“This battle is the Lord’s!”

1 Samuel 17

David & Goliath Game

Items Needed:

  • Darth Vader piñata
  • Black Velcro tape
  • 5 small plastic balls (we used plastic golf balls)

Preparation:

  • Adhere approx 5 strips of Velcro tape to the helmet of the piñata so that “Goliath’s” forehead is completely covered with Velcro
  • Adhere Velcro tape to the plastic balls so that they will stick to the Velcro area of the piñata

Instructions:

  • Divide kids into 2 teams
  • Each child gets 5 attempts to hit “Goliath” in the forehead with a ball
  • Each team receives 1 point for each ball that sticks to “Goliath’s” forehead
  • Team with highest score wins

Tips & Tricks:

  • Make sure Goliath’s helmet has a wide area covered with Velcro! (It’s harder than it looks!)
  • Place Goliath on a top bookshelf or high cabinet where he is higher than the kids & stationary
  • If you want the game to move a little faster, tell kids their turn is over when they have 1 ball stick, or after their 5th failed attempt
