1 GAME: Steal the Bacon!!!

Game / Bible / Life Connection:  

  1.  Show Players the boundaries for the game.
  2.  Show them the “Bacon” (a small object).
  3.  Divide the Players into two or four even-numbered teams (add a coach if needed). Have the teams sit down across from each other on the opposing boundary lines.
  4.  Assign each Player a number. Each team should have a one, a two, a three, etc.
  5. Explain that when the Game Zone Leader calls a number, one Player from each team who has that number will run to try to grab the “Bacon” in the center of the area. The first Player to get the “Bacon” will get a point for their team.
  6. Start the game by placing the “Bacon” in the center of the playing field and then calling out a number.  Announce the winner and which team got the point. Have players return to their spots. Quickly return the “Bacon” to the center.
  7. Replay with other numbers.
