Bible games are a great addition to your Sunday school lesson. Jesus said in Matthew that when someone asks for your shirt, you should give him your coat also. He means that it’s important for us to share with others. This could mean sharing a meal, sharing clothes, or even sharing a seat. Let’s see how much we can share by playing a Bible game!
Bible Games Series: “Share-The-Chair Musical Chairs”
Enough chairs for each student in the class, CD/Tape player, music
Bible Games Object: Students will learn the importance of sharing by sharing a seat.
Bible Games Instructions:
Set chairs up like Musical Chairs, with one less chair than students, and every other chair facing the opposite direction. Play the music and have the students walk around in a circle. When the music stops, each student will find a seat except one. Instead of being eliminated, the student left standing must sit on
somebody’s lap or “share the chair”.
The person who ends up on the bottom of the shared chair gets two points. The person on the top gets one point. Those who don’t have to share yet don’t get
any points. There can be no vacant chairs.
Remove another chair and play the music again. At some point there will be so few seats that people are piled two and three high on one chair. Further points go
The person on the bottom of any seat gets the number of points as people on the chair. For example, if he has two people piled on top of him, that makes three
people on the chair. He will get three points. The person above him will get two points. The person on top will get one point. Everybody keeps track of their own points, but make sure they are on the right track.
Repeat these steps until everyone is seated on one chair. The person with the most points wins.
If you share with others, you will find others will share with you! What goes around comes around!
