Recently, we covered Matthew 14 during our Wednesday night program, talking about Jesus walking on the water. For game time, we did a little “walking on the water” of our own, just like Peter. Check it out!
Want to play too?
What you need:
- Footprints (we did a separate color for each team/age group)
- Large open space
- Tape (I used clear packing tape)
What you do:
Set up the feet in a left – right pattern going across the floor. To add an extra challenge for the older kids, either make their foot adorned line longer or space it further apart making it harder to jump from foot to foot.
Line kids up in groups (ages, small groups, etc) and put everyone behind a certain mark. On the count of three, the first person in line runs along the feet, being careful to ONLY step on the feet.
They must race to the end of the line, touch the ground and then return to tag the next person, relay style.
Once a child has completed the “walking on water” run, they should sit down so it is clear who still needs to run. Once everyone on the team is sitting, that team wins! Have fun!
