Sand Relay

Thursday: Sand Relay
Elementary Bible Lesson: The Rich Young Man: Throw off Things that Entangle
Memory Verse: Matthew 19:29
Preschool Bible Lesson: The Paralytic Man
Age Groups:
  • elementary
  • preschool
  • teens
Equipment Needed:
  • sand
  • buckets
Divide the children into their red and blue teams. Stand each team in a straight line. Place a bucket full of sand at one end of each line and an empty bucket at the other end. The person next to the starting bucket begins on the whistle-blow by picking up handfuls of sand and passing them to the next person, who passes the sand to the next person, and so on down the line. At the end of the line, the last person puts it in the finish bucket. The team that gets the most sand into their bucket (or fills it fastest) wins.
If you have time to play again, dump the sand back into the starting buckets, and send the person from the end of the line to the front of the line.
Preschool: Play as one team, or make sand castles in a wading pool of sand.
Teens: The beginning sand bucket may be moved away from the starting line, so that the first person in line must make round trips to collect the sand, or you can have them stand farther apart so that they each must carry the sand a short distance to the next person.
