Your preschool classes respond well to crafts and activities which they can associate with the lesson. Create your Sunday school fun zone to teach the lesson of Moses escape from Egypt using these discussions, crafts, games and song.
Tell the story of Moses leaving Egypt in a language that this age can understand. Be sure that it is a simplified version; the verse selection is Exodus 12: 31-42 and 13:17-22. There are several picture versions in children’s Bibles that are appropriate.
Discussion: God will lead
The Israelites were in a hurry to leave, so they couldn’t get their food ready. How do you think they felt? How did God let them know that he was with them? Sometimes God wants us to do something that seems scary at first, but He will be with us.
Song: Jesus loves the little children.
All the children of the world.
Red and yellow, black and white,
They are precious in his sight.
Jesus loves the little children of the world.
Activity: F R O G (Fully Rely On God)
Using brown lunch bags, have students make a frog puppet to remind them to fully rely on God. Have eyes and a tongue copied and cut for the students to glue on. You may also want to type a label for the students to glue on the frog as to what F R O G stands for.
Game: Out of Egypt
Before the start of class, label the seven areas the Israelites traveled to. Bring the students on a journey from Egypt to Israel!
The start is Egypt,
5. The desert road
