Watch your words

4 stars

For this game you need a few tubes of toothpaste

Ask youth to take all the toothpaste out of the tube as quick as possible into a bowl.  

Then ask them to put the toothpaste back inside the tube.  Obviously this is a little more difficult.  

The lesson is to watch how you speak because it's much more difficult (if not impossible) to take our words back.

There are lots of bible verses on this, but some to focus on include James 3:6, James 1:26, Proverbs 21:23, etc
