Family Night: Egypt and the 10 Commandments
We are learning the Ten Commandments in CC this year and studying Ancients and Egypt - so I thought it would be fun to do a Family Night learning more. I had gotten the movie Prince of Egypt at a thrift store and our kids have never seen it - so that seemed like a fun thing to start with.
The next Sunday found us home with a coughing Emily, so we read the Biblical account in order to compare it to the movie and learn the true story and which parts of the movie were changed or embellished.
I made Rice Krispie treats shaped like two tablets and then used a small tube of decorator icing to write the Roman Numerals for each of the Ten Commandments. I found this idea online somewhere this summer and now cannot find it again.
We had fun together and had some good discussion about Egypt, the way they dressed, what it meant to worship other gods, what it would have been like for Moses, etc...
Another fun time together!
