Mary and Martha Bible Activities for Sunday School


The Right Time Activity for Sunday School

Have your children hold hands in the middle of the room and form a circle. Two adults hold hands to form a tunnel. The children walk around in a circle passing through the tunnel as they sing the song below. When the last word of the song is sung, the tunnel comes down and captures a child. The child then must answer a question (below) to be freed. Keep playing until all the children have had a chance to answer a question.

Do You Do the Right Thing?
Written by Carolyn
(Sing to the tune of "Do Your Ears Hang Low")

Do you do the-right thing?
At the time you're supposed to do it?
Do you listen to your mom?
Do you listen to your dad?
Do you do it at the right time or do you wait to long to do it?
Do you do the-right thing?

Act Out the Story

Act out the story from the Bible or have your children place it in modern times and then act it out.



Play Charades Using Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Write the verse on pieces of paper. Have your children take turns picking a piece of paper and acting out what is written. The person who guesses correctly gets to take his turn next. Let each child guess only one time.



Picture Bible Verse Review Game

Read Eccl. 3:1-8, and then hold up the pictures that your children have drawn one at a time. See if the children can identify which pictures go with which part of the verse. Place all the pictures in order and see if the children can say the complete verse by looking at the pictures.

We are loving the curriculum and do use the stories, songs, crafts, and snack ideas. You are what we were looking for - it took us 2 years to find you! Now I tell everyone I know about you! Thank you again! Tammy

I am always so excited to search for a craft for my 4-5 yr old children's church class on your site. I used some of your ideas for VBS and the kids and grownups loved them. Thank you again for the inspirational, wonderful ideas. I get excited just preparing for class. I think the kids will have a ball. Thank you and God bless you for your wonderful work. Misty

I'm from Port Elizabeth, South Africa and I teach 2 Sunday School classes. An English class in the morning (3-5 years) and an Afrikaans class on Sunday afternoons (5-8 years) I'm sure that you get a lot of these "thank you e-mails" but I'll send you another one anyway :) I just want to sincerely thank you for all the great ideas. I don't know what I would of done without you! There are lots of sites out there but none that are nearly as good as yours. Thank you again and GOD BLESS YOU!
