Welcome to Kids Church
Today we look at Peter!
Choose one of these to play as a family
Balloon Keepy Uppy Game – Have a balloon and you must all try and keep it up off the ground. Make it harder and have the room divided and two teams must keep it up and then over onto other teams’ side. You don’t want it to hit the ground on your side. Have more than one balloon if this is too easy!
Target Ball Game – use a ball (or rolled up socks) and have a target you have to hit (Maybe draw with chalk a circle on a wall outside or have an object to hit. ) Have each person keep his or her eyes on the circle and throw the ball at it. Then have them focus on something else in the room and throw the ball again trying to hit the circle.
Catch! – stand in a circle and one of the players is given a ball (or socks). The players must then throw the ball across the circle in the hope of surprising someone and making them miss a catch. It’s important to keep your eyes on the ball!
- What did you learn from Peter about trusting God?
- Use your wave piece of paper and what you wrote there and pray together bringing your worries to God.
- Sing together a worship song like Oceans to remind you about how we can look to Jesus (you might like to do the one linked below and learn the actions).

- Be creative!! Make a little boat to remind you of this story and the importance of keeping our eyes on Jesus.
What message would you write on the sail?
What will you make your boat out of?
Here are a few of mine. I used a shell, a lid, a yogurt container and lego for the boat; cardboard for the sail and either a straw, paddlepop stick or wooden skewer for the mast. A bit of blu- tac or sticky tape is helpful too.
- Make a mini book of this Story
- other possible crafts
