Games and Learning Activities

Children love to play games and participate in activities and so do I.   It is a fun way to learn.  If I play games I try to choose those that have enough skill and chance involved that everyone can win some games sometimes.   Team or partner games are fun and sometimes it is boys against girls.  As a rule, I don’t give out prizes for games.  We play for the fun of it in my classes.

    Game idea: Thanksgiving Chrades
    Kids spend a 5-10 minutes writing or drawing what they’re thankful for on index cards. Put all the cards together. Ask an adult to go first to demonstrate the game. Then ask for kids to volunteer to select one card and try to make the others guess what was written on the card. Players can use the white-board, can make sounds and gestures but not words. If class is large, use a timer and allow 60 seconds so all the kids get a chance to play. 🙂

    Thank you so much for your wonderful ideas and lessons. We lead Junior Church, for 6 10 year olds, once a month. This week we’re doing Thanksgiving, The Ten Lepers. After the sermon and review we’ll try this adapation on Chrades; our group loves active games.

    Hi, just wanted to let you know that I appreciate your website. I teach a Sunday school class for 3-5 year olds and sometimes have trouble adapting the lesson to their age group. Thanks for the great resources and ideas all in one place; I am bookmarking you! :^)

      Hi Karen

      Thanks for your comment. I’m glad you’ve found some ideas that you can use for teaching 3-5 year olds. What a fun age to teach! I just wrote a page with help for teaching 3-5 year olds. If you come across any great ideas that work in your class feel free to add them to the comment section at the bottom of the page. We are all looking for ways to connect children to God.

      God Bless you as you continue to teach.
