Bible in 90 days: Exodus – Manna in the Desert

As we read about Moses and how he led the Israelites out of Egypt and into the desert, it seemed like tent-making was the most logical activity to do.

Our tent was very simple — just a big white blanket tied to chairs in the corners. After playing inside the tent for a while, the kids stayed in it as they watched “What’s in the Bible.” (That’s hardly like anything close to what living in tents would be like, I know… but we ran out of ideas.)

My daughter has been asking me about “manna,” the bread from heaven, and I thought, maybe I could make a pretend manna. We know that the bible says it tasted like wafers than had been made with honey (Exodus 16:31). So I made a mixture out of a bit of instant oatmeal, flour and honey. Then I drizzled it onto a nonstick pan and cooked it like tiny pancake pieces.

Aaaand…Ta-Da! It tasted like honey-flavored oatmeal pancakes! Hahaha! I mean, what would you have expected?

That’s it! Simple, but great fun. 🙂

“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.” – Deuteronomy 6:4-9
