This circle time game was invented to go with our Matthew 6 lessons. It is a great ice-breaker and gets kids thinking about God's relationship with His creation
Around the Table
Directions: Sit in a circle and have each child choose a different animal to be (cat, dog, fish etc.) Quickly go around the circle and be certain that each child has shared what animal they have chosen and that they know what kind of food that animal eats. Choose a child to start. This child will begin by saying “I am a __________ and I eat ________. What does a _________ eat?” In the last part of the chant, the child must choose the animal of another child in the circle. For example the child might say “I am a cat and I eat mice. What does a dog eat?” The child who has chosen “dog” must now take up the chant: “I am a dog and I eat meat. What does a fish eat?” etc. Continue with the chant, getting faster as you go until someone messes up. You might play several times. Remind the children of how many wonderful creature God created and how He loves to care for them.
