Bible story from Exodus 8. This is part of our series of stories about animals in the Bible.
Meet the main characters – Moses, Pharoah and frogs!
Moses was the leader of God’s people. God’s people lived in Egypt. They were very sad (can you look sad). Everyday they had to make bricks. they made bricks 1,2,3,4,5,6,7, days a week. It was hot and dusty and horrible.
God told Moses to go and rescue the people. It’s always good to do what God says. ‘Moses, go and tell the King of Egypt to let all of my people go’
So Moses went to see the King of Egypt.
God says you are to let his people go
‘No’ said the king of Egypt ‘i won’t’. It’s always a bad idea to ignore God.
Moses told the king, ‘God will send something to make you change your mind!’
God sent … frogs!
Not just 1 frog, or 2 frogs or even 10 frogs but lots of frogs.
When the people wanted to cook food there were frogs in the oven, when they went to get a wash there were frogs in the water, when they went to bed there were frogs under the covers! frogs everywhere! When the king went to sit on his throne there were frogs already sitting there!
‘Take the frogs away’, said the King.
So Moses asked God to take the frogs away and God did. Now the frogs were back in the river.
After the story we sang our ‘new’ song. This went down really well.
