Object lesson - OT: Isaiah - Blow your dream forward
A fun object lesson on Isaiah's dream about peace
An exciting object lesson and game inspired by the prophet Isaiah's dream of peace. In ‘Blow your dream forward’, teams compete to score goals using straws and ping pong balls. Reflect on your dreams and discuss how Isaiah can achieve his dream of global peace.
This activity is part of a complete Sunday school lesson on Isaiah 2: 1 - 5.
View the idea below...
What you need:
two shoe boxes
ping pong balls
What do you do
At the two ends of the table, set up two shoe boxes as goals.
Create two or more teams.
Each child tries to blow the ball with his/her straw into the opponent's goal. The ball should not be touched with the hands.
If the ball rolls off the table, the opponent may blow the ball back into play from that spot.
The team with the most goals has won.
After the game, talk through dreams.
Also your dreams sometimes need to be blown further to achieve your dream. For example, if you want to become a soccer player, you have to go to soccer to learn it. If you want to become a farmer, you have to learn everything about a farm by visiting a farm, for example, etc.
