| Jacob and Esau have this strange little passage in Genesis where the birth-right is sold for something as insignificant as a bowl of stew. It’s got all the hallmarks of a family ‘in-joke’ and yet this odd little conversation of two young men handing over birth-rights like a candy bar will echo down thought Jacob and Esau’s story. This very simple papercraft captures the moment it happens.

This story about the lamp lighter or the underlying passages about lamps and lamp stands are key Christian concepts for kids to grapple with. They use a very tactile and easy to demonstrate element – light. As such all these games play on the idea of light and vision and may need a darkened environment to work fully. Please check if your teaching area can have dimmed light before selecting the best activity for your group.
Water the camels – the servant knew God had lead him to Rebekah when she offered to water the camels. This simple relay race has the child moving ‘water’ from the well to the animals. Use a large bucket of water and a cup to move it. If you can’t get wet in your space then use shredded blue paper.

Today’s hero is Rebekah, because she shows us the gift of a wife.
Essential Teachers notes:
Isaac and Abraham have lost Sarah to old age and Abraham is probably more than aware his days are now numbered. He’s looking to secure the next generation of God’s people through his son, obviously the next generation means he needs a wife and none of the locals will do. This passage is full of imagery, it’s a lovely passage to act out. As always these are springboard notes, feel free to use your own expressions and words.

| There is an important moment in this story when Rebekah sees Isaac covers herself with a veil. Why she does this is debated. Some say it’s because she wants to soften or hide her face from her betrothed because it is his place to unveil it. Others claim it was a sign of a free woman, no slave could do such a thing, nor one already taken in marriage. Veiling the bride however is something that’s familiar with even modern day wedding customs. This very simple colouring page craft allows the child to attach the veil. here I’ve used baking parchment but you could use fine tissue paper or even lace if it’s avalible.
