Joseph and Jealousy. (Biased Pass the Parcel)
If speaking about the selling of Joseph into slavery (Genesis 37:18-28), get a flavour of real jealousy and anger by playing ‘Pass the Parcel’ and stopping it at the same child every time. The children will be furious – and so will many of the congregation – so be prepared for that. We calmed things down by making the central gift a box of sweets with big instructions on the lid – ‘Share these with all those who have played the game with you’ and making sure there were not too many previous stops/ unwrappings of the parcel.
