  1. Thank you so much! This is very helpful tool for our Sunday school Ministry. Moreover it’s free!
    God bless you and your family.

  2. Thank you so very much. The lesson plans and games were such great help to our Children’s Church. As I am blessed, you and your family will be blessed more abundantly.

  3. This is a game we created in VBS to use with a lesson about Christ as our substitute. It can also teach how members of Christ’s body need each other. We played it outside but can be adapted for indoors. The object is for each kid to complete a circuit of actions with several stations. The actions must be selected so that at least one will be impossible for each child and they will need a substitute. They cannot move onto the next station in the circuit unless they (or the substitute) completes the task at the current station. Whenever a child cannot complete an action, they can call a substitute to do it. Our stations included riding a tiny tricycle, tossing a horseshoe twenty feet, hitting a golf ball, spinning a hula hoop around one’s waist a certain number of times, etc. The idea is to have things that only small kids can do, such as putting their hand through a tiny opening to retrieve an object (be sure their hand can easily be released), riding a tiny tricycle, etc…things only strong kids can do (tossing a horseshoe), things only coordinated or limber kids can do (hula hoop, hitting a golf ball), tall kids (touch something high up), small kids (crawl under a low stool), intellectual kids (reading or a mental puzzle). Care must be taken to have at least one task that each participant can excel at. No one must be humiliated. If teaching Christ as substitute, make the point that just as each child needed a substitute at some point to finish the circuit, so we need Christ as our substitute. If teaching the body of Christ, emphasize that each person has a place in the body of Christ and each needs the others for a fully functioning church. To teach the latter, you might position each child at the station they do best and pass a baton around the stations, racing through the sequence two or three times to see how fast and well it can be done when each shares his/her talent for the good of all.
