Plagues For Kids

by James Ferguson | March 2006

Rite Lite Ltd., purveyor of “quality Judaica since 1949,” is helping children get comfortable with the mystery of a creator God who destroys. How? Rite Lite offers sets of Passover Ten Plagues Finger Puppets, made with cute cartoon eyes and colorful high-quality felt, so people of faith can share with children the suffering, death, and judgment poured out on Egyptians before the Exodus. All 10 plagues are represented, including lice, locusts, and (our favorite!) boils. (Personally, we’re hoping for a Sodom and Gomorrah line next.)
