  • Water
  • Blue food colouring
  • Vegetable oil
  • Ziploc bags


  • 2 blankets
  • coat



  1. Give each child a ziploc bag.
  2. Fill just under half of a ziploc bag with water.
  3. Add blue food colouring to the water.
  4. Then gently tilt the bag and put oil in the bag.
  5. Close the bag and make sure it is completely airtight.
  6. Explain how Elisha worked miracles and separated a river.
  7. Allow the children to separate the liquid in the pouches to have the same effect.




  1. Place two blankets side by side on the ground to create a river.
  2. Place a child at the end between the two blankets so that he or she plays the role of Elisha. Then separate the rest of the children on either side of the two blankets.
  3. Give a coat to the child who plays the role of Elisha.
  4. Explain to the children how Elisha worked miracles. One day, Elisha split a river in half by rolling his coat and hitting the ground.
  5. At your signal, tell the child to hit the floor with the coat, then the other children pull on the blankets to separate them to make a path just as Elisha did.
  6. You can let the children take turns to divide the river.



  • You can use blue plastic tablecloths instead of blankets.
