Families

Lead your kids in the following silly exercises to test their endurance. Have kids perform each activity for at least 15 seconds. Follow each activity immediately with the next one from the list. If your kids seem like they can keep going after you’ve used up the activities, repeat those you liked best (or make up your own).

  • Have kids hop on one foot while turning clockwise.

  • Have kids flap their arms like a chicken while squatting up and down.

  • Without using chairs, have kids “sit” as if they were in invisible chairs by bending their knees and pressing their backs against the wall for 60 seconds.

  • Have kids balance hymns book on their heads and walk as quickly as they can around the room while clapping their hands. If someone’s hymn book falls, he or she must start over.

  • Have kids run around a chair backwards, clapping their hands and barking like a dog.

  • Have kids sing “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” three times while balancing on one leg.

After the activities, have kids collapse in a circle for a brief discussion. Ask:

  • What was it like to keep up with all these activities?

  • What role did endurance or perseverance play in this game?

  • How could you build better endurance for a game like this?

Read aloud Jude 17-21. Ask:

  • How is the game we played like the ups and downs we face in everyday life?

  • What are ways we can build our spiritual endurance?
