Discussion point: People’s feelings can be fragile, like an egg; treat others kindly and considerately, showing respect for their feelings.
This activity needs to be done in an outdoor area or on a washable surface, as it can get messy.
Begin by passing a raw egg back and forth between two people or around in a circle. Keep backing up and increasing the distance of the toss. The egg may or may not break.
Use this game as an opportunity to talk about how we must treat others with respect. Explain that people are fragile like the egg. Humans don’t have shells, but people can have very sensitive feelings. Treating others with consideration demonstrates respect for their feelings.
The game can also be used as a reminder to care for the family home and possessions and for the things that others own.
“The Lord saw how great man’s wickedness on earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. The Lord was grieved that He had made man on earth and His heart was filled with pain.”
