557. Big Tummy race


A fun game about the Bible story of the pregnant Mary meeting her pregnant aunt Elisabeth

What do you need:
- balloons
- an obstacle course in your location

What to do:
Tell the children that in today’s story, two pregnant women meet each other.

Divide the group into two and hold a relay race – set out an obstacle course and give each group a balloon.

When you say go, the first child in each team has to put the balloon up their t-shirt/jumper and run round the course. When they get back to the start they give the balloon to the next child in their group. If the balloon bursts the group has to blow up a new one before they can continue with the race.

The winning group is the one in which all the children have completed the course.
