1 GAME: What Time Is It?!!!

Game / Bible / Life Connection:  

1. Show Players the starting line and finish line for the game.
2. Have two Coaches stand side-by-side at the finish line facing away from the Players.
3. Have the Players line up along the starting line shoulder to shoulder and say “What time is it?”
4. The Coach on the right should yell a time like “5 o’clock.”
5. When the Players hear this they should take 5 steps forward and stop.
6. The Players should continue saying, “What time is it?” and the Coach on the right should continue to answer with a new time each round.
7. Important: About every third time, the Coach on the left side should shout, “It is time to go to jail!” That Coach then turns around and chases the Players back to the starting line. If that Coach tags a Player, that Player has to sit out for one round.
8. Important: The only time the Players will cross the finish line is when the Coach on the right calls out “It is time to come home!” This means all the Players can safely run to the finish line.
9. Continue to play as time allows.
