game to teach kids how important it is to support each other as
Christians trying to spread the good news about Jesus.
Bible Connect: Mark 16:15; Romans 1:16
Stuff: You'll need candy bars and clear packing
Play: Before kids arrive, tape candy bars onto the
wall high enough so kids can't reach them without standing on
Tell kids the object of the game is to reach the candy bars without
the help of furniture or other people.
Let kids try to grab the candy bars. Once they've given up, have
them form groups of three and work together to reach the candy
bars. Two kids can form a step by locking their hands together and
lifting the third person high enough to reach a candy bar for all
Cool Down: Ask kids to compare their first attempt
to reach the candy bars with their second. Ask: What ways do you
tell your friends about your faith? Why is it important to work
together and support each other as Christians? How can you support
a friend this week?
