SIGNATURE HUNT


BLINDFOLD MAZE
Aim:   The Holy Spirit guides us though life. We like to think that we are in control and that our physical senses are correct. However God knows more than we do, just as a person with sight can pick things better than people without sight.
Needs:   String, blindfolds, items of your choice. (eg baked beans, rocks, spaghetti, jelly, corn flakes, etc)
Setting up:  Create a maze by using string which has a number of branches that lead to items
How to play: People are blindfolded and set off at thirty second intervals to crawl through the maze. (Each person to have a minder) As they go through the maze they are to feel each item and guess what it is.
 
 

SIGNATURE HUNT
Aim:       To show the diversity within the body of Christ and lead into the material on spiritual gifts.
Needs:   Pen and photocopies of the signature hunt list
Setting    Up:  None.
How to play: Hand out the sheet and the people must get a signature beside each question.
