Philip & Ethiopian (Acts 8) | Craft

Philip and Ethiopia chariot craft

The story of Philip and the Ethiopian has one big obvious craft, a chariot. While some groups will “junk model” this concept, if you want something more sedate and contained, this craft fits the bill.

Philip and Ethiopia chariot craft: setup

To make this craft, you will need the 1-page template printout, scissors, thin card and some paper glue.

Print the template and then back it onto card. The following photos are from an older version of the craft, but the construction is the same.

Philip and Ethiopia chariot craft: the seat

Cut out all the pieces and start assembling by attaching the base of the chariot by gluing the fold-able tabs onto it.

IMPORTANT: the bigger tab is there to allow the chariot to stand, don’t fold it.

Philip and Ethiopia chariot craft: the wheels

The wheels, the glue onto the outside.

Philip and Ethiopia chariot craft: the horse

The card horse is made by folding the large shape along the middle join. A little glue inside the head will help the creature stand upright.

Philip and Ethiopia chariot craft: old version

Take the reins and glue them onto the side of the head. Bend the paper over at the loose end and glue onto the rim of the chariot.

  1. Thank you SO much for the Philip/Ehtiopian craft!!! I’m an SRE teacher and I was thinking it would be really hard to find craft ideas for this lesson but your chariot and the cut and glue picture have made my lessons for both different age groups I teach. Thank you so much and I look forward to coming back to your website MANY times! Hope God blesses you richly.

  2. Thank you Kate. I am so delighted to find this very helpful illustration for the little “Noah’s Ark” class of sweetie pies we teach. They are from 3 to 7 years old.

  3. Thank you SO much for sharing the beautiful chariot and horse template. I printed it onto bright yellow card and the children loved it. As the children are young, I made-up the chariots and horses and they each coloured their horse + a pic I found of Philip and the man from Ethiopia reading the scroll, which was then slipped into the chariot. It made a lovely craft for the end of my lesson. This message comes with thanks and blessings from South Africa.

    • Thank you so much for sharing Marie! I really find messages encouraging and it’s lovely to hear how people adapt crafts to their needs 🙂

  4. I have searched and searched and found many chariots to make for our Ethiopian and Paul lesson and your chariot is by far the best I have come across. Considering we have 30 children it is simple but very effective and manageable on a large scale once printed and cut. Thank you so much and sending blessings from South Africa xx

    • Deanna, thank you so much for the comment, I’m thrilled you found the template so useful and I hope your lesson went really well. It’s an honour to know I’m serving churches across the globe!

  5. Thank you so much for these great ideas. Our school system has never stopped having religious release time, so every Monday my friend and I get to have students (whose parents allow them) come for about 30 min.for a Bible lesson. One Church provides busing another allows us to hold the class in their building.Since we have no “budget” I am very thankful I found your site. Hopefully, at some point I will be able to send something your way. Oh, we are not ‘spring chickens”. My friend is in her early 50s and I am 58. Thank you again

    • Hugely blessed by your comment, thank you for sharing. I write just for groups like yours, where kids ministry is still seen as valued if not budgeted for. When I first started young peoples work I was introduced to ‘the young ones’ at the church I served, 2 women both around the 50 years marker, also two of the best people I’ve ever worked with! Age is not a barrier to great kids work. Do let me know if there is anything specific I could help you with, and many blessings to you and your ministry.
