Welcome

“Hello and welcome to Motion! My name is _________ and I’ll be your guide during this final week of The Force of Kindness. We’ll be traveling to the Star Wars universe as we look to uncover acts of kindness shown by some of Star Wars’ most famous characters. Before we dive into our epic story for the day, I’d like to introduce a special group of people who are visiting eKidz for the first time today. Motion, put your hands together for our VIPs!

(initiate applause)

If it’s your first time here, we consider you a VIP – a very important person! VIPs, turn your attention to the screen because I’ve got some special instructions just for you.

(refer to the screen)

This is a VIP lanyard. If you’re a VIP, you’re wearing this around your neck right now.

[VIP Slide – Lanyard]

When you leave Motion, you need to take that lanyard to the orange tent called the Welcome Area.

Once you get to the Welcome Area, show them your lanyard and they will give you a gift!

Let’s review.

Game Setup – Combat Training

“During The Force Of Kindness, you’ve learned to use your speed, and accuracy in our other Jedi training games. Today, however, you young Jedi will be put to the ultimate test. Before you graduate from the Jedi Academy, you’ve got to test everything you’ve learned against a true Jedi Master: me. During this game you’ll have to dodge, block, and Force Push your way to victory.

I’ll begin by performing some basic moves. I may chop from left or right, swing low or swing high. Whenever I do those moves, you’ll have to block or dodge out of the way. If I swing to my left, you’ll need to hold up your lightsaber and block the blow. Same thing if I swing from the right – use your lightsaber to block the attack.

If I swing my lightsaber low, you’ll need to jump over it. Let’s practice that now!

(swing low and give kids the chance to jump straight up)

Great job. Now if I chop high, it might go a little slower, leaving me open to a counter attack and you the opportunity to Force Push me out of the way. Everyone practice a force push now!

(as kids Force Push, the Host should stumble backwards as if they were hit by it)

Pretty good, young Jedi, but let’s see how you do when the stakes are much higher! If I catch you moving to slow or performing the wrong moves, your eGroup leaders will ask you to sit out for a short time.

Everyone stand up, spread out and let’s get ready for some Combat Training!”

The Force of Kindness Episode Setup

“Great job during today’s game! You’ve completed the final chapter in your Jedi training and are now fully authorized to carry and use a lightsaber in 12 different solar systems. Congratulations!

Motion, this reminds me of when the young group of Jedi we saw last week first completed their Jedi training by finding their very own lightsaber crystals. It wasn’t easy, but I think our young Jedi learned a valuable lesson along the way. Check out the screen!”

(initiate applause, walk off stage)

Love Week Promo

“The Force of Kindness has been a series about how we can show kindness to the people around us. Beginning this week our church kicks off an entire week showing kindness throughout the city we live in. As eKidz, we want you to participate with your family during this incredible event. In fact, right after your parents come pick you up, you’ll have your first opportunity to serve!

At the first event you go to, you’ll receive this awesome Love Week shirt that looks like this:

(refer to the picture of the Love Week shirt)

and you’ll have whoever is running the event sign your shirt in one of the squares on your back. Every event you go to means you’ll earn another signature and you’ll earn prizes when you wear your shirt back next week based on the amount of signatures you get. How cool is that? Serve your city, earn prizes! It’s so easy!
