Improving Children's Games

> hi, I just want to know how to improve children's games

First, determine the object of the game: to reinforce a lesson, encourage friendships or trust, an icebreaker activity, etc.? Once you know this, you can use established indoor or outdoor games to suit your situation. For some examples of this, check out the following two games: Bible 4-Square (based on 4-Square):
and Missing the Mark (a bulls eye type game):

For more game ideas, following the Bible Games link in the bright, green box, above. 


Pocket Ideas?

My idea/comment is really an inquiry I guess…has anyone worked up any classes using the Pocket ideas – stories using manila file folders? There was a book out a few years back but having trouble locating that as well. I thought maybe someone in your group had already done it.



3) Build a Snowman for Jesus

Don't you just love seeing the beautiful snow covering the dark landscape? It turns a very dark and depressing winter day into a beautiful, sparkling clean landscape. A beautiful snowfall is so refreshing. In fact seeing snow outside reminds me of JESUS!!! --- and the snow is FREE! ...

To get the rest of this lesson, and some craft activities to go with it, follow the link above, in the bright, green box, to Object Talks. Once there, choose the Bible Lesson with Special Activities link. 

Make sure you forward this activity to your friends too!
