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.
The Samaritan woman was rejected by those around her because of her immorality. Jesus did not reject her. He sought her, had compassion for her and ministered to her by preaching to her the good news of salvation. Our kids need to understand that we also need to show the same love that Jesus showed to the Samaritan woman by sharing the gospel and telling others about Jesus.
The Instructions seem complex, but you can easily assemble the craft just by looking at picture.
- Print the template on card stock. (Template)
- Color and cut out all of the pieces.
- Color a lollipop stick brown.
- Glue the 4 wooden posts together. You will be left with two wooden post pieces. On one of the sides for each post will be a piece with the black dot.
- Take the well piece and fold on the solid lines creating the creases that will help you assemble the well.
- Glue the sides of the well together by adding glue to the side tab of the well.
- Glue the wooden posts to the inside of the well.
- Glue the top of the well piece in place.
- Puncture the black dots on the wooden posts. Then with a toothpick make the hole larger.
- Stick the colored lollipop stick through each of the holes on the wooden posts.
- Glue two pieces of black or brown yarn/string to the back of the wooden barrel and the other end to the colored popsicle stick.
This craft can also be used for the stories of:
Joseph Betrayed By His Brothers (Genesis 37)
Rebekah Chosen As Isaac’s Bride (Genesis 24)
Moses Escape To Midian (Exodus 2)
Lots wife not only was warned of the coming destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, but was provided with a way of escape for herself and her family. She was given very simple instructions, do not turn around and look at the city. Instead of fleeing for her life she turned around because her heart was set on the sinful city and as a consequence of her disobedience she turned into a pillar of salt.
Instead of setting our minds and hearts on the things of this world we should set them on God.
“18 For many walk, of whom I often told you, and now tell you even weeping, that they are enemies of the cross of Christ, 19 whose end is destruction, whose god is their appetite, and whose glory is in their shame, who set their minds on earthly things. 20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.” Philippians 3:18-20
“Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.” Colossians 3:2
