This silly children’s Bible game, Apples and Oranges, will help kids discover everyone is important in God’s family because we’re each a part of the body of Christ.

Elementary Children’s Bible Game: Apples and Oranges
Form a circle. One child will pass an apple to the right around the circle. Another child will pass an orange to the left around the circle. The key to this game is that kids can’t pass the fruit with their hands. Kids can use their feet, elbows, or knees to pass the fruit. If someone drops the fruit or it touches the ground, the child must close his eyes to continue playing. Play continues until only one person with his or her eyes open remains.
Ask kids to talk about what was easy or difficult about the game. Ask kids what it was like to play with their eyes closed and how that affected the game. Help children make the connection between this Bible game and God’s family. Celebrate everyone’s contributions and emphasize everyone’s special role in God’s family.
