Playing the Game:
Place the ten small objects in a tall bag. The children are
blindfolded one by one and are led to the bag where they feel
inside and try and guess what the objects are.
They must whisper what they have found to the leader who keeps the
score. The child who guesses the most correct objects is the
Another way to play it would be to use twenty or more objects in the
bag. The children are divided into two teams and a child from
each team is blindfolded. One blindfolded child tries to
identify an object in the bag. If correct, the team can collect
that object. This continues until a team member makes a wrong
guess, and then a child from the other team has a turn.
The team who collect the most objects are the winners!
Once I was Blind!
One day as Jesus was walking, He saw a man blind from birth (Luke 9:1-25).
Jesus did something very strange. He spat on the ground and made
some mud and put it on the man's eyes! Jesus then told the man
to go and wash in the Pool of Siloam. So the man went and washed,
and came back seeing!
When the Pharisees asked him if he had been blind, he answered, "One
thing I do know. I was blind, but now I see!"
We can See!
Today you found that it's not easy to be blind and try and guess what
things are if you can't see. We can be glad that we have good eyes
and can see clearly. Our memory verse says:
"Give thanks to the Lord for He is good" (Jeremiah 33:11).
Let's thank Jesus for our eyes and that we can see very well!
