WHAT YOU WILL DO:

Before class obtain pictures that relate to your lesson. You can print pictures at home, using software designed to make greeting cards. You can also find pictures in magazines or hand draw the pictures.

Hide these pictures around the room before the children arrive. It's a good idea to count the pictures first, to make sure that all of them are found. This game is a good icebreaker for children who don't know each other.

WHAT YOU WILL SAY:

Today our lesson is on the topic of _____________. Today we will be going on a treasure hunt. I have hidden
_______ number of pictures throughout the room, it's your job to find them all. These pictures all relate to our lesson. On the count of three, find the pictures!

Once the children find all the pictures, you can explain how each picture relates to the lesson. You should also mention that the greatest treasure hunt of all is putting God's word into our hearts. This would be the prefect way to transition to scripture reading or memory work.
