Butterfly Bible Verse Review Card Games (Older Children)

This is a type of match game, but instead of matching another card, the students match words up to the Bible verse in the order of the verse.

Butterfly Bible Verse Review Game for Sunday School from www.daniellesplace.comWhat to do:

1. Print out the Cards onto card stock. Make a set for every 3 or 4 students in your class. (Printable Cards are available on The Resource Room.)

2. On the back of each card print one word from the memory verse: "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. II Corinthians 5:17

3. Print the memory verse on a sheet of paper for each group.

How to play:

1. Break the students up into groups of 3 or 4. Give a set of cards to each group. Have each group spread all their cards out in front of them.

2. The object of the game is to be the student who picks up the most cards. The students take turns looking for the words to the verse by turning over a card they think might contain the word they are looking for. If the card they turn over doesn't match the word, they turn it back over and the next player takes a turn. The students must find the words in order. For instance, to start the game everyone is looking for the first word of the verse, "Therefore." The student who finds the word "Therefore" gets to keep that card. After the word "Therefore" is found, the students take turns turning over cards to look for the word "if". They keep going in this manner until all the words are found in order.

3. As the students find a word from the verse they can cross off the word on the sheet they were given so they can keep track of the next word to be found.

4. On the word go children take turns running to the cards, finding the card that is next in sequence to spell out the verse, and placing it in order. Each child can only move one card on his or her turn. The team that gets all the cards in place first wins. For example, the first child will look for the first word of the Bible verse and place it at the top of the pile. The second child will look for the second word and place it to the right of the first word.

"Love Is" Card Games

1. Play "Find the Love Bugs" Card Game

Love Is Match Game www.daniellesplace.comPlace all the cards in a bag and mix them up. Tell your children that you caught a lot of bugs, some are "love bugs" and some aren't. Have them take turns reaching in the bag and pulling out a card. If the card is a "love bug", the child gives an example of how we can love from what is written on the card. For example, if he pulls out a "Love is Kind" card, he may say, "We can be kind by giving to others." That child can then get a snack. If a child picks a "bad bug", he doesn't receive a snack this time, but will have another chance to pick a card his next turn. (Printable Cards in both the KJV and NIV Available on The Resource Room.)

2. Play "Find the Bugs"

Use just enough cards (from above activity) so that you have one card for every child and each card has a match. If you don't have any even amount of children, have a helper play the game. Before class hide the cards around your room. On the word go, the children should all try to find one card and then try to find the other child in the class who has the matching card. (Printable Cards in both the KJV and NIV Available on The Resource Room.)

3. Play "Match the Love Bugs" Card Game

Use the cards from the above activities, but print out a matching set. Remove all the "bad bug" cards except for one. Turn over all the cards and let the children take turns trying to find matches. If a child turns over a "bad bug" card, he loses his turn. Make sure the children turn the cards back over and place them in the same location each turn if they don't match. Each time a child turns over a card, read what it says on the card to help them remember the Bible verse. (Printable Cards in both the KJV and NIV Available on The Resource Room.)

4. Play "Go Buggy" - (Older Children)

This game is played like "Go Fish" and "Old Maid" combined. The object of the game is to not get stuck with the "bad bug" card at the end of the game. Before class print out two sets of cards for every three students. Remove one "bad bug" card from every set. You should have only one "bad bug" card per set of cards. Place your children into groups of three, and have them pass out all the cards between them. One child will have an extra card, that child should start the round.

If a child is holding any matches in his hand, he places them down in front of him on the table. Children then take turns asking someone in their group if they have a certain card. If the child they ask has the card, he has to give it to him. If the child doesn't have the card, he says, "Go buggy" and the child asking must pick a card from his hand. If a child matches all his cards and places them on the table in front of him, he is out of the game until the next round. When all the cards have been matched and placed on the table in front of the children, the child left holding the "bad bug" card is out of the game. The remaining three children then start a new round. They play the same way, and the child who is left holding the "bad bug" card in the second round is out of the game. The two remaining children play the "play off" round to see who will win. They don't ask each other if they have a certain card, they just take turns picking cards from each other. The child who isn't left with the "bad bug" card wins the game. (Printable Cards in both the KJV and NIV Available on The Resource Room.)

Rules and Instructions:

1. Read the Bible verses and fill in the missing words to find out what object you will be looking for. If you don't know the answer, you can look it up in your Bible.

2. The object you are looking for may be only part of the missing word. For example, the missing word may be boxes. If the "es" on boxes is filled in and not part of the blank line ( _____es), you should only look for the missing part of the word, which would be only one box.

3. The object you are looking for may be a combination of two missing words from two different Bible verses.

4. Also, the missing word or object to be found in the verse does not have to be taken literally (exactly how it is used in the verse). For example, the word could be frog, which is referring to a real live frog, but you could use a picture of a frog. However, you may not draw the picture yourself. You cannot create the objects. You must find them already created.

5. Do not pick any plants that are alive.

If you have very young children, make only one set of cards. Turn over all the cards and have your children take turns picking a card. If they pick a cow card, they say the Bible verse. If they pick a picture card, they say what the talent might be and how we can use it to help others. This game goes along with the lesson about Joseph interpreting the King's dream on The Resource Room.

Memory Cross Folding Paper Game - Learn the Ten Commandments Game

Memory Cross cards are a great way for children to memorize Bible verses. They will love folding the panels in a never ending loop. The Ten Commandment Cards in the video below come in a set of ten cards plus two of Jesus' Commandments. Children can memorize the commandments by reading the first panel, guessing what comes on the next panel, and then folding it over to see if they are correct. They can continue in this manner until the commandment is memorized.

Once all the Commmandments are memorized you can use them as a game. Break up your students into teams and give each team a set of cards. Mix up the cards and have the teams read them and place them in order. The team that gets them all in order first wins. Order the Ten Commandment cards from Memory Cross Inc.
