Focus: Nearly all of our daily activities in life involve some measure of faith. This game
will encourage children to realize we exercise our faith on a daily basis.
A great way to improve listening and memory skills too!
Instructions: Teacher and students stand in a circle. Before playing discuss possible "faith-verbs" that could be
used, e.g. running, jumping, nodding head, wiggling fingers, raising
arms, kicking legs, etc. Tell children to have a few actions in mind
so when it is their turn they know what to say.
Teacher begins by saying, "I exercise my faith when I walk."
(Everyone begins walking in place.)
Player to the right goes next
by saying the sentence and then adding a new "faith-verb."
"I exercise my faith
when I walk and when I _______."
(The new faith-verb and action is added to the previous action.)
Next player takes his or her turn and adds another faith-verb to the sentence.
"I exercise my faith when I walk, and when I run, and when I ________."
