Activity B4 - Lesson 3: Feed Your Neighbor Race

Sunday Schoolhouse Series Activity - Red Unit B4
Lesson 3: Deacons are Chosen to Serve (Acts 6:1 - 15)
Feed the Neighbor Race - Materials Needed:- Several empty food boxes
- blindfolds
- large box for each team

Break the kids into teams of two - or have bigger teams and rotate through the leader role and food delivering role.
This is a trust/cooperation game. One child will guide the blindfolded person on their team with verbal commands from one end of the room to the other. The goal is to bring the food (empty boxes) to their neighbors in need (large box/bin) one at a time. Whichever team finishes first wins. Place chairs and other obstacles in the way so the blindfolded person needs to trust in the honest commands of the leader directing them.
For younger children, the teacher could direct each of the students one at a time without making it a team competition.
Option: Have the children bring full boxes of food for the game. Once the game is complete the food can be donated to a local food shelf.

Help Your Neighbor Letters:
Choose a group and write letters of encouragement or thanks. Children could write letters of thanks to veterans, smaller children could make pictures to be dropped off at the local senior home, write letters of thanks to the pastors, etc.
