3 in a row memory verse game

Sometimes it can be tricky to come up with interesting ways to teach and recap on memory verses we want the children to learn.  Here's an idea we will be using this Sunday as we revisit a memory verse about worship!

Step 1:  Write out your memory verse in a grid (as far as possible!).  You may need to split the Bible reference into several different squares or group words together so that it fits into the number of spaces you have.  Give the children some time to memorize where the words are!

Step 2:  Cover each word with some post it notes (I needed 3 layers for each space so the words didn't show through).

Step 3:  Split the children into two teams and give each team a different colour pen.  Get teams to take turns in choosing a space and saying which word should be under the post it.  If they are correct, they can circle the word in their team colour.   They can discuss answers in their team but a different person must speak each time.

Step 4:  The first team with three words in a row is the winner!
