Our Primary President asked if I could do Sharing Time for her tomorrow, so as I was preparing, I thought of a game that might be really fun. Hope you like it!
What you will need:
and a Marker
Get your balloons and blow them up, but DON'T tie them. Once they're blown up, write a scripture reference on the balloon (you'll probably have to have a helper with this). After you have written the scripture, let it dry, then deflate the balloon. Continue doing this until you have written all of your scriptures onto a balloon.
For the game:
Split the children into 2-3 teams. Have one child from each team come up to the front. Hand them each a balloon, and tell them that on the balloon is a scripture reference. They must blow up the balloon in order to know what scripture they need to look up. On 'go' have the children begin blowing up their balloon. Once their balloon is blown up, the team may look up the scripture. Tell the children that they can only look at their team's balloon. They must wait until it is blown up, to look up their scripture.
Before they blow up the balloon, you could ask them a specific question that will be answered by the scripture, have them identify who is speaking in that scripture, etc. Once the team has found the scripture and has found the answer they can raise their hand, or have them run to the front and sit in a chair. Once all teams have had a chance to find the scripture, have the team that found if first read the scripture and answer the question. If they are correct award them a certain number of points. The team that came in second, if answers are correct, award them a certain number of points, etc.
You could play this game for this week's or next week's Sharing Time. Write the scripture reference on the balloon. Have the children blow up the balloon, look up the scripture to find out what Prophet it is.
