Moses' Special Staff
Thanks to Jennifer for sending this in!

I am a preschool teacher; my class is made up of kids 18 months to 3 years. I thought I'd pass on this idea I had that worked wonderfully with my class. Learning about any Bible character who carried a special staff (Moses and Aaron, for example) leaves room for this craft.

You need: 

  • 2 paper towel rolls per child
  • several different colors of fingerpaint (I just used the basic six)
  • a LARGE sheet of paper per child -a smock for each child

1.  Tape the paper to the table and smock the kids 
2. Explain the Bible story, whatever it is (Moses and Aaron for me) 
3. Give each child a small dollop of paint in each color; put the dollops in a row 
4. Give each child a paper towel roll and have them fingerpaint it 
5.  Then roll the paper towel roll over the paint on the paper to rub the colors together 
6. Repeat with the second paper towel roll 
7. Let the rolls dry overnight, then tape them together to make a staff.

I used masking tape and put their names on the tape. I was AMAZED at how beautifully these turned out.  They looked like modern art when they dried! The paper they use turns out really cool, too; I hung up my kids' paper because it was so pretty! Just another suggestion to add to your Moses projects. I used several of them, by the way; they're excellent!
