1 ACTIVITY: Human Knot Kid s Connect Guide September 16, 2015 We come together here to grow and strengthen one another in our faith. This game illustrates to students how we need to work together toward a common goal. Form groups of about 5-10 children (the larger the group, the more difficult the game). Groups stand shoulder to shoulder in a circle Students hold hands with two different people who AREN T standing right next to them. Kids untangle themselves without letting go of anyone s hands, until they are standing in an open circle again. If a group lets go, they should start from the beginning. The first team to untangle themselves wins. SAY: There s no way you would have been able to untangle yourselves if you didn t work together. That s why God gave us the church to go to, so there would be a place where we could come together to love God and show God s love to others. Let s watch this week s Bible story again to see how God wants us to treat one another. WATCH: Bible Story Recap & The Point (6:00) Review the Point: Sisters and brothers, let s all love one another. ASK: Ask if anyone remembers their verse from Sunday. Give kids the opportunity to recite the verse and motions. SAY: It s okay if you don t remember, we are going to go over it again tonight to make sure we can remember it. WATCH: Rehearse the Verse (1:42) Review the Verse: (1 John 4:7) Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Go over the verse and the motions with the kids during the video, and, then, again after the video. Then allow kids the opportunity to recite the verse. ASK: What does this verse tell us to do? ASK: What are some ways we can love others the way God loves us?

2 REVIEW QUESTIONS: Pick a few to go over with the kids Have the kids listen as you tell them the first part of a situation that could happen to them. Ask them to finish each situation by telling what they would do to show love. You may want to have the children role-play one or more of the situations. Use the following situations or create some of your own : 1. You are sitting at your bus stop waiting for the bus to come. You see another kid hurrying to catch the bus. They are trying to get there, but they won t get to the bus in time. The bus pulls up and the door opens. As you climb up the steps, you can tell they probably won t reach the bus in time. What could you do to show love for the other kid? 2. On Sunday morning you are walking into church. You see a mom with her baby in one arm and some books in the other. What could you do to show love for this lady? 3. When you arrive home from school, your mom is trying to cook dinner. Your little brother is fussing and crying because he wants your mom to read him a story. What could you do to show love for your mom and your little brother? 4. One Sunday at church, you meet a girl who hasn t came to church before. She is very shy and doesn t talk much. Later you see her standing by herself crying. What could you do to show love and help the new girl? OPTIONAL ACTIVITY IDEA Have the kids each write a letter to someone they love, explaining how much they care for that person. Younger children may draw pictures for people they love. Encourage the children to share their letters or drawings with the people for whom they made them. ACTIVITY GUIDE: THIS IS COLORING SHEET PRINTOUT Give the kids some time to color and do the activities on the Activity Guide if they would like. FILLER GUIDE: If you have a few minutes to kill before groups are over QUICK GAMES: If you have some time, play some games. They can be these games, board games, or any other games you can think of. Make sure everyone is playing safe and everyone is included.

3 Pictionary I Spy If there isn t a piece of paper available, draw something on the ground with your finger, allowing the kids to use their imaginations to guess. (Use simple objects ball, square, sun, etc.) Let other kids take turns drawing Hot Potato You can use a ball if available or pretty much any safe object that s around. Sneaky, Sneaky Designate one child as the leader While hanging out in small group, the leader will do a motion (ex: touch nose, close one eye, sit crisscross applesauce, etc.) As soon as someone sees the leader do the motion, they should copy it The last one to copy the motion becomes the leader for the next round Photo Shoot Allow the kids to cluster together Pretend to be a photographer in different situations Announce the situation to the kids and allow them to pose for the picture Ex: You re about to jump out of an airplane! You just ate a spider! You are meeting the president! You just scored the goal to win the Olympics! Your hair is blue! Freeze Dance Close eyes and allow kids to do their craziest dance moves (Play music if you can). At a random time, say Freeze! Any kids who don t freeze are out! Buzz Bomb Balloon (BALLOONS NEEDED) To begin this Christian children s icebreaker game, have the children stand in a large circle. Give each child a balloon that is not inflated. Place a target in the middle of the circle a large piece of colored construction works well or you can simple put a circle on the floor with masking tape. The children should be about ten feet away from the target. Have each child blow up the balloon and hold it shut. Either give the children different colors or write their initials on the balloons with permanent markers so you can tell who gets closest to the target. When the leader yells, Go! the children are to let go of their balloons and see whose balloon lands closest to the target.

4 If I Were One great icebreaker game that works well If I Were. The group simply takes turns saying statements that begin with If I were... For example, If I were a flower, I would be a daisy, because it is simple and pretty. Some other categories are, If I were a... food, animal, President, song, movie, book, car, airline, city, country, etc. For younger children, it might be best to give the prompt and let them finish the statement. Sometimes you get some really funny statements that will make everyone laugh. Line Tag "It" chases and tags another. These two players hold hands, run and tag together. When the line gets to be four to six people long, split to form two groups. When everyone is caught, they go after the teacher. Leaning Tower of Pisa Provide plenty of blocks or tin cans for children to stack as high as they can in one minute. The highest standing tower wins. Chatter Bee Two players stand back-to-back. At the signal, they face and chatter/talk nonstop for 30 seconds about a specific topic such as a Bible story they recently studied or another familiar subject. Just do two at a time so it's not chaotic. A judge decides who did the best talking. Criteria for the best could be: fewer hesitations, creative, funny, most accurate and informative. Guess Who I Am? The teacher picks a "guesser" to start. The "guesser" faces a wall with his or her back to the group. The teacher points to another person. That person stands behind the "guesser" and says, "Guess who I am?" Funny voices make it harder to guess. The player gets two guesses, and then the "voice" becomes the "guesser." Secret Code (PAPER & PENCILS NEEDED) Give players a piece of paper and a pencil. The leader reads four or five letters and children "break" the code. Example: ZIBOP could be "zebras in Bryan's office play." Everyone reads his or her message. Complete sentences are encouraged.

5 Human Web Form two fairly equal groups. Have each group hold hands, forming a circle, and then have them all walk forward until they are close together and the circle is small and tight. Drop hands. Now each kid should grab any two different hands except for those of his immediate neighbor. This will form a colossal mess! Next comes the fun part! This kids need to untangle themselves without letting go of any hands. They will have to step over arms, duck under, and work at it; but it is fun and challenging! Mummy Game (TWO ROLLS OF TOILET PAPER NEEDED) Select one boy and one girl to become the "mummies" and the remaining volunteers to be the "wrapper." At your prompt to "GO!" the wrappers will begin to quickly wrap the mummies with the entire roll of toilet paper. Encourage them to be careful not to tear the paper. The first team to finish the entire roll wins. Balloon Over and Under (BALLOONS NEEDED) You will need two blown up balloons. Divide the students into equal teams. Each team must stand in a single file line. Hand an inflated balloon to the first person on each time. When you say "GO," they must pass the balloon (you could use something like a roll of toilet paper as well) backwards over their heads to the team members behind them. That person then passes it under -- through their legs -- and they alternate over & under. Whichever team to get the balloon to the last person in line first wins. GET TO KNOW YOU QUESTIONS: Ask these questions to get to know your kids during any free time you have in the lesson. What is your favorite time of year? Why? What school do you go to? What grade? What are your favorite games to play? What is something you learned at school this week? What s your favorite song, movie, sport, etc?
