Acting out scripture stories is fun for all ages. For the little ones, you could act out something that you have discussed in class. You could do a whole set of charades based on a theme: like ways to Choose the Right: read the scriptures, pray, be baptized...Once they get the hang of it, have them act a few out too. For the older children, divide the class in two teams. Have each team write on small pieces of paper, things for the other team to act out. You can use a theme too.

Pioneer days, faith promoting experiences, Bible stories...Have a child from team "A" pick a paper from team "B's" pile of items. Have him act it out. If his team can guess what he's acting out in 60 seconds or less, his team gets a point. Then it's the other teams' turn.
