Introduce game: Jesus knew his disciples very well. They were his friends. How well do you know your friends?
Who is knocking at my door?
Need: one chair
Directions: The students sit in their own seats while the one who is “It” sits in a chair in front of the room, with his back toward the other students. Someone is chosen by the teacher to go up and knock on the back of the chair or floor. When “It” hears the knocking he asks, "Who is knocking at my door?" The knocker answers in a disguised voice "It is I.” “It” has to guess who the knocker was. The knocker then becomes “It”.
Introduce game: Who are the apostles? What are their names?
applesaucekids.com- Simon Says Meets the Apostles
Simon says meets the Apostles: The idea of this game is just to teach the names of the Apostles. Assign the Name of an Apostle to each kid. Then play Simon says, but only use the Apostle's name when talking to each kid. And tell each kid what Simon says individually. Example: Simon says the Apostle Simon Peter can take one step forward. Only the kid that is Simon Peter can move. The rest of the kids must wait for their turn.
Disciples Memory Game
Preparation: Go to sundayschoolsources.com and print out 2 of the following cards on cardstock (just the pictures of the disciples). Cut out and laminate or cover with clear contact paper to make them last.
21- John, James, Andrew, Peter
38- Thaddaeus, Philip, Bartholomew, James son of Alphaeus
42- Judas Iscariot, Matthew, Thomas, Simon the Zealot
Directions: Cards are laid out in a grid face down, and players take turns flipping pairs of cards over. On each turn, the player will first turn one card over, then a second. If the two cards match, the player scores one point, the two cards are removed from the game, and the player gets another turn. If they do not match, the cards are turned back over.
The object is to match more pairs of cards than the opposing player. (One point is scored for each matched pair, and the player with the highest score after all cards have been matched wins.) When cards are turned over, it is important to remember where they are for when the matching card is turned up later in the game.
Disciples Go Fish Game
Preparation: Print out Disciple Trading Cards (listed above) on card stock. Cut out and laminate or cover with clear contact paper to make them last.
Directions: Go Fish is best for 2-5 players with so few cards to play with. The dealer deals 4 cards to each player. The remaining cards (if any) are placed face down to form a stock. The player to dealer's left starts. A turn consists of asking a specific player for a specific card. For example, if it is my turn I might say: “Mary, do you have James?” The player who asks must already hold one of the requested cards. If the player who was asked (Mary) has the card (James in this case), she must give her card to the player who asked for it. That player then gets another turn and may again ask any player for any card already held by the asker. If the person asked does not have the card, they say “Go fish!” The asker must then draw the top card of the undealt stock. If the drawn card is the card asked for, the asker shows it and gets another turn. If the drawn card is not the card asked for, the asker keeps it, but the turn now passes to the next player. As soon as a player collects a pair of the same disciple, this must be shown and discarded face up. The game continues until either someone has no cards left in their hand or the stock runs out. The winner is the player who then has the most pairs.
