The children had a great time reenacting the parting of the Red Sea. Little Tom Sawyer was Moses and the girls were escaping slaves. The Big Teen volunteered to be an Egyptian soldier swallowed by the sea. We set up chairs with blue sheets and blankets. The kids then colored in fish and put them on the blankets. For my kids, the most impressive part of the movie, Prince of Egypt, is the scene where the sea is parted and the fish are swimming in the walls of water. While they were coming up with their play, they wanted me to rewind that part repeatedly.
Our little Moses
Walking through the parted sea
The sea closes and the soldiers are stopped!
The girls have also been putting "baby Moses" into a plastic tub and pushing it up and down the "Nile River" during bath time. Don't you just love it when "school" overflows into playtime?
