Have you ever wished that you were at the first Pesach, when G-d redeemed our people from slavery and delivered brought us into freedom? Have you ever wished that you could step into the pictures in a Bible-story book and take part in the story that way? Or have you ever just wished that you could act out the story?

We've created a set of Pesach paper-dolls for you to do just that - act out the Pesach story. Essential characters in the story are Moses and Pharaoh. Other Israelite characters include an elderly couple - Aaron and Miryam or Grandad and Grandma - a father and mother, a young couple and children of different ages. We've also created other Egyptian characters - an Egyptian prince and princess, a slave-driver, a guard or soldier and a 'wise man' or magician. With these characters, we hope you can enjoy acting out the Pesach story for yourself and bringing it to life in a whole new way.

You can print all the characters or just select and print some of the characters. The dolls and their stands need to be printed separately - don't forget to print enough stands, or the dolls will not stand up. When you've cut out the dolls and their stands, cut along the upright black lines on the dolls and on the stands - then slot the stands onto the bottom of the dolls, to form a semi-circular stand behind the dolls. (See the pictures at the bottom of the page). The stands can be taken off so that the dolls can be stored flat. The clothes are not interchangeable - they've all been designed for just one doll, so you'll need to the print the right clothes for the right doll.

We hope we've provided you with enough dolls and enough costumes to make acting out the Pesach story - and other Bible stories - easy and fun!

We recommend:

  • That if the dolls won't print directly from your interent program, that you download the dolls and clothes to your computer and print each page from your word-processor as a graphic.
  • That you print the dolls onto thin card. (If you can't do this print the dolls onto paper and then mount them carefully on thin card afterwards.)
  • That you print the clothes onto regular paper.
  • That you use crayons to colour in the dolls and clothes. If you use felt-pen, the clothes get quite damp and curl. This makes them difficult to play with easily.
  • That you colour the dolls and clothes before you cut them out.
  • That - where applicable - you cut out the holes for the doll's faces in the clothes before you cut the clothes out.
  • That you give your dolls names and make them up their own Pesach freedom story - then have fun!

When you've cut out the dolls and their stands, cut along the upright black lines on the dolls and on the stands - then slot the stands onto the bottom of the dolls, to form a semi-circular stand behind the dolls.

Most of the stands fit any of the dolls, but the two long stands on the second sheet are for the three little children and the baby.
