| Working in a 3D scene really helps the story come alive, this scene is when the 2 midwives, Shiphrah and Puah are called to face the Pharaoh – perhaps for the first time, perhaps for the second? It’s a simple craft though if you have younger children you may want to cut the characters out roughly rather than exactly!

Race the baby – This game requires a small pebble or object that can represent the baby. The idea of the game is for the loving family and friends to keep moving the baby before the midwife can find it. The midwife must call out a persons name and say the child’s name eg “ Aaron, Aaron, do you have the baby” Aaron then opens his hands palm side up to show if he does or doesn’t have the baby stone. The stone can be passed at any point excluding when the holders name is called. Link into the deception.
