Play "Let There be Light"

Have your children sit on the floor facing the front of the room. Pick one child to be "it". "It" goes to the very front of the room, facing the wall with his eyes closed. Point to one child who is sitting on the floor to get up and move to a new position. Then every one says, "Let there be light". The child at the front of the room opens his eyes and turns around and tries to guess which child has moved from his place. If he guesses correctly, he switches places with that child. If this is too hard for your children, pick a child to sneak up and tap the child in the front of the room on the back and then sneak back to his place. Then say, "Let there be light", and have the child guess who tapped him.

Draw a Creature Game

(Second Grade and Older) - Give each child a sheet of paper and a pencil. Tell them that they are going to draw a creature like none they have ever seen. Tell them to draw on feature on their paper such as a head, eye, arm, etc. When every one is finished drawing the one feature, they should pass their papers to the person on their right. Everyone them draws one feature of the creature on that paper and then passes it to the right.
