The Epiphany Game

It must be that time of night – if you need an Epiphany thing for church children’s groups here’s a game that’s quite fun to play:  Epiphany game

Print out the sheets (either two to a page, or four to a page, depending on how big you want them to be), and cut them out.

Arrange them on the floor in order (or give them to people to hold if that makes more sense, as long as they’re sitting roughly in a line or circle – this is the way we did it in a school collective worship).

Use a large dice if you have one (or make one by wrapping a cube shaped teabag box or tissue box in Christmas paper and drawing the spots on with a sharpie).

Use three real people as ‘counters’ (the three magi, each with a different coloured crown on, from Christmas crackers).

Talk about the elements of the Epiphany story as you play the game.

I added ‘collect a heart’ at the Bethlehem square – you can cut these out of paper, or use heart shaped chocolates or biscuits. You have to roll a one to start, and you have to exactly land on Bethlehem, you can’t just go past it and carry on.

Enjoy.
