Elementary and Preteen Game: Summer Splash Form teams and have each team line up. Give each team a paper cup. Have team members each run to a central water basin, fill up their cup, put it on their head, run back without touching the cup with their hands, and pour the remaining contents (if any) into a team jar. After everyone goes, ask: How would you like to carry water every day from a water source to your house? Say: In many countries, carrying water isn’t a game. People have to carry water on their heads just to have enough water for their daily needs. Ask: What are modern conveniences we can be thankful for in our country? Why do you think God allowed you to be born here instead of in a less-developed country? What obligations do we have to people who are less fortunate? Read aloud 1 John 3:16-18. Close in prayer, asking God to show kids ways to help people who are less fortunate. Brian Mason Glen Allen, Virginia Looking for more ideas for summer? Check out these posts!
