Game - Let that balloon fly... - FREE

The Hebrew word for the Holy Spirit is "Ruach," which means wind.  The believers don't just hear the sound of a strong wind, but the Wind of God has come into them and is leading them forward. The believers immediately spring into action and start telling everyone about the good deeds of God. In this game we dwell on this. 

What do you need:

- balloons
- masking tape 

Let that balloon fly fun bible game on pentecost and holy spirit sunday school

Preparation:

You will need a large play area for this. Tape a line on one side of the room with masking tape and tape a second line on the other side of the room.

What do you do: 

Tell:
The Hebrew word for the Holy Spirit is "Ruach," which means wind.  The believers not only hear the sound of a strong wind, but the Wind of God has come into them and is leading them forward. The believers immediately spring into action and start telling everyone about the good deeds of God. Today we are going to use our breath, which is also a type of wind, to blow up a balloon and put it into action. 

Do:
Divide the children into groups of four to five children. 
Put them in a row next to each other and give them all an empty balloon. 

The children must inflate the balloon and release it toward the line on the other side of the room. Of course, they can't do this in one go because the balloon might go the other way. The children walk to the balloon, pick it up, but must remain standing where the balloon fell. From this spot, they inflate the balloon again and try to shoot it towards the line again. 

Who needs the least number of attempts to make the balloon fly on the other side of the line?
