Use the parents’ page as a way to keep in touch with parents, to keep them informed of what you are teaching, and to encourage them to continue reinforcing the lesson at home. Use this template as a starting point. Make it your own by telling them how the children responded to the lesson or something funny that happened. You could substitute any activity suggestions that you think would be appropriate for parents to do with their children at home.
Today we learned how Moses’ mother hid him in a basket to save him from the Pharaoh. Help to reinforce the lesson to your child this week by talking to him or her about the lesson and helping him or her learn the memory verse.
Here are a few activity ideas…
Help your child memorize the verse.

Baby Moses Craft: Have your child glue a paper cupcake cup to a blue piece of paper. Cut strips of green paper and fringe it. Then have him or her glue the fringe to the blue paper around the cup to make it look like it is hiding in the bulrushes. Baby Moses could be made by wrapping a cotton ball in a tissue to represent a baby. Glue the baby into the paper cup.
Allow your child to watch Mary Rice Hopkins & Puppets With A Heart on Saturday mornings on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) at 8:30 a.m. Pacific time.
