Worship Song: Shine a Light

Practice learning the words to “Shine a Light”, have your parents play this song every day this week!

Games and Activities:

  • Mother May I?, Remember the old game, Mother May I. The leader stands at one end of the rooma nd the others stand at the other end. The leader stands with their back toward the others and then chooses a child (at random, or in order), and announces a direction. These follow a pattern, such as, “Brian, you may take’ x’ giant/regular/baby steps forward/backward.” The child responds with “Mother may I?” Mom then states “Yes” or “No”, depending on her whim, and the child complies. If the child forgets to ask “Mother may I?” he/she goes back to the starting line. First one to touch Mother wins.#EACRootedKids.
