Creative And Active Activities for Psalm 91

Creative Activity

Prepare: Have kids sit in a line. Starting with the back of the line, have a volunteer, use only their finger, to draw a simple object on the first kids back. The kid that was “drawn” on will then draw on the person in front of them, what they think was drawn on them. And continue to the front of the line where they will try to guess what they believe to be the object. Have the front go into the back and do it all over again.

Objects: Cloud, flower, star, heart, Christmas tree, diamond, letter of the alphabet

Talk about: Psalm 91:2 say’s ”I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’” Could you trust the person behind you? Why or why not?

Though we can’t see God, nor know what He is doing in our life, we can always trust God. He is our fortress, our rock.

Active Activity

Prepare: Divide the kids into two teams, or have the kids versus the teens. Each team will take a turn building and a turn destroying.

Objects: table, blocks (larger the better), bean bags, timer

Do: We are going to play a game in rounds. The first round, Team A will build the most reliable fortress they can in 2 minutes. When time is up, Team B will have one throw per person to knock down as many blocks as possible. Then we will switch, as Team B will build and Team will knock down. Team with the most blocks at the end of the two rounds will be victorious.

Talk about: Psalm 91:2 say’s ”I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’” Could you trust the building structures you made? Why or Why not?

Though our buildings will fall, our God will stand forever. That is why we can trust in Him!
