Theme Ideas: Chocolate

Wednesday 7th March 2018

Try out these chocolate themed ideas with your section:

Chocolate Corners

In preparation create four signs featuring a different chocolate (i.e. Mars, Twix, Milky Way, Buttons) and put these in the four corners of your meeting space. To play the game, ask the children to run around the room until they hear the whistle or a leader shouts ‘Corners’. At this point the children need to run to a corner of their choice, and once everyone has settled, a leader should call out one of the corner names. Anyone stood in this corner is out of the game. Carry on playing the game, until you have a winner. When there are less young people in the game, you may want to close a corner or two, or only allow a maximum of 1 person in each corner, to help get the last few out a little quicker.

Get Creative: Chocolate Creations


  • Chocolate (needs to be melted)
  • Assorted toppings/ingreidents (Marshmallows, Smarties, Jelly Tots, Jelly Beans, Dolly mixture, popping candy, fudge, Rice Krispies, Cornflakes, etc)
  • Paper cases
  • Wooden Skewers


Just provide the children with a supply of melted chocolate along with a range of ingredients from the list of ideas above. Leave the chocolate to set by putting into the fridge or leaving to one side. Ask them to think about a name and provide an opportunity for them to share what’s in their creation.

Chocolate Game

Ask the children to sit in a large circle around a table and chair. When you start the game, have one dice go around the circle, in turn each child has a roll and if they roll a 6 then they can go to the table, put on the hat, gloves and scarf and then start eating the chocolate on the table. They are not allowed to use their hands however. Whilst this is happening, the dice should continue to go around the circle and if another person rolls a 6, then they can come up to the table and swap places.

Get Active: Box of Chocolates

Based on the popular ‘Port & Starboard’ game, this is a great way of combining a familiar game with your chocolate theme.

Shout out the names of chocolates and the children respond by doing the associated action.

The actions are:

  • Mars Run to the right-hand side of the room
  • Galaxy Run to the left-hand side of the room
  • Milky Way Run to the top of the room
  • Magic Stars Run to the bottom of the room
  • Penguin Waddle around like a penguin
  • Lion Hands up as claws, roaring like a lion
  • Aero Run around like an aeroplane
  • Kit Kat Walk on all fours, meowing like a cat
  • Wispa Index finger on lips and say “shhhhh”
  • Twirl Spin around on the spot once

The last person to carry out an action is out. The winner is the last person standing.

Get in to the Bible: Prayer Parcel

An activity that encourages thought and prayer. In preparation wrap up some chocolate in a number of layers of paper. In each layer place a word or picture of someone or something that the group could pray for or think about. Ideas could include the word or picture linked to family, school, friends, The Queen, politicians, our world, food, war, etc. Sit the children in a circle and pass the parcel until the music stops. The person holding the parcel removes a layer of paper and reads out or describes the word or picture. Ask the group what things we might pray for about that particular subject (i.e. they might mention a friend who is not well). Once some of the children have shared something, restart the music and keep going until you reach the middle of the parcel. Share out the chocolate in the middle and finish this activity with a prayer bringing together all of what has been shared.
