Make It Stick Activity:   Hopscotch Holdup

Made to Move: an activity that increases the oxygen in the brain and taps into the energy in the body

What You Need: Dice and Sidewalk Chalk (if you need to stay indoors: Construction paper, markers, painter’s tape) 

What You Do:

  • Enlist kids’ help in setting up the hopscotch path by drawing on sidewalk or constructing with paper 
    • Draw a question mark on three of the squares
  • Give your child a die and roll for how many spaces they should hop. (The spots with two squares next to each other count as two spaces.)
  • Whenever your child lands on a “?” spot, ask them a story review question (below).
  • Repeat as much as you want. If you run out of questions, repeat the questions below or make up some of your own!

Review Questions:

    1.     Who appeared to Philip in the middle of him telling people about Jesus? (an angel of the Lord)
    2.     What did the angel tell him to do? (to leave and go to the desert road that led to Gaza)
    3.     Who did Philip encounter while traveling on the desert road? (an Ethiopian official) 
    4.     What was the man doing? (he had traveled to worship God in the temple and was trying to read Scripture)
    5.     What did God tell Philip to do? (go to the chariot)
    6.     And what did Philip do after he realized the Ethiopian official needed help understanding the Scripture? (he told the man about Jesus)
    7.     What big decision did the Ethiopian official make after learning all about Jesus? (he got baptized)
    8.     What happened to Philip after the man was baptized? (God’s Spirit took him away so he could continue telling people about Jesus)

What You Say:

“Showing determination can be difficult when you have some questions holding you up, can’t it? The Ethiopian official could have easily gotten frustrated when he wasn’t understanding the words that were written about God. Have you ever had a question you just couldn’t seem to understand? What did you do? (Allow time for responses.) 

“Instead of letting his question hold him back, the man from Ethiopia let Philip help him learn more about who Jesus was. And you know the end of the story. His determination led to a pretty amazing outcome! I wonder what epic story could be on the other side of our determination? Let today’s story be a reminder that you can [Bottom Line] keep going even when you have questions.”
