Game (Source: “way” and the life…what does this mean? Jesus tells us that He points the way to life. There are other things that might “point” us in the right direction, too, and this lesson will explore some of those concepts.  To get started, select from one of the following openers, or make up one of your own! 

  • Make a road map! This could be a simple map of your town, showing given locations, or it could be a treasure hunt of sorts. You might even make an old-fashioned pirate map!
  • Look at a real compass and identify how it points North. Discuss how Jesus shows us the way to life.
  • Make a “treasure hunt” in the house or backyard. Provide instructions for kids to follow to find a special treat.
  • Hide something in a room of the house and play “hotter/colder” to find it.
  • Which key? Make your own mini “escape room” using a combination of locks, keys, or puzzles.
