While Manna is often the star of the show God also provided Quail for the people to eat meat. Quail are beautiful round bellied little birds who would have settled in their thousands to be caught and while many were roasted that first night others would have been kept for the days to come. This craft therefore has both manna on the ground and a quail strutting round.


Aaron and the Manna (Exodus 16) Worksheet
This worksheet looking at the story of the Quail and Manna ties to the wider Aaron lesson. It’s primarily a worksheet about recognizing why the Israelite’s grumbled and still God provided. This worksheet would work well as an extension activity or review, for an individual or as small group work – some of the questions would work well as small group discussions.

To complete the worksheet you will need some colored pens or pencils, a bible (specifically the book of numbers) and to turn your thinking caps on!

Manna just appeared for Aaron and the Israelite’s, the sun came up not only dispelling the nights blackness but revealing a morning gift. This traditional magic window craft does a similar job of transforming the Israelite’s world with both Manna and Quail. It’s a simple craft to prep and suitable for a whole range of ages.



Like Aaron and the Israelite’s we have all experienced hunger (at least on some level) and know how grumpy it can make people. This story of divine providence gives us some real tangible props to tie into our games. Select the game that best suits your groups age range and setup.



Gathering manna – spread popcorn kernels around the room and have the kids collect them. You can use popped or you can cook the manna and talk about how real manna may have tasted (like honey wafers). For younger groups use a clean sheet and pre-popped popcorn.

Today’s hero is Aaron, because he shows us the gift of manna.

Essential Teachers notes:
The Israelite’s are safe, saved by the mighty hand of God, and yet, as Aaron soon realizes, when the celebration stops they are far from out of danger.
