Games:

Mother May I?



Honor Your Parents Game- A simple game for preschool through first grade to have them tell why they love their parents.

Need: 1 sponge

Directions: Cut the sponge into a large heart. Have the students sit in a circle. The teacher turns her back to the students and she says, "Pass, pass, pass." The students then pass the heart to their right around the circle. When the teacher says, "Stop," the child holding the heart has to say a reason why they love their parents.





8 pages of cards


Back Talk (4th Commandment)- The object of this game is for the children to honor their parent’s requests in the proper way. Print out the three sets of cards. One set is what a parent would say to their child (these cards are in red). Another set is a disrespectful response from a child to the parent. Another set of cards is what the child should say to their parent. Shuffle the cards and deal them completely out. Have the players put their cards face up in from of them so that others can see and read their cards and help them if necessary. By taking turns, have one player start with what a parent would say and read it out loud. After they have read the card, they place it in the middle of the table face up. The rest of the players then check their cards to see if they have one that says what a disrespectful child would say to their parent in response in this situation. If they have the card, they read it out loud and place it face up next to the first card. Then the players look at their cards to see if they have what a child should say to their parent. If they have the card, they read it out loud and place it face up next to the second card. Players can also play in teams so they can help each other answer the questions.





Honor Your Father and Mother (4th Commandment)- God says to “Honor your father and mother”. Honoring your father and mother means respecting and obeying them because they are very important people. Place your markers on the "START” space. The players roll a die and follow the directions on the space they land on. When a player lands on the picture of the family, they must state a reason why their parents are important. Example: “I honor my parents because they take care of me.” The first player to “FINISH” wins.






Skit:

Have the students make up a skit and act it out. It can be about honoring your mother and father or not. They can also do alternative endings to their skit where the students did honor their parents.
