Afterward, *ask: How did you feel during this game? Was it
fair or unfair? Explain.

Paraphrase the story from 1 Samuel 17.

*Ask: How do you think David felt when he faced the
giant? Was this contest fair or unfair? Explain. How did God help
David? What are some giants in your life you must overcome? How can
God help you?

Craft: Giant Steps-Using butcher paper, have kids
each make a giant footprint and write their name on it. In the
center of their footprint, have them each write the biggest giant
they’re facing. Then have kids write on each others’ footprints
words of encouragement or drawings of how God can help them
overcome their giant. Encourage kids to hang these footprints in
their room at home.
