Elementary + Preteen Game: Ultimate Keep-Away

Everyone gets to play, but everyone also gets left out in this ultimate keep-away Bible game for preteens and elementary-aged kids.


Scripture: Romans 15:5-7

You’ll Need:

  • Two balls per team and
  • a Bible

Elementary + Preteen Game: Ultimate Keep-Away

Form teams of six. In this game, teams pass their balls without letting another team steal their players. Kids can run, stand, or jump as they pass the balls among their team members without getting tagged by someone from another team. If a child gets tagged while holding the ball, he or she joins the other team. The goal is to be the team with the most people at the end.

Read aloud the Scripture.

Afterward, ask:

  • What was it like to get tagged in this game?
  • When have you wanted others to be in your friend group as much as you wanted to tag people in this game?
  • How can you accept others the way Jesus does?
