Rainforest BINGO 

Materials: Included VBS To Go

How to play

  • Each player will pick out the board that they want
  • One person calls out the animal
  • Players mark the animal on their board
  • When you get three in a row yell “BINGO!”

 

Moses, May I? 

Materials: Blindfold (can be played without a blindfold if one is not available)

How to Play

  • One person plays moses and the others are the children of Israel
  • To begin, Moses stands at one end of the room/yard, while everyone else lines up at the other end.
  • The children take turns asking “Moses, may I __?. For example, “Moses, may I take five steps forward?”
  • Moses replies, “Yes, you may, or “No, you may not do that, but you may ___ instead?, inserting a direction. Some options for Moses’ directions: Take __ steps backward, take ___ giant steps forward, take __ baby steps forward.
  • The children move closer to Moses but are sometimes led farther away. Even if Moses makes an unfavorable suggestion, the children must still perform it.
  • The first child to reach Moses wins. That child then becomes Moses and a new road begins.

 

Discussion Questions
  • What are the commandments? Who wrote them?
  • In the game, it was tempting to cheat because the leader was blindfolded. Why is it harder to make good choices when no one is watching us?
  • Our wrong choices are sins. They turn us away from God. We can feel lost just like the children of Israel. How are we forgiven for our sins?
