Inspire children about the story of baby Moses by featuring his story from the Bible. The story depicts a time when Egyptians were killing all the first born male Hebrew babies because the Pharaoh's prophet told him a deliverer would rise up and bring down the Egyptian empire. Moses was spared from this killing because his mother put him in a basket that floated to an Egyptian princess. Once the Egyptian saw the baby, she immediately began caring for him and raised him. You can also teach lessons about the story and read directly from the Bible before beginning the craft. Incorporating different activities with the craft can help children remember the meaning of the story.
