We continue with Joseph for today's lesson. I did not add a craft for today, since we are "acting" out the lesson. The kids will dress up as the different people and we will go around the room to the different visuals.
I have included directions for some of the visuals. Most I have used for years. I made the Egyptian outfits years ago, and the kids love stuff like that! Since Pharaoh is having a birthday party, we are having a small snack feast, which they also love! I just don't have food unless I can make it go with the lesson!
I made these, but you can look on Amazon or Ebay etc. to look for these costumes.
They can also be found in October in specialty stores.
Later, the chief butler and chief baker had made Pharaoh angry and Pharaoh put them in prison with Joseph. They both had a dream and when Joseph came in the next morning, they were looking so sad. Joseph asked them why they were so sad, and they said they didn’t have anyone to interpret their dreams. Joseph told them that dreams belong to God and to tell him about their dreams.
Pharaoh APEP II told Joseph about the dreams. Joseph told him that there would be 7 good years of food and then there would be 7 years of famine. Joseph told Pharaoh to put a man in charge of saving food in the 7 good years so that in the 7 bad years, there would be enough food for the people. Pharaoh said that Joseph was wise and discreet. (discreet: careful and polite)
