A fun children’s ministry game that will help kids get into the spirit of Christmas.
For every four children, you’ll need one box, one roll of gift wrap, one pair of child-safe scissors, a roll of ribbon, a roll of tape, and a gift bow.
Form teams of four. Give each team its supplies. Tell kids that they’re to wrap an imaginary gift for the world, such as peace or an end to hunger. They have to decide what gift they’d like to give and wrap it beautifully in the shortest time possible.
When the race is over, have group members show the wrapped boxes and tell what gift they chose. You can honor groups with awards such as “the most inventive gift,” “the fastest wrap,” “the most beautiful ribbon,” or “the best placed tape.” Make sure that each group receives recognition.
Created for students in grades 3 through 6.
