The Friday faith-filled family fun blog is a series of weekly posts with fun activities based around Bible stories. Today's activities go with the story of Joseph in Egypt.
Our family loves having "family fun nights," and some of those fun nights happen to be Bible fun nights. This summer I used the same concept, but we invited some friends over for a fun-filled Bible study. I know, "fun-filled" and "Bible study" don't usually go in the same sentence—but maybe they should! My boys are having a blast with their friends, and they are learning about the Bible at the same time.
For this fun Bible study, we learned about Joseph, particularly the part of the story when Joseph interpreted the Pharoah's dreams, and the Pharoah put Joseph in a place of power and responsibility. I found out what the boys already knew about the story of Joseph, we read Genesis 41, took a fun quiz and talked about the passage. Mind you, these are young boys (ages five to barely eight), but they were actually engaged in the story! But to keep them engaged, we added some fun elements to the evening.
