Deal or No Deal by orchardblog

We played a fun game in Wahabu Land this weekend based on NBC’s hit game show DEAL or NO DEAL.

We prepared envelopes to be the “suitcases” by labeling the outsides with numbers 1-10. We randomly fill each suitcase with a number (from 5 – 150) which would indicate how many points a child can win to spend in the Prize Shack. There’s no banker, no Howie, and no beautiful models. But it was a hit with plenty of tension, drama, participation and laughter.

Then Todd Mitchell taught about the friendship between Jonathan and David and how Jonathan gave David some of his most valuable possesions — his sword, his robe, etc. (Todd explained to the kids that this would be like Jonathan giving away his ipod, xbox and laptop these days.)

After the Bible Story, we played another round of DOND, but this time, the winner had to be a “Jonathan” and give all the points he/she won away. The kids were very willing to be Jonathan’s and give away all their points.

This week, look for an opportunity to be a “Jonathan.”

Proverbs 17:17 “A friend loves at all times. He is there to help with trouble comes.”
