Miriam’s song – the Red Sea (Exodus 15) | Craft 2


The story of the parting of the red sea is so very visual it’s hard to resist the urge to curl paper and dive into creating a scene. This version has the depth that’s needed without the hundred strips of paper, so it shouldn’t flatten too easy on the trip home. Miriam heads up the crowd while Moses stands aloof, on a classic overhanging rock, watching the crowd move. While there is quite a bit of cutting it’s really simple to put together.

Miriam’s song – the Red Sea (Exodus 15) | Craft 2 To make this craft you will need a pair of scissors, one printout page and a glue stick. Grabbing a ruler to help your fold in a straight line and a pencil to curl round may help too, but isn’t necessary. I’d strongly recommend printing on thicker paper. I’ve included an extra template with the crowd in 1 piece rather than 3 for younger groups too.

Choose your template:

For printing in full colour (recommended) PDF – 1 page
For printing in partial colour (for those with ink issues) PDF – 1 page
For printing with no colour (for those without colour printing) PDF – 1 page
For printing in colour – reduced pieces (for those with younger groups or less time) PDF – 1 page

Valley folds create a valley with the printed sides touching
Mountain folds create a mountain with the printed sides on the outside.

  1. I am so happy that I came across this page. In the next week I will be assisting with the pre-teens and under with youth fellowship . These ideas are just what I need for my assignment. Thanks a million. At this time I am not able to assist financially but will pray that soon I will be able to. We will make it our duty to remember your help and pray that God will continue to open doors for you to reach the world with the gospel of the kingdom. Thanks and may God bless you. Much appreciated for your dedication and hard work.

[…] Make a diorama of the crossing of the Red Sea, like this one from Crafting the Word of God.  Or   you might want to use the Passover Paper Dolls from Messianic Education Trust and make one like this from Kids! Know the Bible!   Or you might like a version of this craft from Full Hands and Ready Feet.  Jesus Without Language has a printable version. […]
