I originally put together for use during a summer All Age Worship at Felpham Methodist Church, West Sussex, as part of the launch of a Scripture Union holiday club and mission week exploring the story of Joseph.
Please feel free to use this as a resource, and adapt it as appropriate. If you do use it, let me know, and tell me how it went!

Some notes for use
It takes about 7-10 minutes to perform, depending how you do it.
I delivered it with a large table in front of me, and all the chocolates in a basket, bringing them out and holding them up as I referred to them (in red), the placing on the table. The times there is a chocolate in green means you’ve used it once already, so you’ve got to find it on the table – which adds to the entertainment factor!
Alternatively, you could do it with pictures on a screen, or with congregation having to shout out when they hear a chocolate reference.
Note that the script only briefly deals with some parts of the Joseph story, particularly the dreams of the baker and butler, and the toing and froing of the brothers in Egypt. You may want to develop these bits.
After using it for worship, we used it again with the young people, and divided it into parts, with one of them reading, and the other holding up the chocolates.
