Get to know you Good Friday Party Games

  1. A quick game of Guess Who? doubles as a class-bonding activity. Use it next time you have a few extra minutes to fill or want to help a new group of kids get to know each other.
  2. Here’s a game that requires absolutely NO supplies: gather your Sunday school class and ask a series of Would You Rather questions. You can divide the room into two sides and have students group according to their answers. A fun list of Christian Would You Rather questions includes these head-scratchers: Would you rather have seen the Red Sea being parted or Jesus walking on water? Would you rather have dinner with Moses or Paul? Have fun coming up with your own questions based on that day’s theme or your group’s particular interests.
  3. Play Switch Sides If to get your group moving and building relationships with each other.
  4. All you need is a ball of rainbow-colored yarn to play The String Game. Kids learn that while God created us differently, we’re connected to Him and each other through Jesus.
  5. After a high-energy Sunday School game, bring everyone’s focus back with a round of Silence. Kids work together to line up in a certain order, for example, oldest to youngest or by birth month. Here’s the catch: they have to do it all without talking. This game makes a great Bible connection with the story of Zechariah in Luke 1 or any other story where someone has lost the power of speech.
