Game: The Lost Coins

THE LOST COINS
BEST FOR: GRADES K-6
ACTIVITY LEVEL: HIGH
Beforehand, spread out one or two bales of hay on the grass. If
you’ll play this game inside, place the hay on a large sheet of
plastic. Sprinkle several pennies into the hay and toss the hay
around. (If you don’t have access to hay or straw, use shredded
paper, packing peanuts or mud.)

When children arrive, encourage them to search through the hay to
find the lost coins. Whenever a child finds a coin, lead all the
children in celebrating.

After all the coins have been found or children tire of this game,
read aloud the parable of the lost coin from Luke 15:8-10. Ask children to compare their
experience and feelings in searching for the coins to the story
from scripture.
