3.Don’t Eat PeteSAY: Let’s play a game called “Don’t Eat Pete” to help us learn more about how God can do anything! 2. Wash’ hands. GIVE each person a Game Sheet and a pack of mini cookies. Place one mini cookie on each picture on their Game Sheet. 3. All the elves are named Pete. SPREAD the Pete Cards, blank side-up, in the middle of the group and EXPLAIN how the game works: You will each have a turn to toss the beanbag onto a Pete Card in the middle of the group. After it lands on a Card, you will turn around so you are looking away from the group. While you’re not looking, I’ll turn the Card over and show everyone which “Pete” it landed on. Then you will turn back around and start eating your cookies from your Game Sheet. When you pick up the cookie from the “Pete” on your Card, everyone will stop you and say, “DON’T EAT PETE!” Let’s see how many cookies you eat before you try to eat Pete. 4. ALLOW kids to take turns choosing a Pete Card and eating their cookies until they are stopped by the group. After each child plays, READ and DISCUSS the back of the Pete Card the beanbag landed on.
5. PLAY until everyone has had a turn and ALLOW kids to eat the remaining cookies. Then SAY: This
game helped us think about how God can do anything! Let’s say that together again: God Can Do Anything
