David Danced (2 Samuel 6) | Story

 
David Danced (2 Samuel 6) | Story

Today’s bible hero is David because he shows us the gift of DANCE

Essential Teachers notes:
If you had to sum up this story in non religious terms it would be a guy went to collect something precious and did an embarrassing ‘dad dance’ all the way home. The story here doesn’t mention it but they also handed out cake to everyone at the end! David however would point to this event as an outpouring of thanks and joy. If even the king can humble himself and look foolish how much more should the people rejoice!

By the reactions we get in this story the famous dance of David, in his skimpy linen slip, was much more a “dad dance” than anything technically stunning – but, partly, that is the point. The dance is an outflowing of joy and this craft captures that simply. David Danced (2 Samuel 6)  | Craft 1

King of the tower – the aim of this game is to get your ‘king’ (ideally a piece from a board game) higher than anyone else’s. Give each student the same number of “building blocks” and a time limit of 1 minute. Building blocks can be anything, not just blocks! (piece of paper, cup, sticky tape…)
