Egypt VBS

I have been working on items for my churches upcoming Vacation Bible School. This year we are doing Egypt Joseph's Journey From Prison To Palace. One of the things I made for the toy shop is this Senet Board Game. This was actually one of the crafts the program recommended for the kids to make. It was a tiny cardboard game the kids were to punch out and do a bit of coloring on. I thought it was to pricey for something the kids would take home and throw away. But I did think they would enjoy playing the game at VBS. So I created two larger wooden versions that kids can play during their time in the marketplace. I used a piece of balsa wood for the game board and some Popsicle sticks for the space counters. And a package of wooden disk for the markers. This was pretty easy to make I just hope it is not to hard to learn to play. The rules look easy to me.

Some other things I have been working on are costumes pieces and some decorating items. I will be sharing some of these with you with hopefully a tutorial for one or two things. I have been taking pictures of my progress.

  1. Wow, it's sounds like a great program you are doing. I'm sure the kids will appreciate all your hard work. If you weren't on the other side of the world I'd set up afternoon tea for you and my mum, because she is always doing things like that for the afternoon club she is involved with at her church too. I think you would be kindred spirits for sure.
