THE OVERALL IDEA:
The kids are Missionaries “knocking” on doors. (It’s a match game on the board with cute Halloween monsters behind the doors.)
1. Invite a pair of “Missionaries” to “knock” on doors. While they “knock” and try to make a match, sing a missionary song so everyone can help them find an Investigator. Keep “knocking” and singing until the “Missionaries” make a match.
2. If the match is Monsters that means the Monster has a question about the church! Have the Monster ask the Missionaries a question. Have the Missionaries answer it. Then whole Primary answers the question with a song (IE:, “This monster wants to know about baptism. Do we know a baptism song?! Let’s sing Baptism!)
3. If the match is Halloween Guys – that means it’s a trick! or a treat! Sing one of the Halloweeny songs (list below).
***Give the kids this Warning!…
The guys behind these doors are TREATS,
and are oh-so-sweet.BUT you better BEWARE!There are some TRICKS out there!
