Game: That’s Not Fair Chairs
This game is played like musical chairs. The children walk around some chairs until the music stops. There will be one chair less than the number of children playing and when the music stops, the child without a chair is out of the game. When that happens, all of the children will all say, “THAT’S NOT FAIR!” and then the music will start once again. Continue playing until just one child is left standing with a chair and all the other children will say, THAT’S NOT FAIR! Then tell today’s Bible story to the children as they sit in the chairs in a circle today.

Craft: God Gives Us A “Bunch” of Blessings
This is a cute craft. The picture is a just a drawing but you could do more with it to make it cut-er. I would suggest having purple circles to make a bunch of grapes on a piece of paper. Have the children draw or write things that they are thankful to God for.

Story: Acting Out the Story
On this website they used pom-poms to show the difference of how much each person was paid in the story but you really could use any object, even using real money for older kids. This is just another simple but fun way to act out the story for the kids.

Food: Grape Shish-kabobs
Basically just put grapes on sticks but a fun way for the kids to eat something related to the story. If you do this please but up an allergy alert.
