Craft: Scroll Memory Verses
Just like the Bible was written on scrolls back in Josiah’s time, you can ask the children to write the memory verse on a scroll. You would need to get tan or brown paper and then maybe tear and wrinkle it some. You can use dowel rods or any other kind of rod to help roll the scroll up. You will also want something to tie the two ends together. We also have a scroll die cut in the Preschool Resource Room that you can use for an easier option.
Make a bookmark to help children mark a special place in their Bibles. They could also make a bookmark to give to another person. The children can write the memory verse on their book-mark or other verses to help them remember important things about the Bible.
Game: Bible Tag
Group kids into 2 teams. Invite the kids to play “Bible Tag” and explain that the game is similar to “freeze tag.” When a player is tagged by someone from the other team, the player must freeze in place. Kids must tag their frozen teammate to free them, they must say “The Bible is God’s Word.” Tell the students that the team with the fewest frozen players when you call time is the winner for that round. You can play many rounds.

Game: The Book That Couldn’t Be Lost
One child will be “it” and will cover their eyes. Another child will take a Bible and hide it. When the child who is “it” gets closer to the Bible the rest of the class will clap faster and when they are far away they will clap slower. After playing a couple times talk about how over all the years people have tried to hide the Bible or say it is not true but we know that God’s Word could never be hidden and it is always true.
