Play "Prepare the Way" Match Game

Tell the children how John the Baptist prepared the way for Jesus by telling others to be ready

because he was coming soon. They are going to play a match game and clear the way for Jesus by getting rid of all the bees and locust in the way. In order to clear the way, they have to turn over two cards that match. When they make a match they will pick up the cards and keep them to get them out of the way.

Before class make some honey bee and locust cards.

Member's Locust Card Pattern

Make half the cards with locusts on them and half with honey bees. You can make this game as easy or as hard as you would like. For the youngest children just use two types of cards, honey bees and locust. There will be a lot of the same cards but they will have a fifty-fifty chance of getting a match. For older children you can make the game more challenging by having them answer a question after they get a match in order to keep the cards.
