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!
