As you are raising your own kids or teaching other kids at a Christian school or Sunday school, this Joseph Bible Craft with Dot Stickers is intended to make life easier for you.
Equipping our kids with the word of God through stories, crafts, personal testimony and prayer is the goal. For them to see how God has worked throughout history helps promote faith as they face their own challenges and joys in life.
If you are a proponent of building into the Christian character of our kids, I really hope you take a moment to check out my Character Development Series. It’s a great resource for parents and teachers alike.
Joseph Bible Craft with Dot Stickers
The story of Joseph is found in Genesis 37-47. It’s a story of jealousy, deception and hate being redeemed through trust, forgiveness and God’s faithfulness.
While the brothers of Joseph intended Joseph’s demise, God had other plans. The Lord used what was intended for evil but turned it around for God’s glory.
Nothing seems to visually capture this story more than Joseph’s coat. There have been musical and movies surrounding the story, and the robe of many colors captures the imagination of many.
The jealousy seemed to take roots in a fancy coat given to Joseph by his father. The brothers strip him of this clothing, throw him in a pit to die and take the coat, covered in animal blood, back to the father as proof of Joseph’s fate.
Their intended fate never took roots. Joseph was delivered from the pit but sold into slavery. The path into Egypt eventually took him to a place as Pharaoh’s right hand man – a place that would help continue God’s faithfulness to His people.
As we unpack this story for kids, a craft revolving around this colorful coat can be an important lesson about God’s faithfulness.

I want you to encourage kids to be them, artistically. Some kids are naturally more organized and neat. Some are random and creative.
It can be hard when you are type-A to let them just go for it rather than creating patterns or symmetry. However, it’s wonderful to embrace the unique perspectives and talents they have been given.
Below shows two different styles you might see come out of your children. Both are beautiful!
I want to give a shout out to my blog friend, Susie, at Busy Toddler. She is the dot sticker queen and has so many activities using dot stickers.
She lives in the area, and we did lunch one day. I was telling her that my goal this year was to create even more Bible activities. She came up with the idea of making this Joseph Bible craft with dot stickers. Thank you, Susie!
