Kids Bible Lesson 11 - Escape from Egypt
Welcome to week 11!
Last week the girls learned about Baby Moses. This week the story continues as God speaks to Moses and tells him the plan he has to free his people, the Israelites, from Egypt.
In this powerful Bible story, the children learn that God is in total control over every situation and has the ability to protect us from harm. Have fun with this great lesson!
If you haven’t read the introduction to Bible Time yet, I recommend you read the outline about the Bible lessons for children first.

Bible Story Tips
We read “The Escape from Egypt” beginning on page 21 of the children's Bible Storybook called Bible-Time Stories and Rhymes.
During story, draw attention to the key concepts for this lesson.
Don't forget to ask questions related to the story, for example, “What did God ask Moses to tell Pharaoh?”
The girls learned that God is in control and that we should not harden our hearts to him.
After the Bible story and discussion session, we stand up and do the interactive rhyme found in the Bible storybook.
After the story and rhyme, we say a prayer that is related to the Bible story. You can either have your children repeat after you or allow them to come up with their own prayer.
Bible Song about the escape from egypt
The Bible song for this week is "Pharaoh, Pharaoh".
We cast the song from YouTube to the television, so our children can see the motions on the big screen.

the Escape from Egypt bible coloring Page
While our daughters colored the Escape from Egypt Bible Coloring Page, we talked about how the miraculous way God led the Israelites out of Egypt.
My daughter Allie, added a personal touch by drawing our whole family leaving Egypt.
Crossing the Red Sea bible Craft
This was a fun craft that showed that girls how God helped his people safely flee from Egypt.
We talked about how God opened the Red Sea, so the Israelites can escape their enemies.
We reminded the girls that God can protect us from our enemies.
- This Bible craft can be made by cutting out parting water using blue construction paper and the sand using brown construction paper, as well as a Moses figure.
- Next, have the children glue the water on both sides of Moses standing on the sand
(We used the “Crossing the Red Sea Bible Craft” found in the Bible Time Family Fun Pack.
Burning Bush Bible craft Activity
Moses had a miraculous experience when God spoke to him from a burning bush. He asked Moses to tell Pharaoh to free his people.
- We did a fun activity where we created the appearance of a burning bush using a paper bag, bush cutout and a candle.
- Try the Burning Bush Bible Activity for toddlers, to help remind the children that God is in control.
The Amazing Water Trick Bible Activity
Just when the Israelites thought they were trapped and had nowhere to go, God miraculously parted the Red Sea. This fun Bible activity will amaze the children by showing them how to separate pepper with their fingers.
You will need: a bowl, water, pepper and dish soap.
1. Put water into a bowl and sprinkle pepper evenly on top of the water.
2. Stick your finger into the water to show the children that nothing happens.
3. Put a drop of soap on your finger and dip it into the water. The pepper will separate and move to the sides of the dish. (Just like the Moses parted the Red Sea Bible activity.)
4. Let the children try the trick on their own.
I explained to the girls that God is in control and there’s nothing too hard for him to do.
Plague Finger Puppets
Pharaoh hardened his heart when God asked him to let his people go. This resulted in God’s sending ten plagues to Egypt.
We explained that hardening our hearts to God results in negative things happening.
- The finger puppets represent the ten plagues that fell on Egypt. Go over each plague with the children. Warn the children of ways we can harden our hearts toward God. (Like not trusting in Him)
- You can use the Scrambled Plagues Bible Game to create the plague finger puppets for this activity.
- I reminded the girls not to harden their hearts to God.
Scrambled Plagues Bible Game
This was a fun game that helped the girls get familiar with the plagues that were sent down on Egypt and their sequence.
While using the Scrambled Plagues Bible Game, I reminded the girls that that we should listen to God if he asks us to do something.

We finished up the week recapping this week’s Bible story about the escape from Egypt and its miraculous events.
