DECK THE HALLS IN THE DARK

ITEMS NEEDED:

Two blindfolds, two colors of candy canes, a Christmas tree

INSTRUCTIONS:

Pick two players for this game. Give each kid eight candy canes, a different color each. Put blindfolds on each kid. The kids will throw their candy canes at the tree to see how many they can get on the tree. The kid who gets the most canes to stick wins.

VARIATION:

This can also be a timed game for one player. The player has 60 seconds to get five candy canes to stick on the tree. Keep giving him candy canes to throw until time runs out or he gets five on the tree.

WHAT’S THE POINT?

Jesus is the light that broke into our darkened world.
