Bronze Serpent Night:


Snake tail

This snake tail game is a lot like other indoor games for kids such as octopus tip , but this game is unique in itself - the last one to be part of the snake wins! The only way to become part of the snake is to be touched by one of the ends.

In this game all you need people and and a large room.
Make an outline of a large area in order that everyone stays inside it. You will need to have a large enough room so people can move about.

You pick one person to be in.

Third-The rules
Tell everyone that no one is to go out of the square. If the person who is IT, touches you, you join hands. Only the ends of the snake tail can tip you. Once you have been tipped, you have to go to the back of the snake(not to the front). Since you are the end now, you can tip another person until another person is the end is stead of you.

Other things:

Enjoy yourselves. There aren't many snake games, but this is one of them. Indoor games kids are very enjoyable and fun. I hope you enjoy this game. It is ideal for a group of 30-40 people.


Read Numbers 21:5-9

Review the story by talking about complaining and how God doesn't like it because he is in charge of all our circumstances (Romans 8:28)

Next, you can have the kids act it out by having some pretend to be snakes, and others be Israelites

Finally, get everyone back together and talk about the serpent on a stick.  John 3:14 tells us, "Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up;" followed by talking about John 3:16.

After the message and prayer, snack and then the following craft.


Braided Snake

Simply cut three strands off of material 3 inches wide by 36 inches long (1 yard).  Get wiggly eyes and use a glue gun.  If you let the kids braid three strands, tie a not on each end, and glue gun the eyes on, you have a snake.  Optional is to cut a tongue and glue gun that as well.
