Craft for Water from the Rock

Water From the Rock

Exodus 17:1-7 (NIV)

17 The whole Israelite community set out from the Desert of Sin, traveling from place to place as the Lord commanded. They camped at Rephidim, but there was no water for the people to drink. So they quarreled with Moses and said, “Give us water to drink.”
Moses replied, “Why do you quarrel with me? Why do you put the Lord to the test?”
But the people were thirsty for water there, and they grumbled against Moses. They said, “Why did you bring us up out of Egypt to make us and our children and livestock die of thirst?”
Then Moses cried out to the Lord, “What am I to do with these people? They are almost ready to stone me.”
The Lord answered Moses, “Go out in front of the people. Take with you some of the elders of Israel and take in your hand the staff with which you struck the Nile, and go. I will stand there before you by the rock at Horeb. Strike the rock, and water will come out of it for the people to drink.” So Moses did this in the sight of the elders of Israel. And he called the place Massah[a] and Meribah[b] because the Israelites quarreled and because they tested the Lord saying, “Is the Lord among us or not?”

Moses Water from a RockThis diorama craft serves as fun reminder of God’s provision for the Israelites in the desert.  The Moses image is part of a set available for purchase from Charlotte’s Clips.  You can download the template for the diorama here.  Cut on the solid lines and fold on the dotted lines.  Add glue where marked.  Encourage the children to add blue sequins or glitter to the water.

Craft for Manna in the Desert

Manna and Quail

Exodus 16:11-18 (NIV)

11 The Lord said to Moses, 12 “I have heard the grumbling of the Israelites. Tell them, ‘At twilight you will eat meat, and in the morning you will be filled with bread. Then you will know that I am the Lord your God.’”
13 That evening quail came and covered the camp, and in the morning there was a layer of dew around the camp. 14 When the dew was gone, thin flakes like frost on the ground appeared on the desert floor. 15 When the Israelites saw it, they said to each other, “What is it?” For they did not know what it was.
Moses said to them, “It is the bread the Lord has given you to eat. 16 This is what the Lord has commanded: ‘Everyone is to gather as much as they need. Take an omer[a] for each person you have in your tent.’”
17 The Israelites did as they were told; some gathered much, some little. 18 And when they measured it by the omer, the one who gathered much did not have too much, and the one who gathered little did not have too little. Everyone had gathered just as much as they needed.

Manna DioramaThis craft helps the children remember the manna God provided for the Israelites during their time in the desert.  The background image comes from the Bread from Heaven book available from LambSongs Bible Story Books.  You can download the template for the diorama here.  Cut on the solid lines and fold on the dotted lines.  Add glue where marked.  Encourage the children to add seeds or grain in the baskets and on the ground.
