ADVENT WEEK TWO
Advent GPS: Week 1
HUMAN CHRISTMAS TREE
This weeks game is a fun one! Get your kids into small groups, (or one group if you have a small group) give them the challenge to decorate one of their group members as a Christmas tree!
Don't buy any new decorations, bring decorations from home, or ask families to bring some in for the day. Or as an alternative, let them get creative with nature and the materials they can find around them! Have fun, take some photos of your finished Human ChristmasTrees and feel free to share them on our facebook group page :)
You'll need a globe or map of some sort,
Inflatable globe: Throw the ball around the circle, when someone catches the ball get them to have a look at what country is closest to their right thumb
If you don't have a globe you could grab a ball and write country names around it
Spinning globe: Spin the globe get one of the kids to stop it with their finger and see what country their finger is on
Wall map: Spin a child who is blindfolded and then get them to point at a spot on the map
Once you have a country ask some questions about that country:
What do you know about this country?
What language do they speak?
What type of food do they eat?
Do you know how the celebrate Christmas?
Go around the circle and get the kids to offer prayers for that country
