10 Active Indoor Games

Snowball Fight

This game reminds kids of the power of God's grace.

Bible Connect: Isaiah 1:18

Stuff: You'll need newspapers, masking tape, a timer, and disposable wipes.

Play: Form two groups. Divide your classroom into two equal-sized areas with a masking tape line. Give each group an equal amount of newspaper. On your signal, let kids make newspaper "snow" balls and quickly throw them back and forth at the opposing team for two minutes. The object is to get more "snow" on the opponent's side when time's up.

At the end of the game, have kids collect the newspaper and place it in your church's recycle bin. Have kids clean their hands with disposable wipes.

Cool Down: Ask: How did your hands look after the snowball fight? How is the newspaper like sin? How are the wipes like God's grace?

Sock It to Me

Just as socks protect our feet, kids will discover that God protects us.

Bible Connect: Psalm 91:14-15

Play: Ask kids to sit in a tight circle and remove their shoes. Choose two kids to be It. They'll sit on their knees in the center of the circle. The rest of the kids forming the circle must stay seated with their feet in the center of the circle. The object of the game is for the It kids to take off the circle kids' socks before those kids can get the It kids' socks off.

Cool Down: Ask: What kinds of things are you exposed to in the world? How are socks like or unlike God's love? How does God's love protect you from inappropriate things?
