As you retell scripture stories, this figure can represent any boy in the scriptures, such as Isaac, Samuel, David, or a shepherd. The figure can be mounted on heavy paper, colored, cut out, then made into a stick puppet, flannel board figure, or paper sack puppet, as illustrated. Make several and color the hair and clothing differently for each one.
