As you design your obstacle course, keep in mind the ages, abilities, and number of children involved as well as the space you have. Make the course simple at first and change the stations as they are mastered. If you like, time the kids to see who can complete the course fastest. Below are a few ideas to get you started.


Ten stations is a good number for most kids.  At each station provide a review question or Bible Skill to be answered or preformed before completing the obstacle.

Bible Review Questions– Who, What, When, Where of the story and include some application questions (How, Why).

Bible Skills Tasks– Find the Bible book, name the books before & after, recite the memory verse, find a Bible reference for the story, put books of the Bible in order.
