The least of these (Matthew 25:31-46) | Play

 

The least of these passage talks about an act of sorting. Sorting is something we learn from an early age and so lends itself well to games. The other element of the sorting is the revelation of truth. For very young children any sorting game, toddler toys, wrapped boxes, or even just coloured scarfs can be a helpful way in. Here are some simple ideas for game and activities. (We used.*)

All about us – the children can sort themselves into groups according to age, colour of clothes, eye colour, type of shoes, or other obvious physical features. Trying to avoid boy/girl splits, where possible, will help mix the group.

Truth or half truth* – reading two statements get the children to move from one side of the room to the other according to which statement is true. including some religious statements like “Jesus loves me vs Jesus loves everybody” can lead well into the teaching.

Water dash – this works well outside and in hot weather, half fill plastic cups with water, drop food colouring into about half the cups, so a quarter of the cups end up one colour and a quarter another. the children then have to fill their teams bucket with just one colour. They should have to use at least some of the clear liquid to show how our actions spread.

Shape Recognition – both limited space sit down games and making a race, work well when you draw round some objects and then get the youngsters to replace the right object in the empty gap. any household iten will do but shapes with thin parts like scissors are especially effective.
