Does it Please the Lord?
Like the familiar game "Mother May I?" but with a Biblical twist.
Just for fun
WHAT YOU WILL DO:
The children will all line up along one wall. You will then call the children by name, one by one and offer them a chance to take certain steps to get to the goal. For example, the goal could be the opposite wall. The children must say, "Does it please the Lord?" If they say this, you should answer, "Yes it does.” Then they can take the steps described. If they forget, they skip one turn. If the child takes the wrong step, cheats, or falls down during a jump, they need to go back to the start. The object for the teacher is to have the children progress evenly as much as possible by offering the different kind of steps shown below:
You can offer 1, 2, 3 or more of any of the following steps. You can also combine steps
Baby Moses Step (one foot directly in front of and touching the other)
Goliath Step (leg stretched out as far as possible)
Camel Hop (short hop)
Lion Leap (long hop)
Shepherd Step (normal step)
WHAT YOU WILL SAY:
Explain to the children that this game is like "Mother May I?" but instead of saying, "Mother may I?" they should say, "Does it please the Lord?" Describe the other rules about cheating, falling, or forgetting to say the correct phrase as well.
Teacher: "Andy, you may take 2 camel hops and 1 Baby Moses step."
Andy: "Does it please the Lord?"
Teacher: "Yes it does."
Andy takes the steps, and then you go to the next child.
