Bible Memory Games: Part 1
Here are a couple of fun ways to teach Bible verses to your kids, or anything else you want them to memorize!
Introducing a New Verse:
- Say the verse together one time.
- Ask them to tell you what the most important words in the verse are and underline them.
- Talk about any words they don’t understand.
Bible Memory Game: Sound Effects
Items needed: White board and marker
- Write the Scripture verse on the board.
- When the verse is read, you emphasize every punctuation mark in a funny way. For instance, quotation marks are a double click with the tongue, commas are a snap, periods are a clap, semi colons are 2 snaps, and exclamation marks are a stomp of the foot. This is a lot of fun! Try to do it fast
Bible Memory Review: Act UP
Items needed: Stage area, voting paddles and a sharpie for each team, one random prop to make it fun, and candy for prizes.
Preparation: Divide the kids into three or more teams.
- Each team has to act out the memory verse, so get the teams together and make sure they have the Bible Verse memorized before you tell them the game.
- They should be given their random prop and be encouraged to use it creatively in their skit.
- They should be given take several minutes to come up with their dialog and actions and then rehearse.
- Each team will have a turn up on the stage doing their skit for the other kids.
- The other teams will write points (1-10) on their voting paddles. They cannot vote when their own team performs.
- Add up the points clap for the winners
- All the teams say the verse together.
- Give each kid a turn to tell a leader the verse and give out some candy!
