Reply to ""JESSE TREE" Ideas"

Games Workshop Idea:

We purchased a large (9'x9') checkerboard set w/ 10" checkers. On each checker I put the name of one of Jesus' ancestors (this may have been in the Cornerstone's curriculum ... I'm not sure where I found this idea).

However, we played in two teams. To move a checker you were required to call the checker by name. If it was jumping an opponent you also had to call that checker by name. For example: I want DAVID to jump JEHOSHAPHAT.

My 10-yr-old played one day. After church, I asked him to name Jesus' ancestors ... he named about 20 and had learned them from the checkers.

I accomplished what I wanted ... he recognized the names. Now I'm thinking of using it for ... disciples, fruits of spirit, spiritual gifts, etc.
