# Games are arranged by three age groups: preschool, lower elementary, and upper elementary.
# Preschool games for Esther are "Who Will Lead?" and "The King's Sceptor", and for the topic, Following Jesus are "Herding the Sheep", "Come Along" and "Stop, Drop, and Follow".
# Lower elementary groups can play "Unseen Presence" or "The River Bend" for the topic, Faith, or they might play "Worry Whirl" for the topic, School.
# Upper elementary ages might play "Outsmart the Crushers" for the topic, Joy, and "True-False Tag" to reinforce a Truthfulness lesson.
# Preparation is simple, with few, easy-to-find game props (Bible, crayons, paper plates or nothing at all). Imagination is the primary equipment!
# Game plan includes follow-up discussion, questions for thought, or suggestion for Bible reading.

Playing games. Ask the children in your ministry what they love about your ministry and you're almost guaranteed to hear, 'Playing games.' Play is an integral part of childhood. And it's an integral part of ministry, too. As children play, they're having fun while they're learning. Games teach children about patience, respect, cooperation, and encouragement.
Games involve everyone, and they're a powerful tool for making a point. If you wanted to teach children about David and Goliath, you could sit them down in rows, tell them the story, and have them color in a picture of David. Or'you could have them play Human Slingshots (page 110), in which they link arms to make 'slings' and launch paper 'rocks' at a nine-foot-high target. Which do you think children will remember' Which will they enjoy'
The Humongous Book of Games for Children's Ministry has hundreds of games that connect with many different topics and hundreds of different Scriptures. The book is divided into three main sections: 'Preschool Games,' 'Lower Elementary Games,' and 'Upper Elementary Games.' If you're teaching your preschoolers about a topic and you need an opening game, just look at the table of contents to find the game that fits the point you're making. If you want your fifth-graders to understand a certain Scripture passage, just turn to the 'Scripture Index' in the back to find the game that brings the passage to life. If your second-graders need a change of pace, turn to the 'Energy Level Index' to find a high-energy game to liven things up.
The Humongous Book of Games for Children's Ministry probably has all the games you'll need. Have fun laughing, learning, and playing!
