    Teaching Sunday school kids about avoiding sins can be fun! You only need a few items. Sin comes at us from every side each and every day. So, what better way to teach kids about sin than with a fun activity? It can also be adapted into a game, as well.

    Sunday School Activity

    This is a simple, yet fun activity that can be adapted for all age children.

    What you'll need:

    • construction paper (different colors so the kids will know which one is theirs)
    • pens or pencils for older children
    For this activity, you'll need to explain to the kids about sin. You can use the 'Avoiding Sins' Sunday school lesson or just jump right into it using the guide below.

    What to do:

    Ask the kids if they know what sins are.

    Wait for answers.

    Then, ask if the kids can name some sins they may encounter from day to day.

    Wait for answers.

    Older kids can write down some of those sins on the pieces of construction paper. Younger kids can just talk about the different sins out loud.

    The point of this Sunday school activity:

    Have the kids wad their paper up into balls. Pretend these balls are sin balls that we may encounter each and every day.

    Have the kids sit on a line holding their paper balls.

    Choose one kid to begin the activity.

    The first child will try to run from one side of the room to the other in front of the other kids. As he runs, the children will throw their paper balls at the child.

    Explain to the kids that one side of the room represents the morning. The other side of the room represents the evening. The child running is trying to make it from morning until night without encounter sins during the day.

    Sometimes, we don't mean to sin, but we do. Just like the child running doesn't mean to get hit with the balls.

    Sin is all around us. We can't get through each day on our own. We make mistakes.

    Because Jesus died on the cross, our sins are forgiven.

    Let each child have a turn to run. The kids love this activity and it is a great time to talk about every day sins and how we must lean on God to get us through.

    Remember to stress the fact that we all mess up. When we do mess up, we need to ask God to forgive us, then try really hard not to do that sin again.

    Activity Turned Into Game

    Make this activity into a fun Sunday school game by counting how many times each child gets hit with the paper ball.

    The child with the least about of hits - wins!

    Extra Idea!

    If you need some activities to send home with your kids or even need an extra page for them to do during class, here are some activity sheets. You get a dozen books and near as I can tell, it doesn't say you can't copy them once you buy them. For example, if your lesson is on Jonah and the Whale, copy enough of that page for all your kiddos!

    There are many different activities and bible stories in these activity books. Of course, you could put your kid's names on a book of their own and let them use them week after week until they are finished.
