Summertime often brings lots of new kids and visitors to
children’s ministry. Use this version of Hot Potato to encourage
kids to learn more about each other.
You’ll need a small ball and a kitchen timer.
Have kids sit in a circle and play a game of Hot Potato-passing
the ball around the circle until a timer sounds after intervals of
5 to 30 seconds. The child who ends up with the ball must
answer three questions other kids ask him or her. Encourage kids to
ask questions that help them get to know each other as well as some
silly questions to generate laughter and fun.
