Number of Players: 2 or more
Age of Players: 5 and above
Say: I hope your aim is good today everyone, because the aim of this next game is to hit the target!
Prep: You will need some q-tips and a target for each team or player, depending on the style in which you are playing. Each target should be made up of three circles (see title photo)
How to Play:
Players stand behind a delegated area or line and must aim their q-tips at the middle of the target. They keep throwing q-tips until the time is up. The points from each q-tip is counted. If any part of a q-tip is touching a higher point area then it is counted as having the higher points rather than the lower. The winner is the player/s with the most points.
This game can also be used as a relay team game with players taking turns to throw a q-tip until the time is up.
MISSING THE MARK: Just as you were aiming at the target in the ‘Q-Tips Targets’ game and missed the mark a few times, we all miss the mark of perfection. All of us have, except Jesus that is! (Romans 3:23)
PERFECTION: What would perfection have looked like in the ‘Q-Tip Targets’ game? That’s right, hitting the target every single time, and hitting it in the centre. None of us were able to get it perfect in this game, and we don’t get it perfect in life either. Jesus is the only perfect person that has ever lived! (1 Peter 2:22, 2 Corinthians 5:21)
SIN: We all missed the mark at some point in the ‘Q-Tip Targets’ game. But that was just a game! In life we can all miss the mark too – by doing, saying or thinking the wrong thing. The bible calls that sin. (Galatians 5:19-21, Colossians 3:5-6, James 4:17)
THE GOSPEL: Just like we missed the target in the ‘Q-Tip Targets’ game, we all miss the target of perfection in life. None of us are perfect. Yet God is. God can only be in relationship with perfect things. That’s why each one of us needs Jesus! Jesus lived a perfect life and died a perfect death. He brings us forgiveness for the wrong things we have done so that we can know God! (Romans 3:23, Romans 5:8, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Galatians 3:13-14)
