We have been reading different bible stories to our children. However, small children have very short attention span and may not always fully understand the stories. Making the stories interactive can be very helpful.
The story of Joseph is one of my favorites. I just love how Joseph had a positive attitude toward God in the midst of all his trials. The story begins in Genesis chapter 37. But we use the children’s bibles and simple terms to teach the bible to kids. The other two lessons we have done (Creation & Noah) are on this page.
If you are familiar with the story, you will know that Joseph’s father, Jacob, made him a coat of many colors. The photos below represent the interactive activity we used to explain about the coat. I have made this second photo into a printable for anyone who wants to use it. Just click on the photo to print it out.
Materials needed for this craft:
1 Printable with Joseph’s Coat (above)
Construction paper (various colors)
Cut strips of construction paper and glue unto the coat.
Here is the final outcome (to the right) of the coat shown in this bible.
