Runaway Game

Children's Ministry Magazine

This family-oriented game is a great way to teach kids that God's forgiveness is bigger than anything that we can imagine. If you don't believe us, just ask Jonah!

For this game, have family members form a circle and put their hands behind their backs. Choose someone to be "Jonah," and give Jonah an object such as a plastic ball or small toy. Jonah will carry the object around the outside of the circle, while family members say, "Jonah, Jonah disobeyed. God forgave him anyway."

At the end of the phrase, Jonah will put the object into another family member's hands, and that person will chase Jonah around the circle. If Jonah makes it back to the open spot in the circle without being tagged, the person holding the object will be Jonah, and the game begins all over again.
