Whether its pointing at someone and laughing at them, picking up litter, writing a thank you letter or drawing graffiti, most good or bad things we do involve our hands.
The review game Helping Hands or Hurting Hands explores these every-day choices kids have to make.
It’s free to download. Just print it, cut it and laminate it.
There are some scenarios suggested, but there is plenty of scope for you to develop it in a way that your kids can identify with.
We first made it to add a bit of zip to a review of the lesson of Moses – murdering an Egyptian then helping the shepherdesses. It would be equally useful to review Zachaeus – taking money, then giving it away.
You may think of other Bible lessons where this review game will emphasis a theme in your teaching.
It is easy to set up and play. The “hand” cards are mounted on a board using Blu-Tac or some other removeable method (eg. magnetic strip). Then you:
- Ask a question on the lesson. If a child answers correctly, they choose a hand card to see if they get a bonus.
- If the scenario on the back of their chosen item demonstrates helping hands, they score the bonus.
- Anyone choosing the hand which has the Helping Hands gold star logo scores a double bonus!
