10 Plagues

For the lesson on the 10 plagues we made a scroll of sorts that showed an example of each of the plagues. I gathered the color pages from several different sources I google. Some of my favorite sites are,
They both have a ton of ideas for scripture based crafts.
The prep work for this lesson didn't take more than a half an hour once I had my idea in place and had found the examples. I used legal size paper and drew 10 sections and numered each. Depending on the age of the kids you can have them cut their own colored pictures out and figure out where they go on the main sheet or precut them for younger kids. The coloring pictures are for Plagues 1,2,5,6,8 & 10. The rest are; #3 we glued rice to the page for lice, #4 I used a hole punch and made small black circles and we drew wings on them for flies. # 7 we tore tiny pieces off marshmallows and stuck them on the page, and finally # 9 we colored the section black then glued on google eyes for darkness. I like to make the lesson literal when I can because it seems to make a longer lasting memory for the kids. I also found that the kids remember the plagues we made more readily than the ones we colored.
