Spider Web

I'm caught in this spider web!


To demonstrate that each child is an essential part of their Sunday School group. This game is good fun in the hall or at a camp.  It involves everybody in creating a beautiful web.

Materials Needed:

A large ball of string.

Age Group:

Grades 3 - 6 (9 to 12 years).


The Game:

The whole group of kids stand in a large circle.  A ball of string is given to one person who must hold onto the end as he throws the ball to another person in the circle.  This continues and each time a person catches the ball, they must hold onto the loop of string, and then throw the ball to another person.  This continues until everyone holds a loop of string or until the ball of string runs out.

The string now connects each person and holds each one together.  The effect of sharing creates a beautiful web between the members of the group.  For this to happen, everyone had to participate!  Now let three or four people drop their loops and go and sit down.  The web becomes loose and the kids have to move out and widen the circle in order to tighten the web again.  Repeat this several times until the circle becomes very large.

The result is that the kids move further away from each other each time somone drops their string.  This shows that the group needs to stay in close contact with each other and that each person is essential for the Sunday School to survive and grow.

God bless!
