For a Bible Kids Camp we had a “Bible Friend” from the life of Joseph come to visit the children’s class each day. The actors all had a “key message” they were trying to convey from the life of Joseph, but they wrote their own scripts. We’ve found that volunteers remember their lines more easily if they write their own 5-10 minute script. After they had gone through their scripted part, they answered questions from the children before leaving.
Here are a few more photos from another Joseph themed children’s class.
These activity stations were organized for a 3-5 year old class. The children were split into 6 groups and they rotated through each table. Each table had a different colored disposable plastic tablecloth on it. A really simple way to organize the children into groups is by passing out Pharaoh head pieces that are constructed from 6 different colors of construction paper. Once the children have their headpieces on, they can go stand next to the plastic table cloth color that matches their headpiece.
Here are the station instructions.
Here is a schedule for rotating tables.
Here are signs for each table.
