5 Outside Games and Activities for Your Ministry

When it gets hot outside, these five action-packed, fun-filled games and activities not only are a blast to play, but also can help your kids dig into God’s Word. Check them out!


Outside Game 1: Dribble, Dribble, Splatter

It’s amazing what a cup of water can do to a simple game like Duck, Duck, Goose. Combine it with Ephesians 2:10, and you have a wet way to help kids discover that God has called them for his plan.

Outside Game 2: Ice Cold Toes

If your kids really need to cool down, this is the game for you! Based on the parable of the hidden treasure (Matthew 13:44-46), kids will find treasures in a kiddy pool full of ice using only their bare feet.

Outside Game 3: The Path

Kids ages 6 to 12 will love this twist on an obstacle course. Partners will have to help their blindfolded teammate traverse the course with simple, nonverbal clues. After the game, guide kids through a discussion of Psalm 121.

Outside Game 4: Anger Bubbles

Kids discover what James 1:19 means in this simple but fun game of bubble blowing. All you need are some bowls of water, straws, and dishwashing liquid and you’re ready to play.

Outside Game 5: Explosive Power

This is a new twist on the old science-fair classic volcano. Using some household items and Romans 1:20, you can create an experience that will help kids understand God’s power.
