Moses and the Amalekites

Exodus 17:8-16
The kids enjoyed making this. I cut Moses out of fun foam using an Ellison die cut.  (It would easy to just cut it out by hand. ) Then, cut a small piece from a straw and tape it to the back of the Moses figure.  Stick a light blue pipe cleaner through the straw and bend to make arms.  Cut a brown pipe cleaner "rod" to size (see picture).  Fold the ends of the blue pipe cleaner over the brown pipe cleaner to make him "hold" the "rod".  Have the children hold his hands up to show that the Israelites are winning the war against the Amalekites.  Have the children move his arms down when he grew tired and the Amalekites were winning.

The pattern I created is a little different from the above picture since I used a die cut for the picture.

  1. Which die cut did you use for Moses?

  2. It was an Ellison die cut called Noah. I just cut the arms off and put the pipe cleaner in it's place.

  3. Hi! Do you have Moses as a jpeg or bmp file? I don't have a die cut machine and am trying to find a craft project for my Children's church class. Thanks and God bless!

  4. Sure thing. I just created the pattern for you to use. It is now uploaded in the above article.

  5. Oh thanks so much! I really appreciate you sharing the pattern!! God bless!
