This month, we’ve been talking about how life is like a puzzle — we only see one piece, but God’s got the BIG PICTURE.  Naturally, in order to make the theme come alive, we had to do a few puzzle games.  One game was having two kids race to put together their own 24 piece puzzle.  They had a minute to do it, and they were blindfolded.  This week, I decided to go out on a limb and use some music to liven things up a bit.

As I called up two volunteers, I started playing the Sandstorm track (which, by the way, I got for FREE on Freegal — more on that later!).  It starts out quiet and just as I announced the participants would blindfolded, the music picked up, throwing all the kids into a frenzy.

The timing was perfect.   I couldn’t have planned it better if I planned it.  Which I didn’t.

Then, the gamers got to work putting together their puzzles.  Of course, neither of them got a single piece put in place, but it was still super exciting because of the music.  Kids were hyped and involved and it was a great intro to the lesson.

Normally, I avoid using music and sound effects because it is just too much work (and too many potential glitches!), but once in awhile, it really amps up the program. I was watching the Orange Conference live last night as a guy told the Big God Story in 6 time periods.  In each time period, he had a little song or a ditty and it really gave the performance an edge.

So this week, step out an add a little something extra to your lesson time and let me know how it goes!
