This is a version of “tag,” but to make it less “wild” you could limit the play to 3 kids at a time and allow them to take turns or you could make a no running rule for your classrooms, since they are small, or have them play the game on their knees instead of their feet.
Materials: Copies of the memory verse: “God is faithful, and He will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation He will also provide a way of escape so you are able to bear it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13
Directions: Name one child to be “temptation.” That child should try to touch the other kids. If he does, they are “touched by temptation” and they must freeze where they are. They must read or say the memory verse to “resist temptation” and be freed.
