So right now the Sunday School rooms are in a bit of a rigamarol so the really young kids are combined with the next age up which means the lesson has to be really simple and short to keep the attention span of all the kids so even with songs and a craft there’s still about 10 extra minutes… so I was trying to think of a game that would interest both age groups…
Well the only thing that came to my mind was Duck, duck, duck GOOSE!!! Buuuuuuuut I was thinking there’s like no spiritual aspect to this game… how can I make it spiritual so it’s NOT just a game to fill time???
Hmmmm… oh I knoooooow…. I could make it Biblical… liiiiiiiike…. And I got the inspiration from God and ALL THE KIDS LOVED IT!!!!
Instead of Duck, duck GOOSE!!! We played, Then Peter said!!
Sooooooo you play it just like duck, duck GOOSE!!! Buuuuuuut you go around saying, Then Peter said, Then Peter said, Then Peter said, Then Peter said, Then Peter said, Then Peter said, REPENT!!!! Annnnnnnd if you’re the one they touch then you have to run around and get back to your spot in a prayerful/repentant position!!!!

It went soooooo great! The kids had a blast and the best part is that the Sunday School kids are memorizing the first part of Acts 2:38 without even trying!!!!
If we have time, we will probably play this with the kids this Sunday again and I plan to play this with my nieces and nephews and the next family get together!!!
Of course, I’m sharing the game on here BECAUSE, I’d love for you all to play the game as well!!!
