An hour later I opened the bag that they brought and saw about 30 mini-figures: Yoda, C-3PO, R2-D2, Jar Jar, Han, Leia, Lando, Storm-Troopers, Luke, Darth, Clones, Rebels... They were all Star Wars figures!
We went through and read the story. Next we made our craft. Then I got out our Star Wars heroes and villains and proceeded to retell the story of Pharaoh and Moses and the Israelites and the Red Sea.
|The Israelites enter the parted waters as the Egyptians follow closely behind them.|
|Moses-Yoda leads the Israelites through the parted waters.|
Somehow we ended up with Yoda holding up his arms as Luke and a Rebel pilot finished crossing and Darth Vader and his ilk drowned in the papery curves of the Red Sea. It was very dramatic.
|The Egyptian Storm Troopers get crushed under the waves as the Red Sea closes back up|
We improvised and it made for a memorable story. And a good time was had by all.
