1 GAME: Fishnet Tag Penalty

Game / Bible / Life Connection:  

  1. Show Players the boundaries that the game will be played in.
  2. For safety: If there are many Players, divide them into several groups with the youngest Players in one area and the oldest Players playing in another area.
  3. Choose three Players to be “It.”
  4. The Player selected to be “it” then chases the others, attempting to get close enough to “Tag” one of them (touching them with a hand) while the other Players try to escape.
  5. Once the “It” Player tags another Player both Players are now “It” and the two Players hold hands stretching out like a “Net.”
  6. Each new Player tagged joins the “Net”—Players holding hands in a long line.
  7. Continue playing until all three “Nets” catch all the Players.
  8. The “Net” that has caught the most Players is the winner and the “Net” that has caught the least number of Players must do 10 penalty pushups.
  9. The last Player caught is the new Player to be “It” in the next round.
  10. Continue playing more rounds as time allows.
  11. Important: If one or two super fast Players cannot be caught make the playing space smaller and smaller until all the Players will be caught by the “Net.”

Memory Verse:   And he said to it, “may no one ever eat fruit from you again.” And his disciples heard it. And he was teaching them and saying to them, “Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations’? But you have made it a den of robbers.  Mark 11:14

Leader, ask God to connect to the children’s minds, the children’s hearts, and in the prayer to connect to the children’s soul.
