Game DescriptionYouth will cut up pumpkins and then try to put a cut up pumpkin back together again. (This game can get a little messy with the slimy pumpkin innards.)
Prepare a table for each team by covering it with newspaper so soak up an debris from the pumpkins.
Place a pumpkin, a knife, and toothpicks at each table
Divide the group into teams
Give the teams one minute to cut up the pumpkin into at least 10 pieces.
Teams move to a different table.
Teams have 2 minutes to put the pumpkin at their table back together using the toothpicks to hold it together
The team with the most complete pumpkin at the end of 2 minutes is the winner.
ApplicationUse this as an object lesson on how sin destroys the wholeness in our lives. Things can become quite a mess. Yet Christ restored us with his sacrifice on the cross. Its not toothpicks that hold us together but his forgiveness and the nails in his hands.
