Father’s Day Bible Game: Dad’s Closet- Dress & Impress
This Father’s Day Bible game will help students realize how incredibly busy dads can be…and it will encourage both respect and laughter! But you don’t have to wait for Father’s Day to enjoy this Bible game – it’s also a great activity to help remind children the rest of the year as well.
• Three ties
• Three baseball caps
• Three men’s jackets
• Three men’s shirts
• Three pairs of men’s shoes
Students will have to race to “dress and impress” as they mimic their dads.
God gave us dads to help us, protect us, and guide to become spiritual beings as we grow. But, guess what? Dads have an awfully lot to do! They’re not just responsible for us; they’re responsible for businesses and church groups and making sure lots of the bills get paid and helping out Mom. Here’s a game that can help us appreciate how busy dad’s are. Let’s “walk in their shoes” and “dress to impress!”
• Place a pile of dad-like-items on the floor two feet apart from each other
1. If possible, split the class into three equal teams.
2. Have students form three lines five feet in front of the piles of dad-like items and two feet apart from each other.
3. When you say “Go!” the first student in each line will run to the pile of clothes and put every item on them as fast as they can.
4. They will then run back to their line and undress.
5. Once the three students have placed the dad-like items on the ground in front of their line, they must run to the back of their line and sit down.
6. Then the next student will dress themselves and run to where the pile was before undress and run to the back of their line.
7. The pattern repeats until every student has dressed liked Dad and undressed.
8. The first team to have all of their members finish wins.
It’s also said that fathers “have to wear many hats,” meaning they are in charge of families, businesses and communities. One way we can thank God for our dad’s leadership is to remember each and every day to do what the Bible says. Proverbs 23:22 says, “Listen to your father, who gave you life!”
