Judges 13-16

Puppet Show:

Sock puppets
kidsKate did a sock puppet show for Samson (which the kids loved!  Thanks Kate!).  The stage was pretty simple in that there were two slits cut in a curtain so that the characters could each be displayed through the slits.  There were two characters, Samson and Delilah.

Opening- Looney tunes theme song

Curtains rise as voice announces- “Welcome to Kidz Club Theatre. Tonight’s show is titled ‘Samson and Delilah’!

Samson walks out onto stage

Samson- I am the strongest man in the WORLD! God has made me stronger than everyone else! BUT , God told me not to tell ANYONE why I am so strong. It’s a secret between me and God.

Samson exits and walks back on again.

Samson- Oh no! the Philistines want me dead because I am so strong!

Samson leaves stage and Delilah enters

Delilah- I have talked to the Philistines. They are going to give me money if I find out what can make Samson’s great strength go away.

Delilah exits and returns with Samson

Samson- Hello Delilah! How are you?

Delilah- I’m good. But I need to know something, Samson. Is there anything that will make you weak?

Samson- Well, if you tie me up with wet rope, then I will be weak. I am tired. I am going to sleep now.

Delilah- Perfect! Now I will tie him up with wet rope and he will be weak!

Delilah ties him up with wet rope

Delilah- Samson! You’ve been tied up and the Philistines are coming to get you!

Samson- breaks the ropes ARGH! Where are they?

Delilah- Oh Samson you LIED to me! What is the real secret to your strength?

Repeat until last attempt

-new ropes

-braided hair

-cut hair

Samson wakes up to find his hair cut

Delilah- Samson wake up! The Philistines are coming to get you!

Samson- ARghhhh. Oh no! I am not strong anymore! You tricked me, Delilah!

Delilah- Now that you are weak, I will take you to the Philistines!

Samson- Oh no! I should’ve listened to God and not told Delilah my secret!


Teacher- So, what’s the big deal with this bible story? Well, God told Samson not to tell anyone the secret about his hair. Samson did not obey God, and he got captured by the Philistines. Always obey God, because he knows what’s best.

Let’s pray.
