1 GAME: Smallest Relay

Game / Bible / Life Connection:  

  1. Show Players the starting line and an object in the distance that the Players have to run to or around and back.
  2. Choose the five smallest Players to be on one team and have all the other Players on the other team (Making sure that team has more Players). [If the group is super large divide the Players in half before dividing into teams.]
  3. Explain that the first Player is going to run to the object and back and then tag the hand of the next Player in line.
  4. When their turn is finished have them go to the back of the line and sit down.
  5. The winning team is the one with all their Players sitting down at the end.
  6. Play several rounds changing the action that is to be preformed for each round. For example, running backwards, hopping, and so on.

3 LIFE CONNECTIONS

  Game / Bible / Life Connection:    

Memory Verse:   But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”  Mark 10:14-15

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.
