Light Bible Verse Review Games

Light Bible Verse Review Game

1. Before class print out large Christmas light shapes onto colorful paper. Write one word of the Bible verse on each paper Christmas light. Make several sets. (Patterns available to members on The Resource Room.)

2. Tape long lengths of ribbon on the wall. The paper lights will be taped to these ribbons during the game to make a string of lights. If you have very young children who cannot read, write the Bible verse in large letters on the board or poster board so they will be able to see the complete verse when they play the game. In class break your children up into teams.

3. Give each team a set of lights and some tape. On the word go the teams should try to tape all the lights in order on the ribbon to spell out the verse as fast as they can. The team that finishes first wins. (Problems Printing? )

If you have very young children, you can play an easier game. Hide all the paper Christmas lights in the room. Have your children look for them. When a child has found a light have him sit down. When all the children are sitting go over the verse, word for word. Have your children look to see if they have the word you are discussing. The child who has that word can come up and tape it to the ribbon.

 

String of Lights Bible Verse Review Game

1. Print out enough large Christmas light patterns to write one word of the verse on each light.

2. Make several sets.

3. Divide your children up into teams and tape one paper light on the chest of each child and on the word go have them get in order to spell out the verse holding hands to form a string of Christmas lights. The team that has all the words in order and is all holding hands first wins.
