You can also have each student make their own leper out of a clothespin and give them 3 cups to play the game with each other or at home.


Introduction for all 3 games that are below- Sometimes, we may find ourselves in a situation where we are uncomfortable. There may come a time in our lives when we find ourselves in a situation that is truly hopeless like the leper. When that happens, where can we turn? How do we find hope in a hopeless situation? We can turn to Jesus. When the situation is hopeless, Jesus is our only hope.

Good Manners: How Rude!- A fun and exciting way to review what is considered rude behavior in today’s society. The game includes 6 types of interactive game cards: multiple choice, scenario, true/false, reward for good manners, charades, and consequences for bad manners.

The player to your left will read the card aloud to you and you will try to answer correctly. If you answer your question correctly, you may stay where you are. If you are not correct, everyone says, “How Rude!” and you move back to where you were. The first player or team to get to the “FINISH,” square first is the WINNER!
