The purpose of Primary 1 Lesson 30: I Can Forgive Others is to encourage everyone to be more forgiving.

Use all these graphics to help tell the story of Joseph and his brothers. Turn them into stick puppets and the kids can easily help you tell the story.

The Primary 1 Lesson 30 Handout Packet includes:

  • Forgiveness Box label and strips. I made the words big enough and included pictures so even if the kids are holding it upside and walking away from you, you can tell what it is supposed to be. You can either tape the Forgiveness Box label on or staple it with another piece of paper for an easy envelope instead.
