Footsteps of Faith: Queen Esther

A Jewish orphan named Hadassah is raised by her cousin Mordecai and is chosen by King Xerxes I to become Queen Esther of Persia. She takes the place of Queen Vashti, who is banished from the king’s presence for not obeying his command. Mordecai refuses to pay homage to Haman, who in his wrath vows revenge and devises a plot to annihilate the Jews. Queen Esther must save her people from destruction by exposing the plot to the king!
Now children ages 6 to 12 can make movable action figures and retell the Bible history of Queen Esther with Footsteps of Faith Queen Esther: Movable Paper Figures to Cut, Color, and Assemble. The leading characters—Queen Esther, King Xerxes, Queen Vashti, Mordecai, and Haman—will come to life as children color, cut, and assemble each figure with movable arms and legs and use the king’s scepter. The sturdy figures are then ready to be transformed into puppets for dramatic presentations, or to be used as a supplement for biographical studies, as props to retell history, as an activity during reading time, or as characters in skits with stop-motion animation.
This creative learning tool is ideal for kinesthetic learners and features detailed illustrations based on paintings and relief sculpture. Each character comes in easy-to-assemble colored and colorable versions printed on heavy card stock for hours of creative play. A short biography section provides key facts about each person. To add to the learning fun, a downloadable script is available on our website for dramatic presentations.

An engaging activity for hands-on learners. Fun to make and play with, again and again!
