Craft (see below). Kids can color the door frame, then paint red splotches around it, to be the "blood" of the lamb. There is also a free Passover Bible Picture and coloring page for you to use for your lesson: Two types of bread: Bread with yeast, and bread made with no yeast. The other printables (for members) include Gold and silver articles (cups, vases, wine glasses, etc), for you to cut apart and give to children when they plunder the Egyptians (Have some helpers dress up as the Egyptians); as well as an Israelite child dressed and ready to go before the Plague of the Firstborn came to Egypt. Bible Kids Fun Zone made the lesson inocuous for preschoolers. We didn't include all the details. Children may get upset if they learn what the plague was exactly without understanding the justice of God. We tell them that the plague came on the oldest child of every Egyptian family, without telling them that the children and animals died. As they get older they can learn more. They will get that God kept his promise to his people and brought them out of Egypt, and then they didn't have to be slaves any longer. (We tell them what that means in a very simple way also).

Passover / Firstborn Crafts for Preschoolers (Including free crafts)

Members can use the Gold and Silver Articles printable pages shown below for fun easy classroom activity for preschoolers. The Bible Kids Fun Zone Passover lesson shows you how to have the children pretend to be the Israelites. They get ready, then they ask the Egyptians (some assistants dressed up) for their gold and silver jewelry and items. Then they get rich! You can also make a paper version of the foam bracelets (below) for younger children. Just tape strips of gold wrapping paper to their wrists, and off they go. See lesson overview above for more fun Passover activity ideas from the lesson. There is also a sticker craft. Kids stick the lamb and unleavened bread stickers on the Passover Plate and color the stickers and Passover bible picture. See the other bible story printables used for this lesson below.

Passover Preschool and Toddler Activities

(Printable page of Passover activities for preschoolers)

Warm-up Activities: Let’s Make Play Dough Bread!

Show children how to make small loaf of bread (shaped like bread with yeast). Show them how to shape flat bread without yeast (like a pancake) and explain why it’s flat.

Passover Snack Ideas

Note: The children will not be having a New Testament communion service, as they do not yet have the understanding that Jesus is our ‘Passover Lamb’. (1 Cor. 5:7-9, 11:27-32). They are just acting out the story so they get the basics of what happened. It will “click” later for them as they grow and learn more.

Snack Ideas (Pretend Passover meal): Wrap their “bread” in napkins and place in paper bags. Unleavened Bread: Pita bread with butter and jelly, Saltine crackers, or graham crackers. Lamb: Chicken fingers, chicken nuggets or meatloaf. Vegetables: Cucumber, carrots celery, or apple slices. Safety tip: Always check with parents for kids’ food allergies before serving.

Passover Room Decorations

Bulletin Board Decoration Idea: Use the Passover Supper picture, Doorframe picture or other pictures to decorate your classroom bulletin board. Also see Painted Door Frame below.

Classroom Activities and Skit (Pretend Play Activities)

Children pretend to be the Israelites during the Classroom Passover Activities. They paint the Door Frame craft page together, eat a pretend Passover supper, get ready with their staffs and bag of bread, and receive gold items before they go. They march boldly out of Egypt and come back for a rhyme with actions and Talk Time. (See lesson for details).

Painted Door Frame

(Optional) Classroom Doorframe: Decorate your classroom door for the Passover lesson. Tape butcher paper up around doorframe. Paint splotches on the paper using kids’ washable paint (top and sides of door). Alternatively, cut out “paint splotches” from red construction paper.  Use rolled nonstick masking tape those up. Israelite House Doorframe: Another idea is to use a large box (refrigerator size) to make an Israelite house. Draw a wooden doorframe. Cut a door and windows, and let children paint on the top and sides of the door.

Cardboard Staffs and Passover Pretend Play Activities
Cut 2” strips of cardboard. Bend at ends to make curved shape. Make one staff  per child. Clothing with sleeves to use as coats to tuck in belt or tie on waist, and extra clothing for the Egyptians to give them.
