On a week when our Bible story was Jesus washing the disciples feet, we decided to celebrate that in a special way. We advertised the Barefoot Olympics for our Sunday morning kids service. When the kids arrived, we had games set up that all had something to do with feet, and they all had to check their shoes at the door.
