I’ve made a baby Moses paper plate craft before but wanted something a little simpler for our Holiday Bible Club as we don’t have a lot of time per age group. So this time there was no drawing round hands and the paper plate is a square plate.
To prepare I pre cut a slit in each square plate, prepared a piece of green card the right size to slot into the slit and printed lots of baby Moses’s and basket lids.
The children needed to cut the green card to make reeds, slot into the plate (a leader then used cellotape to secure the green card under the plate), mould a plasticine basket and place a coloured in Moses inside. The plate was decorated with blue and white tissue paper. A label was added ‘God kept Moses safe’ by ________.
You could use air drying clay but the plasticine was pretty much mess free. There is a softer version for young children.
Moses has a sad face because he was crying when the basket was opened.
Square blue paper plates are from Amazon
Plasticine also from Amazon and also Hobbycraft and WHSmith.
