Throw Away Your Sins Game- This is for younger students to understand that their sins are forgiven.

Need: 1 trashcan, a piece of paper for each child, and 1 chair.

Directions: Give each child a piece of paper. Have the children think of a recent time that they sinned, such as telling a lie about their homework, arguing with their parents, or a time they were disobedient, etc. Next, have them think of how many times they sinned during the past week. Remind them of all the things that may be considered a sin, and have them write the number down on the piece of paper. Tell the children, “Let’s pretend that you made your confession to the priest and you did your penance. Now your sins are forgiven. Let’s throw away your sins.”

Put a trashcan against a wall. Have the children line up behind a chair (to keep them from getting too close to the basket). One by one, have them throw their sins into a trashcan that is a few feet away.


Introduce game- How are we to treat others? Well, here are some question and let’s see how well you can.

Materials- “Win or Lose by How You Choose” by Judge Judy Sheindlin

Directions- Divide the class into teams and do questions out of “Win or Lose by How You Choose!” Which ever teams gets the most points, wins.

Telephone (page 122)- Have the children sit in a circle. Tell them they are going to play a game about spreading news. Whisper a phrase such as “Jesus is born” or “The Messiah is here” into the first person’s ear. They have to whisper your phrase to the next person sitting beside them. Repeat until the phrase gets all around the circle. The last person will say the phrase out loud. The phrase will usually be mixed up and wrong by the time it gets to the end. Repeat several times.

Debriefing (page 123)- Allow response time as you ask: Did our phrase ever come out right? Why did it get mixed up? (Because we whispered; we spoke quietly; we tried to keep others from hearing; etc.) How does God want us to speak when we tell others about Jesus? (boldly and clearly) How softly do you think the shepherds spoke when they talked about Jesus?
