Bible Game Objective
One player, the "sheep," will draw arrows using chalk to give clues as to where he or she can be found by the "shepherd," the rest of the players. (You might decide to have two players to be the sheep.)
How To Play
The sheep are given a head start, (2-5 minutes-decide time before playing). At the go, the sheep hide from the shepherd. As the sheep run to hide, they must mark arrows with chalk on the pavement, walls, or trees, to give clues as to where they are going. (Make sure you have permission to mark on walls with chalk.) While the sheep hide, the shepherd(s) cannot peek. When time's up, the shepherd(s) head out to find the sheep. The shepherd that finds the sheep becomes the sheep in the next round of play. Use a different color of chalk in the next round of play. For added fun, play at night with flashlights.
*The sheep in our game left clues so the shepherd could find them. But Jesus, our Shepherd, knows and sees everything. He finds us even when we don't want to be found!
