    Teaching kids about spiritual growth is as important if not more than teaching kids to feed themselves. After teaching the Ruth in the bible Sunday school lesson, you can use this Sunday school game to let the kids have fun while they are learning about spiritual growth.

    Before reading on - sign up on the right to get FREE Sunday school material!
    To teach the class about spiritual growth, play this Sunday school game.

    You'll only need a few things for this game. You can also play it with any number of children. Here's what you'll need:

    • cut out paper food items (carrots, apples, strawberries, pumpkins, corn, etc.)
    • printed out verses and words (list shown below)
    • tape
    After you have cut out the food items, tape the words or verses (listed below) on the back and hide them around the room or area. Don't make them too hard to find - just hard enough for your age children.

    For this example, let's say you have 12 kids in your class.

    You'll need at least 2 paper food items for each child plus 12 more - a total of 36 food items (more for more kids).

    Write the following on the back of the first 24 food items. You can add some of your own ideas too. You can also copy and paste so that you can print them out. Then, just cut and tape them on the back of the food items.

    • Bible verses
    • Prayer
    • helping others
    • sharing
    • going to Sunday school
    • bible school
    • youth meeting
    • attend church
    • read your bible
    • tell others about Jesus, God, and Heaven
    • invite people to church and youth meeting
    • talking to God
    • or any other things that will help the kids spiritual growth
    Here are some bible verse suggestions you can add to the backs of some too:

    James 1:22 KJV
    But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only.
    Proverbs 10:5 KJV
    He that gathereth in summer is a wise son:
    but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.
    Philippians 4:13 KJV
    I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
    You'll also need 12 things that will NOT help with spiritual growth. Below are just examples. Feel free to add your own.
    • using bad language
    • using the Lord’s name in vain
    • telling lies
    • disobeying
    • being jealous of what others have
    • stealing
    • talking back to parents and teachers
    • bullying
    • hurting people’s feelings on purpose
    • cheating
    • throwing trash down on church property


    How to play this Sunday school game:

    After you have cut out the foods, taped on the words and verses above, and hidden them, it is time to explain the rules.
    Each child will walk around the room looking at each piece of food. As they read the back of the food, they can decide if it will help their spiritual growth or hurt it. Let each child pick up two foods, but be sure they don't pick up the bad foods.
    Once the kids have gathered two good food items, let them come back to sit in a circle. Let the kids take turns telling what they found and how it can help their spiritual growth. This is important as it will let you step in and explain why it will help when needed.

    After everyone has gone, talk about the bad foods they found and why it will hurt their spiritual growth.

    Use your own ideas and verses that you've been working on to help encourage the kids in your Sunday school class.
