Fun & Games

Wendy Douglas —  July 22, 2010

One of my favorite things to incorporate into our Sunday morning experience is large group games. Finding a game that compliments the lesson can be a challenge when you aren’t using a standard curriculum. Most curriculums contain a game within each week’s lesson plan, but even then you may have to adapt a game that works better for your kids. You can find many books, websites, and even television shows that will help with this.

Here are just a few that I recommend:

  • Minute to Win It: This television show has some really great games that uses every day household items and are easily adaptable to large group games. The website lists many of those games along with directions for each one.  http://www.nbc.com/minute-to-win-it/how-to/

One of the most fun games that we have played in Summit Kids was one adapted from Minute to Win It. We used “Face the Cookie” to compliment a lesson on facing our fears. The kids loved it and it prompted some really great conversations with their parents on the message that day.

What resources are you using for games?
