Show and Tell ~ Parting the Rea Sea

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?

Blessings, Dawn


  1. What a great way to remember this awesome story!

  2. What a lot of fun. It sure makes the stories more memorable to have fun with them

  3. Yeah !!! I love how learning spills into play and life. [0= It means that it is sinking in and becoming part of them. I loved seeing your parting of the Red Sea and Moses,and the covering of the soliders. And for the girls to play the scene of finding Moses in the bullrushes. NEAT.

    God is good all the time. All the time God is GOOD.

    Blessings and ((HUGS)) in Him<><
