Ready for a new set of Shavuot puppets to follow up with these coloring puppets. These mountain puppets are a fun kids craft to color and play. This post contains affiliate links.
As kids, we enjoyed the “I am a mountain so very tall” song that was based on a famous midrash.
The story goes as follows:
G-d was looking for a mountain to give the Torah on. All of the mountains started boasting “I am the tallest, I am the prettiest, I am the widest, the Torah should given on me.”
But humble and simple Mt Sinai thought he wasn’t worthy because he wasn’t powerful and beautiful. G-d chose humility as the trait he wanted in a mountain to give the Torah on. He made flowers, grass and trees grow to make it beautiful for the big day.
Thanks to a reader suggestion to make mountain puppets, I decided to create this color-in craft that teaches this story and makes a great sing-along activity with the song.
Here’s a video of one version of the song, so that you can sing along with your Shavuot puppets:
We made these as fingers puppets and so you have a strip on your template (don’t cut it off!) to make your own finger puppets.
You can make these into stick puppets easily – just cut off the strips and glue on a popsicle stick instead!
Little kids will love singing the song with the puppets they colored on their fingers!
