Body Building


A Game for Your Sunday Box
(See Friend, November 1983, page 27.)

Glue list of scripture references and body parts to sheet of heavy paper, then cut out. Place references in bowl or sack.

To play the game: Each player starts with any two body parts. One player draws a reference strip and reads the verse aloud from the scriptures. For each good food mentioned in the scripture, the player takes an additional body part. He must put back a body part for each harmful substance mentioned in the scripture. Players take turns drawing reference strips. The player who first builds a complete body is the winner. If, after all the reference strips have been drawn, no player has completed a body, put all the strips back into the bowl or sack and continue playing. If a player draws a scripture that mentions harmful substances and he has no body parts, the player is not penalized. Below is a list of good and harmful foods that you will find mentioned in the scriptures.
