In our story today the angel Gabriel tells Mary that Jesus will be the King of Israel and that there will be no end to his reign.

What does a king do? Is it easy or hard to obey a king?

The King or Queen says

 

What do you need:

- a toy crown

What do to:

This is an amended version of the well-known game ‘Simon says’.

Have the children stand in a circle, and have a leader stand in the middle of the circle. The leader is the king or queen, and wears the crown. The children have to obey him or her, but only if they use the words ‘The king says’ . So if the king says ‘The king says sit down’, then they have to sit down, but if the king only says ‘Sit down’ then they have to stay standing. The children who do sit down are out.
You can also have the children take it in turns to be the ‘king’ or ‘queen’.

In what ways is this similar to what a real king or queen would do? Why/ why not?
What sort of King is Jesus do you think?

- Who knows what this means? What do you do to honour a king or a queen? 

The children take it in turns to be the king or queen. They put on the crown and walk around the room pretending to be royal. The other children then ‘honour’ them – cheering, clapping, making way for them.  When each child has had a turn, ask them what it felt like to be a king or queen. What did you like/ not like about it?

504. Five powerful benefits of using Bible games in your children’s ministry


Are Bible games just an element of ‘clean’ (or sometimes messy) fun within your Sunday school lesson of kids ministry?

Being one, but also being different

Paul writes in Philippians 2:2 that we have fellowship with and through the Spirit and urges us to be one in mind and spirit. What does it mean to be one? Does it mean that we should all be the same? Or is it actually a good thing that we’re different?

How do we stay humble? 

Put the bottles on the floor in a mixed pattern of taller/shorter bottles, and put a ping pong ball on the top of each one. Paul says that we shouldn’t think that we are more important than other people, and think of ourselves as better than them. Some of these bottles think they are more important than the others – they are the taller ones. See if you can shoot them down!!

438. Psalm 150 - Thank you paper chain


Dear God, I am really thankful for...

In Psalm 150 the writer calls us to praise God. When we praise God we are also thanking him for who he is and what he does. What are we thankful for? Do we tell God that we are thankful? Let’s make a paper chain of all sorts of things that we are thankful for.

Make sure you have lots of strips of coloured paper. Ask the children to write up as many things as possible that they are thankful for, one thing per piece of paper. Make a paper chain of the strips of paper.

Paper Chain to thank God with

You can make a game of it, to see how many things the children can think of in a certain time. You can help them by asking them questions, like:

- What are you grateful for at school, at home, or on the street?
- What are you good at? Can you thank God for these things?

Close with a short prayer to thank God for everything that we are grateful for. 

What do you need: 

- Coloured strips of paper
- Crayons or pens
- Stapler or cellotape

437. Psalm 150 - Hallelujah tag


Hallelujah - I cannot stop singing to the Lord

Play a game of tag, and ask everyone to sing a song together while they are playing. Sing a Chistian song that everyone knows. One of the children is the tagger. If you’ve been tagged, then you have to stop singing and stand still. If one of the other 'free' children tags you free, you shout 'Hallelujah' and you start singing again.

Depending on the group you can explain the meaning of 'Hallelujah' before or after the game. Hallelujah means: I have to sing to the Lord. It's like I cannot stop!

Read Psalm 150 together with the children. Do you think that the author of Psalm 150 was able to stop with singing to the Lord?

436. Psalm 150 - A present for Him


Do you think God likes presents?

Psalm 150 is like a present that the writer gives to God. Divide the group into groups of three children. One of the children in each group is going to be the present. The other two are going to wrap him or her up as a present. Which group has wrapped up their present first? The present is finished when you can’t see any part of the child, and there’s a lovely ribbon around it. Which group is quickest?

432. Psalm 150 - Crow, bark, bleat, moo for the Lord?


Can animals worship God as well?

prairie dog 1470659 960 720

 
A few things you could do with this are:

Animal noise game:

You need: a room that you can make dark.

Make sure the room is dark. Ask the children to hide in it.  Each child chooses their own animal noise. Get them to make their noise while they are hidden. One child has to ‘listen’ the others out of hiding. If they guess which animal it is and who is making the sound, then that child will have to come out of hiding.

Guess the animal:

You need: a cd with animal noises, or an app with animal sounds on a phone. Use the sounds of the mammals.

Ask the children to guess which animal they are going to listen to. Give them 10 sounds and ask them to list what they have heard.
