Fun Event & Activity Ideas
Need a cool reason to get together and share a meal? Here it is!
Have everyone – including teachers/sponsors - come dressed as a Bible character, but not tell anyone who they represent. Decorate your room to resemble a banquet in Jesus' Day, with candles for lighting. Have volunteers fix a meal consisting of only foods from back in Jesus' Day (breads, deer, fruits, vegetables, spices, etc). Remember! No silverware!
After enjoying the meal each person has to describe him or her self while others try to guess who they were. Award prizes for best costume (most creative representation of a Bible character) and most thorough knowledge of that character and of Bible days. This is a great opportunity to educate your students on Jesus' lifestyle and minister to them through the characters they chose to come as.
