Adam's Party

Application:

A game of "Simon Says" where Adam wants to find out where he has mixed up the names of animals.

Materials Needed:

None.

Memory Verse:

"God made the animals and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them" (from Genesis 2:19.

Age Group:

Preschool to Grade 2.

 

 
I name you, Lion!

Preparation:

Make up a list of animals and their noises for "Adam Says".  For example, "Bark", "Meow", "Roar", "Baa", "Moo" etc.

The Game:

To start the game, tell the children that today poor Adam is having a party, and wants to invite some of the animals.  But, he has mixed up the names of the animals, and now he needs the children to help him find out who is who in the Ark!  The children must help Adam by making the correct noise for each animal.

Explain that you will call out for example, "Adam says,'Bark!'" and then they must bark like a dog.  But, if you say, "Adam says, 'Meow!'", or "Adam says, 'Roar!'", or "Adam says, 'Baa!'", or "Adam says, 'Moo!'" etc., then they must make the correct noise of each animal.

But, if you just say, "Bark!" then anybody who barks will sit out of the rest of the game.  The same applies if you just say, "Meow"; or "Roar", or "Baa"; or "Moo" etc.  The last remaining player in the game wins!

Variations:

Another way to play this game is to call out the name of an animal rather than the noise it makes.  For example, "Adam says, 'Cat!'" and the children must then respond by making the correct noise of that animal.  If you just said, "Cat!" then anyone who meows will sit out for the rest of the game!

Alternately, you could call out the name of an animal, for example "Adam says, 'Lion!'" and then they need to act out what they think that animal does.  If you just said, "Lion!" then anyone who moves will sit out for the rest of the game!

Obeying God:

You had to obey what "Adam says" in this game.  In the same way we need to obey God and do what we know will please Him.  When we obey God, we will be happy and He will be pleased with us.  He will also look after us and protect us from harm and danger.

And so, when you say your prayers at night, make sure you ask God to help you to obey Him in all you do and say!

God bless.
