Dominoes Review Games

 

1. Bible Verse Topple

What you will need:

One of two sets of Dominoes, masking tape, and a permanent marker.

Preparation:

Before class write one word of the verse on pieces of masking tapes. Stick the pieces to the Dominoes. Use up all the Dominoes by writing the verse more than once. Before class divide up the Dominoes into two sets making sure you have sets of dominoes that spell out the complete verse. (If you have more than ten children, use more than one set of Dominoes and make more teams. Turn all the Dominoes over so that the words aren't showing.

Set Up:

1. In class divide up your children into two teams and give each team a set of dominoes that you prepared earlier.

How to Play:

1. Children on each team should take turns turning over one Domino at a time trying to find the words of the verse in order. If a child finds the correct word, he gets to set up a Domino so that it is standing up right. He then gets to take another turn to see if he can find the next word in the verse. He keeps taking turns until he picks up a word that is not in sequence.

2. The next child would then take a turn trying to find the next word in the verse. The team that sets up all its Dominoes in a row first wins.

3. The child that places the last Domino gets to knock over the first Domino in the row to set off the cascading effect.

The Consequences of Sin Object Lesson Using Craft Sticks and the Exploding Cobra Weave What you will need: Jumbo Craft Sticks and Markers First check out this Youtube video on how to make a mini cobra weave using craft sticks. Practice putting it together until you have mastered it. In class explain to your children that all sin has consequences. It doesn't matter if it is a little white lie or murder. All sin keeps us from God. Have your children think of sins that we may commit daily or may make excuses for, such as watching television shows that aren't pleasing to God, swearing, lying, cheating, etc., and then have them write the sins on the craft sticks. Weave all the craft sticks together to make a snake. Tell them that sin can be disatrous to our lives. When we commit one sin it makes it easier to comment even more until pretty soon they take over our lives. Remove one of the stick so that the "Snake" explodes to emphasize your point.

Paper, balloons, bucket, and small balls.

Have your children take turns throwing a ball into a bucket that is a couple of feet away (We gave them two balls and two tries.) If they get the ball in the bucket, they get to take one of the balloons and break it to get the verse out. Once all the balloons are broken, have your children put the words in order. We played this with two teams and the kids found it quite exciting. It is helpful to have helpers that will stand behind the bucket and return the balls to the next person in line. Sent in by Lynn

2. "Catch the Spirit" Fruit of the Spirit Bible Review Game

Fruit of the Spirit Bible Review Game for Sunday School from www.daniellesplace.comYou will need a large, solid-color rubber ball, large balloon, or beach ball, at least a foot wide, for this game. I bought a big ball at Wal-Mart for $3.00. (Beach balls would work better because they are easier to store when you are finished.

Draw pictures of the fruits studied so far in the lessons (apples, cherries, lemons, pineapples, tomatoes, oranges, and pears) on the ball with a permanent marker. Draw lines around the fruit pictures to enclose them in different shapes and connect them to the other fruit pictures.

In class have your children stand in a circle. Start by rolling or throwing the ball to someone. When a child catches the ball tell him to look under his right thumb to see in which space his thumb is resting. He should then say what the fruit is and what fruit of the Spirit it represents. If you have older children you can just write the name of the fruit instead of drawing pictures. Or you can write Bible verse references to the Bible verses from this series of lessons and see if the children can remember the verses.

You can also have the children throw the ball to each other, bounce the ball once on the floor before catching it, etc. You can also play like musical chairs and have the children pass the ball until the music stops. The child holding the ball should check where his thumb is setting and give the fruit of the Spirit represent by that fruit.

This Bible review games goes along with the Faithfullness Fruit of the Spirit Lesson on The Resource Room.

Bean Bag Toss Games

 

1. Tick-Tack-Toe Bible Lesson Review Game

What you will need: Mattel Toss Across (Optional - If you don't have a Toss Across game you can draw a Tick-tack-toe on the floor with painter's tape.) and Bean Bags. If you don't have a Toss Across Game, you will need bean bags that are two different colors or X and O markers such a index cards with X's and O's written on them.

Preparation: Before class set up the Toss Across Game or Tick-tack-toe on the floor. Place a piece of tape on the floor where the children should stand when tossing the bean bags.

How to Play:

Divide your class up into two teams - X's and O's. Take turns asking each team questions from the lesson. If a team gets the question correct, a team member gets to throw the bean bag at the Tick-tack-toe. If you aren't using the Toss Across Game, place an X or O marker on the space that the bean bag landed. If there is already a marker on that space, remove the marker and place a new marker indicating which team threw the bean bag. The team that gets three in a row first wins.

 

2. Toss the Bean Bag in the Can

Toss Jonah into the Whale Review Game - Kids love to play “toss” games. Paint an old metal canister (the kind crackers, cookies etc. come in) blue. Cut a whale shape from poster board, paint it grey, use a permanent marker to draw the eyes and mouth, and apply a self-adhesive strip magnet to the back. Since the can is metal the whale stays attached to it. To make the Jonah bean bags I used a piece off-white felt, colored a picture of a Biblical Man, printed it on a T-shirt transfer, and ironed it onto the felt. After cutting out a double thickness of the man, I hot glued the edges together leaving a hole in which I put in beans and then glued the rest shut.

The kids loved playing “Throw Jonah in the Whale’s Mouth”. Later we had a Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego” lesson. I made a fiery furnace out of poster board. A few months later we did “Baby Moses”. I made reeds out of construction paper (held on with magnets) and new bean bags with a picture of baby Moses in a basket. Possibilities are endless! Sent in by Sandy Petrille

Toss Bible Game for Sunday School www.daniellesplace.com

Use the toss game to review your Sunday School lesson. There are many games you can play.

1. If a child answers a questions correctly, he gets to try and throw the bean bag into the can. If he gets it in, his team gets a point.

2. Place questions written on sheets of paper inside the can. When a child gets the bean bag in the can, he takes out a sheet of paper and answers the questions on the sheet.

2. Find the Word Bible Verse Review Game

What you will need:

Paper, printer, scissors, and a word processing program.

Preparation:

1. Before class use a word processing program to print the words from your Bible verse. Use a different font for each word of the verse, make the words at least an inch high. After you have made all the words for the verse and printed them out make a copy of the words and then change the words to words that are similar. For example, if you have the word "face" in your Bible verse, you can change the "f" to a "t" and make the word "take". Do this for all the words in the Bible verse at least two times. Print out all the words. Make sure you don't use the Bible verse words more than once unless they are used more than once in your Bible verse.

2. After you have printed out all the pages, cut the words apart.

How to Play:

1. In class place all the words face up, spread out on a table. Remove all the chairs from around the table and have your children stand around the table.

2. Read the verse and then tell your children that you are going to have a contest to see who can find the most words first from the Bible verse. Tell them that the first word of the verse is "make". Let's see who can find the word "make" first. When a child finds the correct word he or she gets to keep it.

3. Then tell the children the second word and see who can find that second word. When you have gone through all the words, have the children count how many words they have found to see who collected the most.

4. Play the game again to review the verse again. Have the children place all the words back on the table and mix them up. Ask the children if they remember what the first word of the verse is and see who can find it first.

If you have very young children, you can show them what the word looks like before you have them look for the word. Before class print out more than one copy of the verse. To make it easier for young children, you can also just print the words from the verse and not use the extra words.

Sample Verse - "Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise."

As you go over the verse, stick the words to the back of the chairs in any order. Play like musical chairs, except each time the music stops, go over the Bible verse. To start have your children tell you what the first word of the Bible verse is. The child who is sitting in the seat with that word stuck to it takes the sticky note off and places it on the board. On the next round the child who is sitting on the chair with the second word of the verse takes it off and places it next to the first word. Keep playing until the whole verse is complete. Repeat the whole verse each time so your children learn it.

2. Hopscotch Bible Lessons Review Game or Verse Review Game for Sunday School

Hopscotch Bible Game for Sunday School www.daniellesplace.comWhat you will need:

Chalk or masking tape, sticky notes, bean bags, and a permanent marker

How to play: Use painters tape (masking tape) or chalk to make a hopscotch on your floor. Place sticky notes with the words of the verse on the right side of each square of the hopscotch. If you have more words than squares place them on the left side of the hopscotch so that the children can read them as they hop back to the beginning of the hopscotch. As the children jump on each square, or over each square, they must say the word next to that square.

To play children take turns throwing their bean bag into the squares in order starting at the beginning of the hopscotch. They then hop on one foot on each square that doesn't contain a beanbag. Where two squares are side by side on the hopscotch the children place both feet down, one on each square. When they come to the end of the hopscotch, they jump and turn and land on both feet in the opposite direction.

Normally, a player's turn isn't over until he or she makes a mistake, but for this game children have only one turn to jump the hopscotch. On each turn they get to pick up their bean bag and try to throw it into the next square. If the bean bag does not land in the next square, that child loses his turn and returns the bean bag to the square it was on. If the bean bag lands in the next square, the child gets to jump the hopscotch. If he does it successfully, he leaves his bean bag in that square. If he isn't successful he must place his bean bag back to the previous square and try again on his next turn.

The child that makes it to the end with his bean bag on the last square, saying the whole verse without jumping on any lines first, wins.

A hopscotch with squares 2' x 2' works well for fourth and fifth grade children. Make them smaller for younger children.

If you have younger children you can just have them jump from square to square. Don't use bean bags or other objects to throw into the squares. Make the hopscotch to fit their size.

Games Using Cups

 

1. Stack the Cups Bible Verse Review Game for Sunday School

What you will need:

Paper Cups and a permanent maker.

How to Play:

Before you start test to see how many cups can be stacked on top of each other and still stay standing. Stack the cups so that two bottoms are together and then two tops. The cups I used would only allow five cups before they became to tipsy. Before class write words from a Bible verse that you are memorizing on the cups so that when you stack them they are in order. Write the words so that they are right-side up when the cups are stacked.

You can also use this game to review the books of the Bible. Give each player or team a set of cups with the words on them. On the word "go" see which team can stack the cups in order first without any of the cups falling off.

2. Pass the Word Bible Verse Review Game for Sunday School

What you will need:

Chopsticks, paper or other small items, and cups.

How to Play:

Before class write words from the Bible verse or books of the Bible on small pieces of paper. Make a set for each team. Mix up the words in each set. Fold up the corners or slightly wrinkle the papers so they can be picked up with chopsticks. (Or you can write the words on small items such as bottle caps.)

In class give each child a set of chopsticks and divide your children into teams. Line up each team. Spread out the words in front of the first person in line of each team. The first child in line passes the words to the second person in line and so on until the word reaches the end of the line. The person at the end of the line puts the words in order to spell out the verse. Children can use only one hand to use their chopsticks to pick up the words and pass them. The team that has all the words in order first wins.

You can also play this game as a relay race having the children run up to the set of words, pick up a word with their chopsticks, and then run back with the words. When the first child returns the next child in line takes a turn.

Miscellaneous Games

 

1. Stack the Books of the Bible Review Game for Sunday School

What you will need:

Old books or cereal boxes, paper, tape, scissors, markers, etc.

How to play:

For each book of the Bible use a cereal box or skinnier box and write the name of a different book on each box. Use bigger boxes for the bigger books of the Bible and smaller ones for the smaller books. As your children learn the books have them stack the boxes to see how high they can make the stack. You can divide the children into two teams and have a competition between the teams, even offer a prize to the winning team. If you don’t want to use boxes, you can just use old books you have around the house and put fake covers on them. You can play other games with the boxes. Mix them up and see how fast they can put them in order. You can also make up relay races to see which team can place their boxes in order first. When your children have learned all the books have them set the boxes up like dominoes and watch them fall.

What you will need:

Six large dice or small blocks, dot stickers, and a marker

Preparation:

Before class decide what is the most important part of the Bible verse. Pick six words from the verse. Write the words on dot stickers and place each word once on all six dice. To make the game easier use a different color dot sticker for each word. Place all the dice in a plastic cup.

How to Play:

Children take turns trying to get all the words in order by throwing the dice. To play a child shakes up the dice in the cup and throws them out on the table. He puts the words in order to make the verse. The words that cannot be used to make the verse are placed back in the cup and he must shake them up again and throw them out. He then sees if any of the new words he has thrown will fit into the verse. Any dice that don't have the correct words are placed back in the cup, mixed up, and thrown again. The child keeps throwing until he makes the verse. The teacher keeps track of how many throws it took the child to make the verse. The child with the least amount of throws wins.
