Time to pull out your poster board again for a fun little game for this week's Sharing Time. It's a cross between a "Candyland" type game and Checkers.
First you'll need to print out the checkboard pages, I've put them onto 8.5x11 pages for easy printing, you'll need about 8 to fit and glue onto a standard poster board. Also print out the 8 "scenerios" and then glue it onto the checkerboard where ever you'd like I would tape or contact paper over the checkerboard to avoid any rips or tears. You'll need some gems or something as the "checkers", the dollar store has the little gems that'll work great. You'll also need some magnets to keep all the pieces and poster on the board.
To play: Separating by "teams", begin by playing checkers. When one of the kids lands on a picture, you'll talk about the consequences that the kids think would happen. For example:
- paying tithing: blessings, obeying the commandments
- messy room: could get hurt, don't know where things are
and then no matter where they are they have to jump to the corresponding picture (there are just 4 different scenarios) and then continue playing like checkers
I've also included in the download blow ups of each of the little pictures so that all the kids can see.
Please take a minute to share a comment, I love reading them! They keep making me want to give FREEBIES! It's always wonderful to know that what you are putting up and writing about is worthwhile and people enjoy them. Questions?
