Make a Thankful Quail Paper Plate Craft

Use this little quail to hold the Bible verse or have the children write things they are thankful for on pieces of paper and place them into the quail's belly. Tell them that they should take the pieces of paper out of the quail's belly and read them often to remind them about everything God has done for them.

What you will need:

Orange, Brown or Tan Balloons

Orange, Brown or Tan Paper

Markers

Tape of Elmer's Paper Glue

What to do:

1. Before class prepare some balloons to look like quail. (Make sure you make at least one per child.)

2. Draw faces on the balloon with a black permanent marker and tape or glue on wings cut from construction paper.

3. In class remind the children about the part of the story where God sent a wind that blew thousands of quail from the sea into the Israelites' camp. Tell them that they are going to pretend that they are the Israelites (but not the ones that were whining) and that God is going to send a wind to blow in some quail. Tell them to get ready to catch them. Throw the balloons up into the air one at a time. If a child catches one, have him go sit back in his seat with the balloon. Keep throwing up balloons until all the children have had a chance to catch one.

Play Catch Quail Game

If you have butterfly nets, you can have the children try to catch the balloon with the nets.

Play a Relay Game with the Balloon Birds

Before class make some bird catchers. Staple plastic or Styrofoam bowls on to the end of a paint stick or rolled up pieces of newspapers. Have the children line up into teams. Give each team a bird catcher and a bird. Have them place the bird in the bowl. On the word go the children should carry the bird in the catcher to the other end of the room around a chair and back to the start line, and then give the catcher with the bird in it to the next team member. The next team member does the same thing until all the team members have had a turn. The team that finishes first wins. If the bird falls while a child is walking, he should stop and pick it up. He cannot travel until the bird is in the catcher.

Play a Bible Verse Review Game

Before class print out the quail patterns and make a copy. Write one word of the Bible verse on each quail plus the Bible reference, color them and cut them out.

Member's Bible verse game

In class hide the quail around the room. Have the children look for them and bring them to you as they find them. See if they can figure out the correct order of the words.

(These patterns can also be used as learning activity. The children can use the quail at home to review their Bible verse. Or you can put them in the "Thankful Quail" so that it looks like it is holding them.

Picking Up Manna

You will need a large bowl, a large spoon, cotton balls, and a blindfold. Tell your children that they are going to pretend to be Israelites, but they are blind. Place the large bowl out in front of one of the students, and place the cotton balls "manna" around the bowl. Hand the spoon to the child and put a blindfold over his eyes. On the word "go" he should try to pick up as many cotton balls with the spoon as he can and place them in the bowl. He may not feel for the cotton balls with his hands. Give each child a turn and see who can pick up the most cotton balls in a certain amount of time.

Play a Board Game to Review the Lesson and Study the Bible Verse

Moses Bible Verse and Bible Lesson Review Board Game

 

Before class prepare the board game using 20" x 30" foam core board. Each color represents a different day of the week.

Member's Moses Bible verse game pattern

Before you start point out the pictures in the center of the board.

See if your children can figure out what each picture represents. Tell them that each pictures represents something that God did for the Israelites.

Remind your children that instead of complaining about the manna, the Israelites should have been thanking God for everything he had done, and was doing for them.

Also point out the seven different colors of spaces and tell them that each color represents a different day of the week. Explain that the Israelites had to go out each morning and pick up manna to make the food they would eat that day. Show them the last set of spaces and tell them that each space in this set has the word "rest" on it because that was the Sabbath and the Israelites could not pick up manna that day. They had to pick up twice as much the day before.

Show them the manna you cut out and point out that each piece has a word from the memory verse. Go over the memory verse pointing out each word. Place all the manna words in the middle of the board.

Children will start at the first day of the week and take turns throwing a die and moving the correct amount of spaces. If they land on a word, they should find the word on one of the manna pieces in the middle of the board. If they land on a space that says, "Eat 1 or 2", they must put one or two pieces of manna back in the middle of the board. If they don't have any pieces, they don't have to do anything.

You can play two ways: One, the child who spells out the whole Bible verse first with their manna wins. Two, the child who collects the most manna after going around the board once or twice wins.
