Get comfy and everyone takes it in turn to hold their thumbs out and wiggle them up or down to express how they are and how their week has been. Allow everyone to share why. Perhaps share what God has been doing in your life this week. Why not take a moment to pray about what comes up?
Buzzy Bees - have everyone walk around the room buzzing like bees (try not to laugh 😂). Call out a letter from the alphabet and each person must think of an object beginning with that letter, as quickly as they can and make a frozen statue depicting that object. Start with 10 lives. If a person is too slow, they lose a life, if they have the same object as somebody else both players lose a life. Whoever has the most lives at the end of the game wins [point: show and tell]
Grab a tasty snack and drink and join Ben on today's video as we look at our story; Matt 28
Family Discussion questions:
Let's do a 'show and tell' together only this time share something that Jesus has done for you, spoken to you or shown you.
Why do you think the disciples were scared to talk about Jesus? Why do we get scared?
How can you help 'show' and 'tell' of God's love to those around you this week?
Find a space with your cushion somewhere, bring your journal or paper and pen with you.
Play this worship music video and spend some time with God asking God to help you be courageous in speaking of His love to others and of showing His power. Ask him to show you people that He wants to reveal himself to around you and how you can help.
Pick a day this week to come together as a family and do another ‘show’ and ‘tell’. You can do it over the dinner table maybe. Ask God to speak to you during the week and write it down, then share it with everyone in your family. A fun way to do this is to go for a walk and ask Jesus to speak to you about His love using something that you see (a leaf, twig, etc.) If you can bring the thing back as an object or if it’s too big, remember it in your mind or take a picture. Then share what Jesus showed you through the object ‘show and tell’.
