Chat 'n Roar Time
A jungle playground where I play, play, play!
(Use easy-to-make "Turn-Around Twins" puppets-on-a-straw-with circle faces taped at the top of the straw, back-to-back-one is "Roar" and the other, "Chat." Make Roar a pair of pretend sunglasses!)
Roar (wearing cool-looking sunglasses): Hey, Chat, look at ME! I am SOOOO very cool, I am awesome, I am handsome, I am famous, I am.........
Chat (interrupting): Oh, Roar, cut it out. I don't want to hear any more of your proud talk. All you ever think about is "ME...ME...ME..."
Roar (strutting around): OK, Chat, if that is how you feel I'll go find some other friends. THEY will think I am SOOOO very cool and awesome and handsome and famous....and..........
Chat (interrupting again): DISGUSTING! Go-find some other friends; I don't care!
(Roar struts around for a while in the jungle until he meets a whole family of ants, gathering food from the jungle trails. He decides they would make good friends. He looks DOWN, WAY down, at the ants.)
Roar: HELLO, little black ants. I AM RRRROAR, your BIG, SOOOO very cool, awesome, handsome, famous, wonderful new FRIEND! Come closer so I can pet your backs with my soft paw......don't be afraid.....
(The ants look at each other. They begin talking "ant talk" that Roar can't understand-and they plan a perfect way to get rid of this giant lion who THINKS he is sooooo cool. And the plan worked....Listen to the rest of this story!)
Roar, suddenly feeling like he was crawling all over: Oh, NO, somebody help me. My SKIN, my beautiful tiger skiin, is crawling all over-it feels terrible.....oh, oh, oh, somebody help me.......please..........something is terribly wrong!
Ants (giggling among themselves): Don't worry, Tiger. You wanted friends and we will be your friends, your CLOSE friends.............NOW do you think you are soooo very cool and awesome and handsome and famous........
Roar: No, NO, I am CRAWLING all over..........i'm getting away from ALL of you RIGHT NOW.
Ants (more giggling): OK, COOL MISTER TIGER, just try..........
(Roar begins slowly walking back to Chat, his real friend; he couldn't strut like before, because he was too busy trying to get the crawling ants off his back and tail and tummy and every other part of his no-more-beautiful body.)
Chat (seeing poor Roar such a mess): Tiger, what happened? Come here.......let me clean you up.
Roar: Oh, Chat, I am so sorry I was nasty to you. You are a true friend. I was wrong. I was wayyyyy too proud and I am sorry.
Chat: I forgive you, Roar......now give me those COOOL sunglasses; I am going to wear them so I can't see all the little ants crawling all over you.......oh, (giggling), it IS kind of funny............
And so Roar found out who his true friend was, and he learned a hard lesson. Last time I saw him, he was doing clean-up in the jungle, the most humble job in the whole jungle of animals--and guess who was helping him? Chat, who really did forgive him and become his TRUE humble friend..........but that's not all......
Roar discovered a long trail of ants all headed towards him....."We're here to help you too, Chat........we sorta like you and we may even learn to LOVE you, you soooo cool, awesome, handsome, famous and HUMBLE tiger.......
Roar smiled-he was almost going to HUG the ants and then he thought, NO, I would squash them, so he said to them, in lion language they could not understand, "Ants, you taught me a great lesson. Thank you, little creatures. YOU are the soooo cool, awesome, handsome, famous and humble ANTS and I think we are going to be friends.....sorta.......just don't crawl on me again, OK??"
The ants could not understand tiger-language but they knew Roar was now a friendly big-guy-in-the-jungle and he would protect them from danger. They scurried along, back to their ant-cave, smiling all the way!
And they ALL, wearing very cool sunglasses, lived happily ever after!
A jungle tour thru the Bible where I learn awesome Bible stories!
Today's Bible story: "What Did You Say?" (The Tower of Babel)
Be sure to learn the Bible verse that is in this story activity!

Chat 'n Roar Time
A jungle talk-time where I learn to love God, family, friends & ME!'
Is it OK to be proud of all the things you are learning and can do? (Name some of the things like riding a bike or learning to read.) Sure, God is pleased when He sees us growing and learning how to do difficult things.
So when do we get in trouble? When we are so proud that we think we can do everything by ourselves and we do not need God or anyone else to help us and teach us--when WE want to be BIGGER and BETTER than ANYONE else and we TELL everyone how BIG and BETTER we are. That is called "pride" and God is not pleased. He wants us to be "humble" which means we do not brag about all we do. Remember what happened in the Bible story!
Now play this game. Do you have a collection of wooden blocks (or anything else you can stack)? Share them with a friend as each of you make your own tall, tall tower. See who makes the tallest one. As you build the towers, pretend you are the people in the Bible story.....at first, you talk to each other so it is understandable; then after a little while, one person will decide to start the game-talk in "gobble-de-gook," making up silly words in a silly sentence and then the other person must finish it. YOU are not allowed to laugh. The first one who laughs has to be the HELPER of the other person for a whole day.
Remember, God is pleased when we understand that we are not better than anyone else. We are all different and that's OK. We must compliment others and not ourselves, or we will not have many friends. When we compliment others, we will find we have A LOT of friends. That is how we please the Lord. Ask the Lord to help you do something nice for a person today.
NOW, take turns giving sincere compliments to the other person you are playing with...think of every wonderful thing you can say about that person. See who can play this game the longest-you or your friend.
