Due to their vast age gap, I tried to think of a lesson which could cater to both of them. Finally, I settled on the ten plagues. J knew the plagues but not in order, so I thought the lesson would benefit him too.
Plague One - Water turning into blood
|We applied red paint to a sink of water.|
|We made paper frogs and competed to see whose could jump the furthest.|
|We enjoyed poking our fingers into black finger paint and creating gnats.|
We twisted two strings on J's ukelele and plucked the twisted strings to make the sound of flies.
Plague Five - Dying animals
|The animals died.|
Plague Six - Boils
|Bright red dough came in handy.|
We stopped at plague #7 as it was time for lunch. J declared that he liked "this Sunday School" and requested that I finished all the plagues. We had a wonderful time learning about God together.
