Icebreaker - OT: Abram (5) and a pregnant Hagar: Good and bad: It's close together
Can the children keep saying good things about each other? A fun icebreaker...
In our story today, good and bad things happen at the same time. Sarai can no longer see anything good about Hagar and only sees the bad things she does or doesn't do. Hagar discovers two very good things about God. Good and bad - they can happen at the same time.
This activity is part of a complete Sunday school lesson on the Bible story in Genesis 16: 1-16 of Hagar running away from the bullying Sarai and being found by God.
View the idea below...
What you need:
To start, we will play a game called "You are…Uh!?" We will go around the circle and each child will say something positive about their neighbour, either something they can do well or what they look like. If a child cannot think of anything, they will say "Uh!" and they are out.
All the children sit in a circle and take turns to say something positive about their neighbour.
How long can we keep this game going? Let's see how many positive things we can say about each other.
The "Good and Bad - It's Close Together" icebreaker is a fun and interactive way for children to learn about the concept of good and bad things being close together.
By saying positive things about each other, children can understand the importance of looking for the good in others and focusing on positive qualities.
This icebreaker can also help to create a positive and welcoming environment for the children in the classroom.
