Stuff: Yarn, scissors, a stopwatch, and purple
Kids will love playing this game that simulates the common
practice of crushing grapes to make juice at harvest time.
Have kids each inflate a balloon and tie one end of a piece of
yarn to the balloon and the other end securely around one ankle.
When you give the signal, time kids as they work together to stomp
everyone’s “grapes.” Then have kids each inflate another balloon to
try again. Before you give the signal, let kids discuss strategies
for beating their first time.
When all the grapes are popped the second time, have kids
discuss how working together helped. Read aloud Galatians 6:2-3 and
discuss ways kids can help each other throughout the year.
