The story of the Israelites' escape from Egypt, as told in the Biblical book of Exodus, culminates in the miraculous parting of the Red Sea. Make Red Sea crafts to accompany your Sunday school or church lesson on this portion of scripture. You can prepare the projects ahead of time or let your students work on the crafts during your lesson.
Parted Red Sea
This kid-sized "Red Sea" lets kids pretend to walk through the parted waters just like Moses and the Israelites. Cut off one side of a refrigerator box and use a utility knife to cut "waves" on the top of two sides. Paint the sides and bottom of the box blue and sprinkle sand along the bottom to represent the dry ground on which the Israelites crossed. Have kids help you paint and decorate the "Red Sea" with plastic fish and paper seaweed. To keep the box together, use ribbon or twine to attach the box to two lines of chairs.
Red Sea Paper Craft
Cut two pieces of blue construction paper to resemble waves. Draw a picture of Moses and the Israelites on a plain sheet of paper. Attach the waves to opposite ends of the white paper with a hole punch and brads. You should be able to rotate the "waves" so that they appear to part in the centre, revealing your drawing of Moses and the Israelites. Kids will enjoy creating and playing with their own "Red Sea" replica.
