Strengthening bonds between children by working together.

Understanding the Body of Christ:
Helping children grasp how every believer plays a crucial role within the community.

Appreciating One Another:
Teaching children that, as believers, they need each other's gifts and talents.


Divide the children into teams:
Give each team a raw egg, a plastic bag, some string, a piece of A4 paper, an elastic band, scissors, an empty toilet paper roll, and glue.

Build a parachute:
Instruct the teams to use the provided materials to create a parachute to attach to the egg. Encourage creativity and cooperation.

The Egg Drop challenge:
Have the teams drop the egg with the attached parachute from the first floor of a building. The goal is to keep the egg whole during the fall.

Declare the winner:
The team whose egg remains unbroken is the winner!

Reflect on the lesson:
Discuss with the children how working together and valuing each other's gifts made the game successful. Relate this to the principles of the Body of Christ and how believers support one another.
