Playing the Game:

A Bible Question is asked to the group, and the child who answers correctly is blindfolded and given a chance to pin their tail on the camel.

Alternately, to play as a game, each child is blindfolded in turn and given a chance to pin their tail.

The child pinning the tail nearest to the dot on the camel is awarded the prize.  Give an animal cracker or sweet to each child who had a turn to pin a tail.

God bless!
