  • Black pieces of paper, small enough to fit in hand

Instructions

Chose 1 person to be The Angel of the Lord. That person hides their eyes or leaves the room for a moment. Each of the remaining children should be given a piece of paper. One in four will get a black paper to designate them as Egyptians, all others will get a red paper and will be designated Israelites.

The Angel returns, and taking the blanket walks up to a child of their choice and says, “I have come for your firstborn.” The child reveals their paper by placing it above their heads. If it is red, they say, “Pass over.” The Angel then goes to another child and repeats the process. If a child reveals a black paper, the Angel covers them with the blanket and now that child becomes the Angel for the next game.
