David and Goliath Printable Paper Play Set

Hi! It’s Heidi from A Lively Hope, dropping in today with the next installment of our Old Testament stories paper play sets. If you saw the first paper play set I shared (Jonah and the Whale) and read the slightly embarrassing reason why I’ve been creating these sets, I’m happy to report that my idea worked! I used the set to tell the story of Jonah to my four year old son and he LOVED it! He played with the set for a while, reenacting the story and solidifying it in his mind, and he was even able to retell the story to his daddy and siblings later in the day.

Today I’m delighted to share a play set for the story of David and Goliath! This story is found in Samuel Chapter 17 and it’s a pretty remarkable tale of bravery and trust in the Lord. Samuel’s desire to follow the Lord and his strength in the face of danger is exactly the kind of story I want to fill up my child’s imagination. You can also find a short video featuring this story here  and a ton of helpful David and Goliath resources here.

This would make a perfect family home evening lesson, or a great way to entertain kids during sacrament meeting.

I am planning to have this set available for my little guy to play with during General Conference this weekend. ( I’ll be using this Conference Journal for Busy Moms myself and my older kids will be using this Conference Doodle Journal)



Printed puppets (Download below)


Laminator, if desired

Popsicle sticks, if desired

Velcro or pieces of flannel, if desired



Print out the paper dolls and background.

Cut out the figures.

Laminate, if desired.

You could attach the popsicle sticks as a handle onto the puppets, but we like them better without.

You could also use velcro or a piece of flannel glued to the back of the puppets to use them on a flannel board, if desired.

I have a deep love for scripture stories and the powerful lessons they contain. I’m so happy to find a way to share them with my children that’s both meaningful and simple.
