I told the story of the 10 commandments from the Jesus Storybook Bible for a group of ten 4-8 year olds.
Before the story the children made their own little Moses which they each had in their hands during the story too. They used him like a puppet to act out the story as I told it - holding him up high when Moses climbed the mountain etc.
I got the template from "Sunday School Crafts" which has a lot of fun, free resources like this so check it out! All the kids had to do was colour him in, cut him out and stick him onto a toilet roll insert (you could use rolled up card if you don't have TP inserts but the thicker the card the better).
The children loved the finished product.
|How cute is he!|
I wanted to something to give the children an idea of what the tablets Moses would had would be like so I made these super easy little props which the children took turns holding up for the others during story time.
|First I cut out the shape I wanted from a cereal box|
|Then I scrunched up some baking paper / grease-proof paper|
I un-scrunched the paper and stuck it on to the card.
|Then I wrote the commandments on with a sharpie.|
