Abraham and His Descendants

Scripture Reference: Gen 15:5
Here's a great craft that I used with my 2 1/2 - 3 year old Sunday school class to support the story Abraham.

A complete lesson for Abraham and His Descendants called "Joseph and Gods Promise" is available on The Resource Room. This Sunday School Lesson is about Joseph in Egypt after his brothers sold him into slavery. Children learn that God kept his promise to Abraham and to Joseph and his family. And that God can take bad things and make good things happen.

1. Star Picture Activity Sheet

Give the children black construction paper and star stickers. Tell them that Jacob brought over 70 family members with him to Egypt to escape the famine. Help the children count the number of stickers on their papers. A Pattern Sheet for this activity is available to members on The Resource Room.

2. Star Picture

Give each child a piece of black construction paper. Then give each child a small amount of paper stars. (I just printed some colored stars out on my computer using card stock paper.) Allow them to glue their stars to the black paper, leaving some space between the stars. Next give each child a piece of chalk (any color)and have him or her connect the stars and count the stars. Glue the memory verse to the bottom of the page. "Look up into the heavens and count the stars if you can. Your descendants will be like that " too many to count!" Gen.15:5 - This idea comes from Belinda Boardman

4. Jacob's Sons Folding Craft Stick Bible Craft for Sunday School

jacobs-son-craft-stick-bible-craft-for-sunday-school www.daniellesplace.com

The craft sticks are taped together so that when they are pushed together from the sides they fan fold up into a compact stack of sticks for storage. Unfold the stack and the disciples appear standing next to each. Children will enjoy drawing each of Jacob's sons and then writing their names on the back of the sticks.

What you will need:

WoodsiesWoodsies Mini Jumbo Craft Sticks -4.5" 50/Pkg - Use good quality craft sticks that lay flat. The 5/8" work perfect with the one-inch tape. *You can use the Woodsies Jumbo Craft Sticks with the 1.5 Inch - 3M Scotch Masking Tape for a bigger Canvas.

3M Scotch Masking Tape, 1-Inch - Other brands will work, but this tape works great! It is the exact color of the craft sticks. (Staple's Tape works better with the washable markers, but it is lighter than the stick and more transparent and doesn't cover the stick as well.)

Permanent Markers, crayons, or colored pencils - (The washable markers don't work well because they smear on the tape.)

How to Make the Disciple's Folding Craft Stick Display:

Folding Craft Stick Craft Diagram1. Cut the mini-jumbo craft sticks into two pieces. Vary the lengths so you don't have all the disciples the same height.

2. Place two sticks together, side by side, and tape them together covering both the sticks with the tape. You don't have cover the rounded ends of the sticks.

3. Turn the two sticks over so that they are diagonal to you.

4. Place another craft stick next to and below the two sticks that you taped together. Use another piece of tape to tape the bottom two sticks together.

5. Turn all three sticks over diagonally and place another stick at the bottom of the row and tape the last two sticks together. Keep going until you have a whole row of sticks.

6. You can also cover the first and last stick in the row by placing tape over the stick and then folding it back over the stick. It is easier to write on the tape than the craft stick. The ink soaks into the sticks and blurs.

Children can use permanent markers, pens, or colored pencils to draw the disciples faces, hair, and clothes on the sticks. Have them write the disciples' names on the back of the sticks.

If a child messes up while working on his canvas, you can pull off the tape where he messed up and replace it with new tape.

5. Family Tree Picture

family tree activity sheet for Sunday SchoolWhat you will need: White typing paper, shades of green paper, glue, markers, and crayons.

How to make:

1. Before class print out the Family Tree Pattern (Available to members only on The Resource Room) and cut out small leaf shapes about 2” long from green paper. (Also available without the Bible verse.)

2. In class have your children color the tree trunks and write their family member's names on the leaves. Younger children will not know very many of their relatives, but they can just glue the leaves on the tree and have their parents help them write the names on the leaves later. Don’t worry about putting the names in any kind of order like a real family tree. The idea is to just help the children think about how many people are related to them.

3. Talk about Jacob’s family and how Joseph was used to fulfill God’s promise to Abraham who was the father of Isaac and Jacob. Genesis 26:4 “And I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven . . .”

4. Talk to the children about Jacob’s 70 family members who where in Egypt during the famine. Genesis 46:8-22 tells how many children each of his sons had. Challenge the children to come up with 70 relatives.

5. I challenged the children to take their trees home with them and have their parents help them write in the names of their relatives. I offered a prize to the child that brings back the tree with the most names.

6. Play a "Doggy, Doggy, Where's Your Bone?" Type Game

Pick one child to be Jacob. Jacob sits in front of the room with his back to the other children and closes his eyes. Place "Joseph" (a doll, bean bag, or paper doll) behind Jacob. Pick one child to sneak up and take "Joseph" and then go back and sit down hiding Joseph behind their back. All the children then say, "Jacob, Jacob, where's your son? Somebody took him, but who's the one?"Jacob tries to guess who took Joseph. If he is right, he takes another turn. If he is wrong, he takes the place of the child who took Joseph.

 

7. Play a Memory Verse Game

Cut out star shapes and write the memory verse on the stars using one word per star. I used "He keeps his promises." Joel 2:13, five stars per child. Spread out the stars on the floor. Have the children sit on the floor around the stars. Take turns going around the circle letting each child pick a star. He must pick up the stars in order starting with "He". If a child doesn't pick up "He" the first time, he turns the star back over and tries again next time. Once he picks up the word "He", he will then try to find the word "keeps" and so on. The child that picks up all the stars in order first wins. You can then have the child glue the stars onto a strip of paper to take home and study. To make this game longer, you can ask questions about the story and then have the children pick up a star.

2. Pretend Play for Preschool Children

3. Act Out the Story with Puppets

Place your children into groups and have them take turns acting out the story with the puppets. They may want to make herdsmen, animals and more people puppets to act out the story. If they don't want to use puppets, they can act out the story without puppets.
