Game of the week: Human Knot

This is an all time classic icebreaker game!

Everyone stands in a big circle and then grabs onto two different peoples hands (not the people standing on either side of them).

Once everyone is holding onto two other peoples hands then the aim is to work together to untangle the circle.

Depending on how many people you have this can take a long time or can be completed very quickly.
 
Materials Needed
Relatively large space (if you have a large group)
Hands

Prayer Week 5-8: Prayerball of thanksgiving

This one is a favourite for our kids! And actually we have also used it within our church service! The adults loved bouncing it around to each other! 

It's very simple you can grab an inflatable beach ball, simply throw it to someone in your circle, if you catch it you just have to say one thing that you want to thank God for this week. 

For older kids you can purchase prayer balls online and they have prayer starters on them or simply make your own. When someone catches the ball get them to read out whats closest to their right thumb. 

This is a fun and engaging way to get the kids to pray out loud.
