Review the ten plagues God brought on Egypt. Write each one on a slip of paper and toss them into a bag or hat. Take turns picking a slip and drawing it on a white board (or piece of paper) while the others guess.

  1. Water, which turned to blood and killed the fish and other aquatic life (Exodus 7:14–25)
  2. Frogs (Exodus 8:1–15)
  3. Lice (Exodus 8:16–19)
  4. Flies (Exodus 8:20–30)
  5. Disease on livestock (Exodus 9:1–7)
  6. Boils (Exodus 9:8–12)
  7. Hail and thunder (Exodus 9:13–35)
  8. Locusts (Exodus 10:1–20)
  9. Darkness (Exodus 10:21–29)
  10. Death of the first-born of all Egyptian humans and animals (Exodus     11—12)

Pharaoh refused to obey God’s command to free the people from slavery, so He and the Egyptians suffered the consequences. Pharaoh may have thought he was in charge, but God always had a plan to deliver His people.

Splink 2:

Make unleavened bread similar to what the Jews might have eaten during Passover.

1 c. flour
3 Tbsp. sugar
1/3 tsp. salt
1/3 c. shortening
2—2 1/2 Tbsp. milk

Combine the flour, sugar, and salt. Cut in shortening. Add a little bit of milk at a time, and only enough to form in dough. Roll dough (using floured rolling pin) to 1/4” thick. Cut in 1/2” squares. Pierce it with a fork in long rows from top to bottom of each piece. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes until done. (There are many recipes online; this recipe was found at:


How did God save His people from death during the last plague—the death of the first born in each family? (Moses told all the people to kill a lamb and put its blood on the top and the sides of the doorposts of their homes. When the angel came through that night, he would “pass over” the homes of the ones who had the blood on their doorposts.)

God saved His people from death that night and freed them from slavery. God told them to celebrate the Passover every year and REMEMBER His power and love.

Why did God’s people, the Jews, eat only unleavened bread during the Passover? (The Jews did not have time to let their bread rise when they left Egypt, but leaven is also symbolic of sin. They had to rid their houses of all leaven (any kind of yeast) and eat only unleavened bread for seven days during the Passover celebration.)

*They ate other special foods—each full of meaning—during the Passover celebration.

Splink: 3

Draw pictures to express thanks to God for delivering us from our sin. Pass out paper and markers and ask each one to think about Jesus’ death and draw a picture to say thank you.

Why is it important to remember Jesus’ death? (So we can understand His great love for us; so we can say thank you; so we can share His love with others; etc.)

Why are you glad Jesus gave up His life for us? (We can have our sins taken away; we can go to Heaven; we can have a special friendship with Him; etc.)

The Jews celebrated the Passover to REMEMBER God’s power and love when He delivered them from slavery. God has freed us from a different kind of slavery—the slavery to sin. Jesus, the “Passover Lamb” took our sin, so we could be free.

We are to REMEMBER Jesus’ death—His great love and sacrifice for us. A special time we REMEMBER what Jesus did is when we take communion (Matthew 26:26-29). But we can REMEMBER His love and be thankful that He gave up His life every day so we can have eternal life.
