Harmony hop

Physical activity

Host a three-legged race, and encourage cooperation to reach the goal.

Discussion point: When we ask in prayer, God will help us cooperate with others.

You will need at least two children to complete this activity. You may choose to incorporate it into a playdate with another family.

Take two children to a large room or outdoors if possible. Put a treat or an appealing toy an appropriate distance away from them. Tie their legs together three-legged-race style and tell them they need to work together to reach the treat. If they succeed without discord, they get to enjoy the treat after you have prayed and thanked God for the blessing of friends and harmony.

If they experience conflict, tell them they can try again after they have prayed. Pray, requesting that God would send His Holy Spirit to enable them to work together cooperatively. Try the three-legged approach to the toy or treat again. Celebrate by saying Psalm 133:1 or the memory verse they are learning.
