To play a game about identifying the right thing to do in certain situations
The children will explain that they need to say yes to God as Mary did.
You share your lunch with a child at school who forgot his or hers.
You take a pencil from the floor that you know belongs to someone else.
You cross the street walking home because you do not want to talk to your next-door neighbor.
You ask a new student to sit at your table for lunch.
You pick up the paper and trash as you walk around your block.
You talk about someone behind his or her back.
You invite someone to come to church with your family on Sunday.
Make sure that you have enough situation cards for each team to have a chance.
Encourage the children to come up with other situations that would show someone saying yes or no to God.
You may want to give stickers or a treat to the winners.
If there are children in your group with special needs (physical, visual, hearing, language, or behavioral disabilities), adapt the activity accordingly.
