Plays, puppet shows, craft and games I wrote for the youth of our church.
As everything comes from God, I would like to share it with other churches. You can change and adapt to suit the age group you work with.
Grave Yard Visit/The Empty Tomb(4 chairs are covered with black. The back rests act as grave stones with names and descriptions written on them. On the floor of each chair is a body, except by Jesus’ name) Two boys stand on side of stage.
Llawdden: Truth or dare?
Llawdden: I dare you to go to the grave yard.
Xavien: I would, but I must go home.
Llawdden: Scardy cat! Scardy cat! You are scared!
Xavien: I am not. You come with me.(The two boys whistle while they walk to the grave yard. They fall over a body and scream)
Xavien: It is only a dead bbbboddy.
Llawdden: Dead bodies don’t bite. (Both boys are shivering with fear.)
Xavien: Go read his name. Who was buried here?
Llawdden: (Tries to read the name) A George somebody. This oke believed the worldStarted with a bang and there was no God. (Xavien finds two pot lids on the body. He bangs them together while saying “big Bang!” Llawdden nearly has a heart attack, he jumps so high and on to Xavien.)
Xavien: You scared hey?
We all know God made the world and everything in it.
Llawdden: Who is this guy? Points to Darwin.
Xavien: (reads from the tombstone) Darwin. He believed we came from apes. Ha ha. He Did not believe that God made us.(They find a monkey puppet or toy on Darwin and fool around with it.) Monkey: Hallo, my Name is Xavien.
Llawdden: Look, here is Elvis!
Xavien: Picks up a guitar lying on Elvis and starts singing: “You aint nothing but a hound dog.”
Llawdden: Xavien come look! This grave is empty!
Xavien: That is strange. Whose name is written on the tombstone?
Both boys read: JESUS CHRISTTwo angels appear.
Matthew 28: 5
…”Don ‘t be afraid!” ….”I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. …go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead…”
Revelation 1: 18
In Revelations 1: 18 Jesus says: “I am He that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore. Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.”
