You might have played “Pin the tail on the donkey”, but in this game, you are going to attempt to pin Balaam on his donkey. Use the free pdf template of the sitting Balaam. Make a copy for each player (enlarging if necessary). You can add color if you like. You may want to copy these on card stock for sturdiness, and/or laminate them. Purchase a typical “Pin the tail on the donkey” game from a party supply store to use the donkey. Blindfold each player, spin them around a few times, then let them attempt to pin Balaam directly on the saddle of the donkey. After having some fun playing, discuss the incident of the talking donkey. Why did the Lord allow the donkey to talk to Balaam? What did the donkey actually do for him? Why was the Angel of the Lord unhappy with Balaam?
You can read about Balaam and his donkey in Numbers 22:1-40.
