Have you been to a baseball game lately? No? Then start your own game – Biblical Baseball style!
Set up: You will need 4 bases: a home plate, a first base, a second base and a third base. You will also need one card from each of the following titles: home run, single, double, and triple. Lay the bases on the ground in the shape of a baseball diamond and place the cards in a bucket.
How to play: Choose one child from each team. Decide who goes first. Give the child a Bible review question. If you do it correctly, you now have the opportunity to choose a card from the cube. If they pick the single card they move to first base, the double card moves them to second base, the triple card moves them to third base, and the home run card gives them an automatic home run. Put the chosen card back in the cube. At this point in the game, both teams have had their first players “at bat.”
The second child from the 1st team goes next and follows the same procedure. Whichever card you choose, it will also advance any of your team members already on another base. For example, if a kid from Team A is on 2nd base and another kid from Team A comes “at bat” and chooses a double card, the first kid from Team A now goes to home plate and scores a run for his team. while his teammate goes to second base.
The team with the most home runs at the end of their Bible review time wins.
