Objective: Create a working signet ring to highlight the power that Joseph had in Egypt (see Genesis 41:41-42).
Provide fancy buttons with high relief, or deep patterns. Let each child choose a chenille stem and have them hold it against their pointer finger with the thumb and wrap it two times. Slip it off and twist the thumb end around the two loops. On the free end, slide a button to the ring top and loop the chenille stem again, slipping the stem in through the button hole at least twice. Wrap the remaining stem in a twist around the button base to stabilize the ring. Provide small balls of soft play dough. To use the ring, move it from the base of your finger to between the first and second joint. Press into the clay to leave your mark and show you’re special!
