digging in...

...literally :)

For our preschool Bible lesson this morning, we talked about the Israelites (i.e. Joseph & brothers' childrens' children etc) becoming enslaved in Egypt and the Pharaoh putting them to work. Part of their work was building pyramids and other such structures. 

Bricks were generally made of clay or mud, but instead of going outside and digging up the backyard, we opted for playing in Moon Sand. We constructed a few buildings in the sand to remind us of what the Israelites did while they were slaves.

I don't even know if they still make this stuff, but we've had this mat-full for a number of years. Despite it being a hit, I really don't pull it out much as it does tend to wind up all over the place :)

The curriculum called for us to build with blocks, but my creative 10year old suggested we build with pillows instead. So, we counted pillows as we "built" a pyramid. Then, the kids jumped in the pile and had a pillow fight, lol.

Never a dull moment ;)
