Josiah (2 Kings 22) | Craft


Josiah lessons usually have a scroll craft, there are loads of these on-line so I thought I’d do something different! This is a simple craft to prepare for and great for independent learners. The discovery of the scroll of the Law was not something they were looking for, just something that came into their path, but changed everything. This marble maze has only one path – form the star to the scroll – because when we reach the scroll everything changes!

This craft can be done in two ways, one uses drinking straws, the other is a purely paper construction.

Josiah (2 Kings 22) | Worksheet

This worksheet about Josiah is a mixed discussion starter, numbers quiz, and bible verse. The sheet is designed to do in small groups, but if needed could be done alone. It is designed for able readers, but would be ok for older children as a quick padding activity. For younger children you may want to discuss the first activity as a big group, perhaps even print the top of the sheet up large and start by identifying the objects, the remaining activities would depend on the group you had.

Josiah is today’s hero because he shows us the gift of Asking

Essential Teachers notes:
The book of 2 kings is not usually where one starts in teaching kids about biblical heroes, but amongst the horrors of the kids of Israel there comes this chapter about a child who is made king, a king who rules for many years, comparatively, and a king who brings the people back to god. It’s a wonderful tale and one really worth exploring. While this story happens when the king has about 26, it plays heavily on the childhood element.

Main Passage : 2 Kings 22

Josiah (2 Kings 22) | Games


The hero in this story is the young Josiah, he is depicted as the child king and yet by the time of clearing the temple he is probably abut 26 years old, having reigned for 18 years. Yet he must have been, even as a child, a reliable king, to have reigned for 18 years.

Message paper fight – This game is totally unforgettable and any ‘typical little boys’ in your care will have a ball! prepare a big bag of scrunched up paper balls and tip them all over the room, don’t tell the children but on 3 pieces of paper write a bible verse before scrunching. Split your children into 2 groups and draw a line to divide your space into left and right. The children will act the part of the people clearing up the temple, but they decided to be lazy, and just throw the rubbish over to the other people to sort. Agree a signal to stop and then let them go, when they stop say the winning team is the one who found the treasure in the trash. They will probably look confused and then frantically start searching, if they don’t then prompt them!
