Shiphrah and Puah (Exodus 1) | Craft 2


Working in a 3D scene really helps the story come alive, this scene is when the 2 midwives, Shiphrah and Puah are called to face the Pharaoh – perhaps for the first time, perhaps for the second? It’s a simple craft though if you have younger children you may want to cut the characters out roughly rather than exactly!


To make this craft you will need a pair of scissors, double sided sticky tape (or glue and sticky tape), 3 paperclips and the printout. This is another one where printing on thicker paper or thin card would help.

Start by adding any colour if needed and cutting out the pieces. If you are in a rush just cut one side of the midwifes, rather than doubling up!


If you are scoring your lines do so now. Then fold the background and the benches.


Add some glue or double sided tape to the tabs – the glue goes on the back of the benches tabs.



Now assemble your scene. The benches positions are shown on the wall so there are 4 legs on the floor, 2 drawn onto the wall.



Now for the paperclips, there will become stands by gently bending them open.



If you are using both the front and back pieces of Shiphrah and Puah make a small nick for the paperclip.



Use tape to secure your paperclip in place.



before you rush to place them in your scene make sure they do stand, you may need to adjust the lay of the paperclip a little.



Enjoy your little scene, what are the midwifes whispering to each other, what is the pharaoh thinking, is he giving them an instruction or is he angry with them for not following his plan?
