This crazy game will help kids discover everyone is important in
Bible Connect: 1 Corinthians 12:12-27
Stuff: You'll need an apple and an orange.
Play: Form a circle. One child will pass an apple to the
right around the circle. Another child will pass an orange to the
left around the circle. The key to this game is that kids can't
pass the fruit with their hands. Kids can use their feet, elbows,
or knees to pass the fruit. If someone drops the fruit or it
touches the ground, the child must close his eyes to continue
playing. Play continues until only one person with his or her eyes
Cool Down: Ask kids to talk about what was easy or
difficult about the game. Ask kids what it was like to play with
their eyes closed and how that affected the game. Help kids make
the connection between this game and God's family. Celebrate
everyone's contributions and emphasize everyone's special role in
