This creative craft is perfect for Sunday school, youth group, or even to teach at home. I am always looking for fun and engaging ways to share Bible stories for young ones. When I think back as a kid, I remember listening to Bible stories and being super confused and downright bored. Kids today have a wonderful opportunity that I didn’t have years ago. You can find a ton of animated stories on bookshelves in book stores today and a TON of resources online. 

 .                          

With this imaginative take and multi-sensory approach, they will have an exciting, memorable, hands on and visual experience. Your kids will easily remember ALL of the plagues in sequential order — not just a few, they’ll remember each day’s terrifying curse. If you would like some help, please use my printable below to help guide you in your teachings! 

I will also share some fun facts about the Plagues of Egypt explained below for your kiddos as well. You might know these already, but you also might learn something new. Either way, they are great to know and share for a trivia session.

Fun Facts About 10 Plagues of Egypt 

  • Did you know that when the staff hit the Nile River, all the water became blood, including water that was in wood or even stone jars? All the fish in the Nile died and the Egyptians could not drink from the river, nor stand the stench. (Exodus 7:19) 
  • Of course, the second plague was the frogs. I can’t imagine having millions of frogs from everywhere consuming so much space. Did you know that the Egyptian magicians were able to duplicate this plague, trying to fool people that it wasn’t God making this happen?  
  • The hail and storms killed so many people, crops, and even animals. Although Pharoah admitted his sins once the storms had calmed, he still refused the freedom to the Hebrews.  
  • The plagues took place so that God could show the Israelites and Egyptians His power. The people would know that His words are true and He is the one and only God that all should follow.

Edible Ten Plagues of the Bible Lesson List

As you can see, I created food to mimic each of the plagues. As you go through and discuss each plague, show them firsthand the foods to resemble each plague. If you have older kids, encourage them to figure out which food represents each plague. Below is a list of each cup’s contents and their symbolism:

If you can’t find the exact snacks, look for similar edible treats that resemble or fit the plague you are trying to represent.
