HOW TO PLAY: Explain there are 4 aspects of Jesus’ death that we are going to look at today. Attach each paper to a corner of the room or place on chair where it can be seen. Parent will stand in the middle of the room with eyes closed and say, “GO”, everyone should choose one of the corners and run to that corner. Person in middle will call out the name of one of the corners and open eyes. Everyone in that corner is out and then you play another round and so on. Depending on how many people you have in your family just keep everyone in and play a few rounds together. Older kids can take turns being in the middle if they’d like.
Fill up a basin or bowl with water and take turns washing each other’s feet.
You can also set up a basin with water safe toys in and have children was the feet of their toys.
