Preteen Bible Game: Burden-Sharing Dog Sled Relay

Use this preteen Bible game for kids to teach them to share one another’s burdens.


You’ll need:

  • Long pieces of cardboard, and
  • strong rope

Preteen Bible Game: Burden-Sharing Dog Sled Relay

Construct simple dog sleds from long pieces of cardboard. The side-piece of a refrigerator box will work well. Poke two holes in one short end of the cardboard and thread a piece of strong rope through the holes. Tie a loop in the rope to make a handle for the dog sled.

Form teams of four. Mark off an area of uncarpeted floor into lanes for the dog sled racers. Each person on the team will pull his teammates one-quarter of the way down the lane. Then teammates switch until everyone has a turn.

Afterward, read aloud Galatians 6:2. Discuss what it means to bear one another’s burdens and to help each other when it’s not easy to do so.
