The least of these…

Matthew 25:35-40

Game: Dress/Feed Relay

Items needed:

  • 2 sets oversized clothes (we used a pullover top & gym shorts)
  • 2 aprons
  • Pudding snack packs
  • Plastic spoons
  • Small table or bench
  • Plastic drop cloths

Set up:

  • Place clothes on one end of room
  • Place a long table on the opposite end of room laid out with aprons, puddings & plastic spoons
  • Protect area around & under table with drop cloths for potential messiness from pudding

Instructions:

  1. Divide kids into 2 equal teams (preferably boys against girls)
  2. Kids on each team form pairs
  3. Have kids decide before starting who wants to be dressed & who wants to be fed
  4. At the sound of “go,” one child has to help the other child place the oversized clothes over their existing clothes….then the pair runs to the other end & the child who was just helped getting clothed now has the responsibility of feeding the other child a pudding snack
  5. When the pudding has been emptied, the pair then run back to the other end & remove the oversized clothes for the next pair waiting in line
  6. First team to “dress” & “feed” all the kids on their team wins!

Tips & Tricks:

  • Keep the clothes selection simple! Avoid buttons, zippers, ties, etc
  • Make sure the clothes are large enough to easily slide over the clothes of your largest child
  • Pair boys with boys & girls with girls
  • Have a few different flavor options
  • Ck for food allergies
  • We had a jello option as well, but the pudding was the better choice when feeding…it was easier & less messy
  • Have adult helpers at the table to assist with getting the aprons on the children being fed & to help w/ opening snack packs
  • Tell the kids they may not start feeding their partner til the adult gets the apron secured (we don’t want ruined clothing!!)
  • We had a couple of pairs of teachers race & do it as well! The kids loved that & they were hilarious! If you have willing helpers…let them play too!
  • Laugh, take lots of pictures, & have fun
