One Cool Bible Game: Ice Cold Toes

Ice Cold Toes will help kids understand the value of the kingdom of heaven.


Activity Set Up

Ice -toes

Age Level: 6 to 12

Bible Connect: The Parable of the Hidden Treasure (Matthew 13:44-46)

You’ll need:

  • A kiddie pool,
  • ice cubes,
  • water,
  • ice cube trays,
  • and green food coloring

Directions for Ice Cold Toes

Prior to the game, freeze a dozen ice cubes dyed with green food coloring. Fill the bottom of the kiddie pool with ice cubes and mix in the green ice cubes.

Have kids remove their shoes and socks. Challenge them to retrieve the green ice cubes—which represent the treasure—out of the pool using only their toes.

Ask:

  • What, if any, obstacles did you face when trying to get the treasure?
  • To what lengths would you go to pursue your treasure? Explain.

Read aloud the Scripture.

Ask:

  • What do you treasure?
  • Why does Jesus compare heaven to a treasure?
