You will need to show kids your sample craft.

Red Sea Crossing Sunday School Craft

 

You will need for each child:

  • 1 copy of Red Sea Crossing Craft Printable
  • 1 empty tissue paper box (rectangular boxes made for at least 200 sheets work best)
  • Construction paper: Brown and blue
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • 1 magnet
  • 8 paper clips

 

To Make the Red Sea Crossing Craft

For the Red Sea:
1. Remove the plastic sheet covering the opening of the tissue box so that you can put your hand inside. If the opening is too small for your hand, cut to enlarge it.

 

2. Place the tissue box on its side with the opening facing you.

3. Cut a piece of brown construction paper the same size as the top of your box.
Paste it on the top of your box. This forms the dry land.

4. Cut a piece of blue construction paper the same size as the top of your box.
Then cut it lengthwise such that one piece is slightly wider than the other.

Cut another piece of blue construction paper the same size as the wider piece.

You should have 3 pieces of blue construction paper:

5. Cut slits on the blue construction paper, leaving about a ½ inch margin uncut:

(It’s ok if you accidentally cut all the way through. You can paste the separate pieces side by side on the top of the box later.)

 

6. Gently roll each small strip to form a wave:

3. Insert 1 paper clip on each side of the base. The figure should be able to stand on its base.

Play a Game With Your Red Sea Crossing Craft

1. Place an Israelite on one end of the dry land.

2. Hold a magnet in your hand and place your hand inside the tissue box.

3. Use your magnet to move the Israelite from one end to the other.
If necessary, roll the waves back so that they don’t block the way of the Israelites.

4. Repeat until all 4 Israelites have crossed the Red Sea.

5. Have a race! See who is quickest in helping the Israelites cross the Red Sea.
