For the manna in the desert story I had to hastily improvise a visual aid, so I used torn-up paper hankies.
That bowl really holds an omer! It seems a huge amount for a person, but as it was evidently fairly insubstantial it probably settled a lot.
It was interesting how vague some of the children were about where our food comes from. I explained that quail were birds you can eat, like chicken. Some of them were very surprised that the chicken we eat comes from a bird!
Very, very easy craft!!!
You will need:
- Paper plates (we had coloured ones in the cupboard, but normal white ones would be fine)
- Food catalogues / supermarket magazines
- (Optional) letter stickers
What to do:
- Children cut their favourite foods from the magazines and stick them on the plate.
- Stick on stickers (or write) to say 'Thank you God'.
