Joseph's Coat


Genesis 37: 1-36
A sweet friend gave me this idea. This project was made for very young children though older kids have liked it as well.  Using a Sizzix die cut, we cut the boy out of mat board that you would use to mat a picture.  I asked for free scraps from a framing shop.  Tie the end of the multicolored yarn to one leg.  Then let the kids wrap and wrap and wrap around Joseph.  When the get to the top, wrap over one shoulder and then to the other.  To finish, tie the end to a a piece of yarn in the back.

We bought some cheap eyeshadow in different shades of brown and pinks to use to color the skin and face.  Then let them draw the rest with markers.
