Moses Finger Puppet Bible Craft


In A Nutshell

Yet another way to recycle toilet paper rolls. This adorable finger puppet Bible craft is a great way to bring interest to your Moses Bible story.

Moses Finger Puppet Bible Craft


Elementary, Tweens

Estimated Time

20 - 30 minutes

What You Will Need

  • Toilet paper roll tube
  • Any color fabric scraps, stripes work well
  • Felt for beard
  • Brown pipe cleaner
  • Moses Finger Puppet Pattern (See Downloads below).
  • Rubber band
  • Googly eyes
  • Pink craft foam for mouth
  • Fabri-Tac® glue
  • Scissors
  • Gray craft foam
  • Fine tip black magic marker


  • Print and cut out robe, beard, and headdress patterns
  • Depending on your time, you may want to go ahead and precut the fabric robes and headdresses.
  • In doing this craft, we discovered that toilet paper tubes are not all the same size. Be sure you leave at least 1" of tube uncovered when you glue on the robe. To do this, you may need to trim some of the robes.


  • Cut robe and headdress from material
  • Put glue on tube to cover 3/4 of the way up.
  • Place fabric robe on table, position tube on fabric. Wrap fabric around the tube and secure
  • Place headdress on top of tube and secure with a rubber band
  • Cut off 1/2 of pipe cleaner. Using longer length, curl one end to make hook.
  • Glue pipe cleaner to side of Moses.
  • Glue on eyes, beard and mouth
  • Cut tablets from craft foam. Using marker, create lines on tablets to look like writing. Glue tablets to side.


This finger puppet is a great way to capture children’s attention as you tell the Bible story. Team this with the Egyptian Pharaoh finger puppet (See Related Activities). We were surprised to learn that all toilet paper rolls are not the same length. The robe patterns are based on tubes at least 4" long. If you are using shorter tubes, you will need to trim the robes to allow enough uncovered tube for the face.
