Why just tell kids about David and Goliath and have them color a handout when you could play... Human Slingshot where kids link arms to make "slings" and launch paper "rocks" at a nine-foot high target (and then have a great discussion about the story)?
Inclusive games -- no one is left out, there are no losers, all players win -- learning friendship, teamwork, and the Bible point.
Games are arranged by three age groups: preschool, lower elementary, and upper elementary.
Preschool games for Esther are "Who Will Lead?" and "The King's Sceptor", and for the topic, Following Jesus are "Herding the Sheep", "Come Along" and "Stop, Drop, and Follow".
Lower elementary groups can play "Unseen Presence" or "The River Bend" for the topic, Faith, or they might play "Worry Whirl" for the topic, School.
Upper elementary ages might play "Outsmart the Crushers" for the topic, Joy, and "True-False Tag" to reinforce a Truthfulness lesson.
Preparation is simple, with few, easy-to-find game props (Bible, crayons, paper plates or nothing at all). Imagination is the primary equipment!
Game plan includes follow-up discussion, questions for thought, or suggestion for Bible reading.
Every game features all-out wild fun, but also makes a key Bible point.
Energy level index and Scripture index for all games!
