Sunday School Treasure Hunt Activity
Why you should consider hosting a Sunday School Treasure Hunt Activity!
Moment of truth: Sunday School is not always ‘fun’.
By the kids’ standards of what constitutes fun, Sunday School is probably not what immediately comes to their minds. There are no video games, superheroes, or animation. They are required to sit down and to listen to “a lesson” ( either a story or a spiritual concept) or to learn about the history of the Church ( through discussions about the Feasts, Fasts, and Sacraments).
My fellow servants (shout out to Marian Badry and Ireini Ghobri) introduced a novel idea last year that we have continued this year. Every fifth Sunday, we have a FUNDAY as opposed to a regular lesson. A Sunday School session of fun activities that still contains a spiritual component. Cue in the Sunday School Treasure Hunt Activity!
Today, we had the first Sunday FUNDAY of the year and it was an absolute blast!
Here is how you can create your own Sunday School Treasure Hunt!
- Divide the class into 2 teams and each team.
- Each team has to collect its color-coded clues.
- Hide the clues outdoors around the perimeter of the church.
- The 6 clues we created were multiple-choice questions covering the lessons that we had covered since the beginning of the Coptic Sunday School year in September.
- The team with the most correct answers won the trophy ( but all the kids received a token gift).
This was followed up by a game of dodge ball- (note to self: bring flat shoes next FUNDAY).
It was so great to see the kids having a good time. Hopefully, they will associate Sunday School with ‘fun’ even without video games!
