Bible Game: Parable of the Seed

This Bible Game: Parable of the Seed will teach preschoolers about growing in their faith.

Age Level: 3 to 5

Bible Connect: The Parable of the Growing Seed (Mark 4:26-29)

Materials: A watering can and water

This game is a wet version of Duck, Duck, Goose. Have kids sit in a circle on the ground and choose one child to be the “Gardener.” The Gardener taps kids on the head as he or she says, “Seed!” When the Gardener says, “Grow!” and sprinkles a child’s head with the watering can, the Gardener puts down the can and runs from the selected child. If the Gardener is caught, he or she starts over. If the Gardener makes it to the empty spot, the child who was sprinkled gets to be the Gardener.

Dry-Off Debrief: Ask: What does a seed need to grow into a plant? What happens to a seed if it doesn’t have water? What does God give us to help us grow closer to him?
