Tell kids to: (Read the Scripture.)
*God took care of and protected Moses. (Give each child a
Hershey’s Kiss.
) Let’s imagine that this candy is Moses.

*Moses’ mother knew Moses was in danger, but she trusted God to
protect her child. She made Moses a unique, watertight basket. Wrap
a roll tightly around Moses. Make sure your “basket” is tightly

*Moses’ mother placed Moses in the river and asked God to protect
him. Float your basket in the melted margarine. (Have kids roll
their dough in the margarine and remove with a spoon.

*God placed Pharaoh’s daughter next to the river. She felt sorry
for the baby in the basket and had the basket pulled up onto the
sandy shore. (Dip your basket into the cinnamon-sugar

*Pharoah’s daughter took care of baby Moses in her home. Place your
baskets on a cookie sheet. (Place the rolls in a 350 degree oven
and bake for about 15 minutes.)

Talk teasers: As children are eating their “Moses
in a Basket,” *ask: Do you think God loves you as much as he loved
Moses? Why or why not? How has God protected you from harm? When do
you need God’s protection?

Let’s thank God for protecting us every day.
