SUPPLIES

  • Gallon size Ziploc bags
  • 10 Adult Large white t-shirts
  • Extra-large permanent marker
  • Freezer

GAME PREP

Use the extra-large permanent marker to write letters on the front of each shirt.

Choose a 5-letter word from the Scripture that you will be teaching from for this activity.

Make two sets of Scrabble pieces by writing a letter from the word on each shirt.

Next, soak the shirts in water, but do not ring them out.

Fold each shirt and slide it into a Ziploc bag.

Place the bags in the freezer overnight or for 4-5 hours before the activity.

HOW TO PLAY THE GAME

Divide preteens into two teams.

Give each team a set of frozen t-shirts in Ziploc bags to be their Scrabble pieces.

Read the Scripture verse, and the reference, but leave out the 5-letter word you’ve chosen.

Instruct the groups to look up the passage and find out which word is missing.

Next, the teams will need to find a way to thaw out the t-shirts, put them on team members, and line up spelling the word correctly.

The first team to do so wins the race.

LEADER NOTES

  • Be sure to check the shirts before your activity.

Depending on the amount of water in the shirts before freezing, the shirts may need a half an hour to thaw before asking the kids to try thawing.

The shirts can freeze solid and might be very difficult to thaw.

  • Encourage kids to thaw the shirts fully before trying to unfold or the shirts will stretch and rip.
