Kids will have a ball playing this fun game that demonstrates
how important it is to help our friends.
Tie a rope to two chairs and stretch it across your room. Form
two teams and have teams stand on opposite sides of the rope. Give
each team a small blanket or twin sheet. Have team members hold the
edges of their team's blanket.
Throw several small, foam rubber balls on one team's blanket.
Have those team members work together to toss the balls from their
blanket over the rope to the other blanket. Encourage kids on the
receiving side to try to catch all the balls. Then have them toss
the balls back to the other side.
Continue tossing several times or until children tire of this
game. After the game, have children gather around you.
Ask: When were you most successful at this
game? How important is it for friends to help each other? How do
you help your friends?
Say: Proverbs 17:17 says that a friend loves at all
times. What does it mean to love at all times? When is it most
difficult to love or help your friends? What's one way you can help
a friend this week?
Say: Let's remember this week how important it
is to help our friends.
