Follow the Leader- Have a student be Jesus and let the students play follow the leader.
Feet Followers- Trace feet and cut out. Let children place their own feet cutouts in a designated area. After all the feet have been put down, children can try to FOLLOW THE FEET and will enjoy the weaving back and forth to find another foot to follow. Have children sit down at the end of the feet, and tell the story today about following JESUS.
Follow Me- The leader does one move (example: claps their hand, snaps their fingers, etc.) and the group then does it. Then the leader does the first move and then a new one. The group then repeats what the leader did in the proper order. Each time the leader adds a new move to the sequence and the group must repeat what the leader did in the correct order.

Introduce game: If you follow Jesus, you must believe in Him and do what He asks.

Jesus wants us to do the right thing. Making the right decisions in life is hard to do, but if you let Jesus be your guide and think, “What Would Jesus Do?” it will make it a lot easier.
