The best part is, there’s nothing to set up! You’ll want to keep this game in your back pocket for the next time class runs long or the kids start to get antsy. High-Energy Bible Game: Shepherd and Sheep Tag To play this game form two teams. Have teams form two lines facing each other in the center of the room. Designate one team as the shepherds and one team as the sheep. When the leader calls “sheep,” have the sheep run to tag the shepherds before they can run to the “safe” wall behind them. If “shepherds” is called, the shepherds chase the sheep to their safe wall. Anyone caught must join the opponent’s team. The game continues until all have become shepherds or sheep. To add excitement, draw out the first sound of the team names like this “shhhhhe-perds!” This way, the kids are kept on their toes! Jan Tomlinson Cut Bank, Montana Looking for more ministry games?
