Servant David (1 Samuel 16) | Make 2

This little scene is rather detailed, it shows the lavish kings tent where David would play to soothe the king. This craft is best for those who have good cutting skills and I’d recommend you reading all the instructions first to see if there is anything you wish to do in advance or omit from the craft.

Servant David (1 Samuel 16) | Make 2 For this craft you will need the PDF printout (1 page per child), scissors, a glue stick, & a craft knife. A cutting mat and ruler suitable for the blade may also be helpful.
NB:I’d strongly recommend printing on thicker paper / thin card for this craft. I use 140g or 160g which will work on the majority of home printers.

Servant David (1 Samuel 16) | Make 2 Start by making the slits with the craft knife. Firstly this is easier when the piece is flatter before cutting, secondly it allows you to do this in advance if you don’t want blades around the children.

The craft knife lines are marked with bold dotted lines, they form the tent door and the supports for the freestanding objects.

 

Servant David (1 Samuel 16) | Make 2 Now get cutting. The king tent would have been lavish so there are lots of pieces! If you wish you can score the tabs now too.

 

Servant David (1 Samuel 16) | Make 2 This craft is one where you start with the main piece and just keep adding.

Just below the lamp is a small line where the flap needs separating. Cut along the dotted line on both sides then onto folding.

 

Servant David (1 Samuel 16) | Make 2 Fold all the flaps towards you, the ones in the floor, the ones on the edges and the end of the tent too.

 

Servant David (1 Samuel 16) | Make 2 Now time to get curling. While you can do this with your fingers a thin pencil, or paintbrush makes it easier. Curl both the tent flaps and the lamps. (Tent flaps not shown, sorry) Servant David (1 Samuel 16) | Make 2

 

Servant David (1 Samuel 16) | Make 2 Grab the glue and add a wall. Glue the big tab on the floor first and the little one below the lamp second – make sure you get the lamp on the inside. Servant David (1 Samuel 16) | Make 2

 

Servant David (1 Samuel 16) | Make 2 The banners are a bit more fiddly. If you wish you can leave them a s a single piece, but if you want a more layered effect then cut along the dotted lines. Either way you need to fold the small white flap that will hook over the top of the wall. Servant David (1 Samuel 16) | Make 2

 

Servant David (1 Samuel 16) | Make 2 To attach the banners you need to add a little glue to the flap and stick in place.

 

Servant David (1 Samuel 16) | Make 2 Feel free to skip the bunting as it’s fiddly to cut and stick in place, I’ve put it along the side of the printout so you can conveniently snip it off before handing out the templates.

If you want to add it in then you need to fold the flap that attaches to the door side, then bend the strip at the darker yellow lines. Add a little glue to both the flap and the ends of the bunting to stick in place.

Servant David (1 Samuel 16) | Make 2 Once your tent is complete it should look a little like this, except you won’t have forgotten to bend the doors in!
