Want to add some extra games? Here’s an extra game for each camp!

Creation Camp

God spoke, and it was there! Can your kids think of creation that quickly?


Creation Concentration

You’ll Need:

  • ball

Have kids stand in a circle. Toss the ball around. When kids catch the ball, they have 2 seconds to shout out the name of something God created, such as a zebra or an oak tree. Then the child will pass the ball to someone else. If a child can’t think of a creation in time, or if they repeat something that’s been said, he or she must sit down. But they can get right back in the game by jumping up if someone else gets stuck and shouting out an answer.

Ask:

  • What was it like to think of things God created so quickly?
  • How do you think God created the world so quickly?

Heart Camp

Kids will practice seeing how everyone is different, but we’re all loved by God.

Guess Who?

Have kids stand in a circle. Choose one child to start the game. That child will secretly think of someone else in the circle and name one thing they have in common with that person, and one thing that’s different about them. For instance, “We’re both girls, butI’m wearing sneakers and she’s wearing flip flops.” The other kids will try to guess who the person is thinking of.

Ask:

  • Why is it important to understand how people are different from you?
  • How can you find things to love about someone who seems very different from you?

God’s Planarama

It looks like a simple game, but kids will have to figure out your plan!

You’ll Need:

  • sidewalk chalk,
  • paper,
  • pen

Before kids arrive, use sidewalk chalk to make a 5×5 grid of squares. (If you’re inside, use masking tape instead.) Decide a route kids have to go in order to get from one side of the grid to the other, and map that out on your paper. For example, they may need to start with the 3rd square in the bottom row, then step right, then forward, then left, and so on.

Have kids take turns attempting to get through the grid. With each step, tell them whether or not they are correct. If they made an incorrect step, it’s the next person’s turn. Kids will need to watch others take a turn so they can learn the correct path and try to add to it. Once one person determines your plan, let everyone have a turn walking through the grid correctly.\

Read Proverbs 16:9.

Ask:

  • How was this game like or unlike trying to figure out God’s plan?
