Welcome to Little Hands to Heaven Unit 7. This week we are on Letter F and learn about Young Moses in Egypt. We also start learning about the 10 plagues in this unit – just in time for the Spring Holy days of Passover and Unleavened Bread! We cover the final plague and Exodus in Unit 8.
~Bo is 3 years, 3 months~
Art Activity ~ Baby Moses
Baby Moses hidden in a basket behind the green grass. (I used this printable).
Bible and Math Activity
Building blocks symbolized the bricks the Israelites were forced to build for the Egyptians. It was also a good test of Bo’s patience.
Here he is telling me about his building and the various hiding places he built into it.
“Baby in the basket
Float, float, float”
Masking tape letter F, and a baby in a basket.
Bible Activity and Dramatic Play
Acting out the story and caring for baby (combination of Day 2 and Day 3 of the guide).
Letter Activity ~ Hide and Seek F
For those wondering what Mali and Elli are up to today – Elli is working on her writing, and Malachi is doing online math. This is not our regular preschool time today, but Bo wanted to do school, too!
Edible Moses Basket
This is not in the manual, but I’ve been trying to come up with an edible craft each unit. We made shredded wheat treats (like rice crispy treats, but with shredded wheat) to make a basket.
Bo “sweeping up the mess” with his hands.
Number 7 page for Bo’s 1-10 Counting Book. 7 shoes symbolize when Moses took his shoes off on holy ground.
Bo is putting on some baby fat, or so it seems to me in those last two pics. He looks so sweet and chubby to me.♥
Burning Bush Craft
(Tissue paper on contact paper)
The lesson was to make soap bubbles and then add food coloring to turn the Nile into “blood,” so I waited for a sunny day and made a big tub of bubbles. I let them play with the clean bubbles before adding the red food coloring.
Then, I let them put their hands in it, and the color turned their skin red, so I quickly had them stop playing in it, which only helped with the object of the lesson, I suppose!
