Games and activities
Create a dimly lit environment. Either in dark room or wait for the evening. Make sure the space is safe and there is nothing dangerous for the children to hurt themselves on. Select one person to be ‘it’. Give them a torch (Flashlight). ‘It’ closes their eyes and counts to a number while the other players hide. When they are finished counting, they must search for the other players and tag them by shining the torch on them.
Recognize the voice
To prepare for this activity, use your phone to record some people your child knows well saying a simple sentence. For example. “Hello. Do you know who I am?” Alternatively, you could find some videos of people from your child’s favorite cartoons.
One by one, play a voice to your child. They must then guess who’s voice it is. If they find it too difficult, you can give a clue and play the voice again. Share how Saul heard a voice from Heaven and asked who it was. Remind them it was Jesus.
Blindfolded walk with a Guide
Place a blindfold on your child. Have them hold onto your arm. Explain that you will be their guide. Take them on a short walk around the room, house or garden. Ask them where they think they are?
Speak about how Saul was left blind after seeing the bright light and needed others to help him.
