Rescue the lost sheep! This simple team game is great to play as an introduction to a session on Psalm 23, The Good Shepherd or the parable of the Lost Sheep.
Put your group into two teams, and number them off. Teams line up and sit on each side of a rectangular area. Place a ‘sheep’ in the middle of the area – this could be a soft toy or even just a white balloon.
When their number is called, players must try to be the first to ‘rescue’ the sheep by grabbing it. Keep score.
