Creative Ideas ~ For every age!
Have a family water balloon battle!
Unreel the garden hose and enjoy a fun afternoon together! Divide up into teams, or play “every man for himself,” and see who can stay the driest—and who gets the most drenched!
Or, if the weather isn’t quite conducive to playing in the water, have a family field day instead. Organize relay races, tug-of-war matches, and even an obstacle course! Then reward everyone’s hard work with a treasure hunt to find a special prize at the end!
Why not share the fun with others who are studying 1 Peter? Just add a favorite photo to Instagram using the hashtag #1PeterSS.

Organize a family sword drill!
Have everyone bring their Bibles, and race each other to see who can find different verses or passages the fastest! Whoever gets there first gets to read the verse. Put together a list of passages to use in your Sword Drill. Take time to find verses that all relate to a specific theme. One idea would be to choose passages that would be an encouragement when we are fighting temptation or enduring a “fiery trial.”

Organize a game night!
Plan a fun evening of friendly competition with your family and friends! Choose your favorite board games, cards games, word games, or even outdoor games to make the evening a blast! (And don’t forget about snacks—all that competition will make people hungry!) You could even organize the games into tournaments, and have a special prize for the overall winner!
Don’t forget to capture your fun evening on camera and share it on Facebook using the hashtag #1PeterSS!

Teach your family a new game!
Using a deck of cards or pieces from an already existing game, make up something totally new to play with your family! Or, if you’re the artistic type, design your own board game and pieces using cardboard or sturdy paper. Once you figure out what the object of your game will be, come up with some rules to help it run smoothly and make it more interesting. Then try it out with the rest of your family!
Share a picture of your family enjoying your new game with others who are studying 1 Peter! Simply add it to Instagram using the hashtag #1PeterSS.

Design a first-place ribbon!
Draw the outline of a ribbon on a piece of paper, and then have your mom or dad help you cut it out very carefully. After that, you’re free to decorate it however you want! Most first-place ribbons are blue, but you can use any color—or even a rainbow of shades! Maybe you’ll even use some glitter for an extra-special touch. Once your ribbon is done, hang it up in your room to remind you that we are in a battle—but God is on our team, so we have already won!
Be sure to have your mom or dad take a picture of your ribbon and post it on Instagram using the hashtag #1PeterSS!
