Sunday school activity about Jacob for ages 7-12: What happened next?

Activity Preparation:

  • Print a bulletin, with the code key at the top of the page covered or removed, for each child
  • A pencil for each child
  • You will need the code numbers and words from the puzzle's code key written on 15 small pieces of paper, wadded up to look like rocks
  • Gather extra small pieces of paper to make additional rocks
  • Get a basket or box to store the paper rocks
  • Have a small prize for the winner

Activity Instructions:

  1. Prepare the rocks for the lesson. Add enough rocks without clues so that the total number of rocks equals the number of children in class. Put the rocks in a basket or box.
  2. Give each child a bulletin and a pencil.
  3. Explain the activity, "We're going to solve this puzzle by choosing rocks, one at a time, from the basket. Your rock may have a number and word on it, or it could be blank. After choosing a rock, open it and read aloud the number and word, or let the class know that your rock is blank. Anyone can try to guess the answer to the puzzle before all the rocks are chosen. The first person to correctly solve the puzzle, wins."
  4. Allow the children to choose rocks and read the clues until there is a winner.
  5. Give the winner a small prize.
  6. Read aloud Genesis 32:22-31 to reinforce the lesson.
