Have you ever been stuck for an activity for a smaller group? Here you will find a bunch of activities and ideas that you are free to take and adapt for your own needs. Have a great idea for a small group activity or lesson? Let us know and we can post it for you. Don't see what you need? Post in the forum and we will try to help.
This is an activity to use when you talk about God's protection, staying safe.
One at a time show one of the photos. Ask the group how the person or item in the photo can keep them safe. You can choose who answers or answer as a group.
Example: Show the photo of a seatbelt. Ask everyone how that can be used to keep someone safe. Answer: it holds us in place in case we get into an accident. If we don’t have our seatbelt on and get into an accident we could get hurt.
Alternate: Pass out a photo to each child. Give them a minute to think and explain that when it is their turn they will share with the group what their photo is and how that can be used to keep us safe.
