This game teaches kids that it’s important to surround themselves with good influences for protection from temptation.
Bible Connect: 1 Corinthians 10:13; 2 Corinthians 6:14
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 resist temptation?
