Form two teams and have kids line up single file, facing forward
with about 3 feet between each person. The two lines should be
directly across from each other. Then have kids each take off their
shoes and place them behind their feet.
*Say: This is a race. The goal of this race is to be
the first team to have all its team members wearing their own
shoes. Run forward and slip your feet into the shoes of the person
in front of you. As soon as your feet are in those shoes as much as
possible, take your feet out, run to the next pair and do the same
thing. When you get to the front of your team's line, run to the
back of the line and start over. Keep doing this until you put your
own shoes on. The first team to work its way through the line so
every team member is wearing his or her shoes wins.
After the game, read aloud Psalm 139:13-16. Then *say: God made our feet
different from other people's feet. God made each of us different.
