Woman at the Well: Running on Thirsty Bible Game For this game, every child will need two cups (one with water, one without) and a drinking straw. Have kids stand against one wall, and give each child a straw. Place cups with water on the ground near each child while placing empty cups on the floor about 10 feet away. Demonstrate how to hold water in the straw by dipping it in the cup, plugging the top with a finger, and lifting the straw. On “go,” give kids 60 seconds to see how much water they can transfer to their empty cups using only their straws. When time’s up, read aloud John 4:7-10. Then say: Talk about a time you were really thirsty and how you quenched your thirst. Read aloud John 4:11-14. Say: The woman drew water at the well, just like you drew water with your straws. Jesus, though, talked about a different kind of water. Ask: What “water” do you think Jesus talked about? What kinds of “thirsts” do you think Jesus’ water could quench? Hold up a cup of water and say: Just like the water the woman got out of the well, the water in this cup will run out but Jesus’ living water never runs out!
