When you say, "Start" the children begin to fly around and look for
the twig. The child that finds the hidden twig wins the game.
You could repeat the game several times while their interest is high.
To do this, have all the children cover their eyes while you
hide the twig somewhere else in the room.
We are going to play a game, because Mr Noah and his family are
tired of being shut up in the Ark. It was noisy and crowded,
and all the animals made it smell dreadful! They have to get
out into the fresh air! But, if there's still lots of water
from the flood, they will all drown! And you don't want them
to drown do you?
And so you are all going to be little doves and help Mr Noah.
I want you to stretch out your arms like this, and pretend to
fly like the dove Mr Noah sent out to find if it was safe to come
out of the Ark.
When I say, "Start!" you must fly around the room by flapping your arms,
and see if there is an olive tree twig hidden somewhere! If you
find it, Mr Noah and his family can come out of the Ark safely, and
you will win a prize!
