This craft is my second pharaoh’s head dress. If you would like a simpler version of this craft take a quick look at it. HERE
This craft can be done for different Bible stories and adapted for each one. It can be used for:
- Abraham’s move to Egypt and his deception towards the pharaoh.
- Joseph becomes second in command over Egypt.
- God freeing His people through Moses.
- Print the first two pages of the template on blue construction paper, the second page on yellow construction paper and the last page on white card stock. The template is blank in case you would like to print the template all white and have your kids color it in. (Template)
- Cut out all of the pieces.
- Glue the yellow pieces onto the two large pieces.
- Attach both blue pieces with the small white rectangular piece.
- Next glue on the snake head to the head dress.
- Finally attach the head dress to the child’s head using the white stripes.

“I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me.” Exodus 20:2-5
The Israelites were given a clear and simple commandment, but when they were faced with fear and anxiety by the absence of Moses for forty days they rebelled against God. They asked Aaron to make them an image of their supposed god and worshiped it in the most depraved ways.
There is a lot for our kids to learn from this Bible story. God is the only true living God. To worship anyone or anything besides Him is a sin and an open attack against who He is. Our kids should learn that we shouldn’t worship any image, idol or rendering of God because those things are not God. There is no way we can ever fully represent the holiness and awesomeness and perfection of God through an image. We would fail before we even began.
“4 Their idols are silver and gold, made by human hands. 5 They have mouths but cannot speak, eyes, but cannot see. 6 They have ears but cannot hear, noses, but cannot smell. 7 They have hands but cannot feel, feet, but cannot walk. They cannot make a sound with their throats. 8 Those who make them are just like them, as are all who trust in them.” Psalm 115:4-8
- Print the templates onto cardstock. (Template)
- Color in the templates.
- Cut out all of the pieces, including cutting on the dashed lines of each piece.
- Glue both neck pieces together to form a single piece. Do the same for the body and the legs.
- At this point if you choose you can glitter each individual piece. Allow the pieces to dry.
- Attach the pieces together to form the golden calf.
A great craft to help your kids remember the walls of the Red Sea and how God performed a miracle that allowed His people to cross into safety.
“Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord swept the sea back by a strong east wind all night and turned the sea into dry land, so the waters were divided.” Exodus 14:21
- Print and color the templates. (Template)

In the picture I colored the sand yellow, but your kids can use actual sand to decorate the background.
