A great fun family movie to watch together is The Prince of Egypt, by DreamWorks Animation. It is the retelling of the story Moses’ life. It retells his whole story from birth until he lead the people across the dessert.
It is not a perfectly accurate movie but it does whoever tell the story of Moses pretty close to the Biblical version in an interesting way. One way you could watch this movie is to begin with reading the story of Moses. Do this over several days reading one chapter at a time. Once you have finished the stories in the Bible, sit down together to watch the movie. If you want you could have your kids write out the differences in the movie from the Bible.
This is just another way of making Bible stories interactive and understandable for young children. It could also be an awesome movie to have your kids watch with their non-Christian friends because it is non-threatening and yet it teaches them about the Bible and God.
