Jesus Invites all to "Come, Follow Me"
Children naturally like to imitate the world around them. This week help them connect following simple actions (like playing follow the leader) to help them understand how they can do as Christ did and follow his example.

➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N
Invite everyone to play the “Mirror Game.” One person is the leader. The rest of the participants try to mimic every move that the leader makes. For example: if the leader raises one arm, the participants must also raise the same arm, etc. Before you start playing, place the blindfold on one of the participants. (This should make it very difficult for that person to mirror what the leader is doing!)
Play for a minute or two, then discuss the following questions:
1) Who was everyone following? (The leader.)
2) If someone else was watching all of you, would they know who you were following? (Yes.)
