This game teaches kids that it’s important to surround
themselves with good influences for protection from
Bible Connect: 1 Corinthians 10:13; 2 Corinthians
Play: Ask for two volunteers-one to be the Tempted
and the other the Temptor-in a group of no more than eight kids.
The object of the game is to protect the Tempted, who’ll stand in
the center of the group’s tight circle. The Temptor tries to tag
the child in the center by reaching through the circle. Kids in the
circle can maneuver to keep the Temptor out, but they must stay
locked arm-in-arm. When the Tempted gets tagged, new kids get to be
the Tempted and the Temptor.
Cool Down: Ask: How have you been tempted this
past week? How does having Christian friends’ support help you
