It’s taken me awhile to share more fun Bible activities for kids from our SHIP trip in El Salvador.  Our next day of VBS was about Joseph and included a Joseph coat of many colors craft & snack. The kids loved it.

What a great opportunity to teach the following truths by using questions. After the Bible story, we played a review game. I love using questions because it encourages your kids to think for themselves. Too often, moms want to tell answers, instead of asking questions.  Try these questions:

  1. Which son did Jacob love the most? (Joseph)
  2. What special gift did Jacob give Joseph (A coat with many colors)
  3. What happened to Joseph? (He was sold as a slave)
  4. What did the brothers tell Joseph’s father? (Jacob was dead)
  5. Who is in control of everything? (God)
  6. What should you remember when you are afraid or bad things happen? (God is in control)
  7. What surprises God? (Nothing)
  8. What must you do to be saved? (Believe on Jesus as your Savior)
