Your preschoolers are learning their letters, so why not let them have fun hunting for ABC’s in a Bible story? This fun Bible game uses Bible story pictures to help your little ones learn about God’s great stories in the Bible and learn their letters, too!
It is so much fun to watch little children learn their ABC’s. And it’s even a bigger blessing to watch them learn about God’s wonderful stories in the Bible. Hunting for ABC’s in a Bible story is a great way to combine both activities.
For this fun Bible game for preschoolers, you will want to pick a Bible story that you would like to share. Here is a list of stories to choose from to get you started:
The Story of Creation
The Story of Adam and Eve
The Story of Noah and the Flood
The Tower of Babel
God Calls Abraham
Isaac Get Married
Jacob Tricks His Father
Jacob Dreams of a Ladder to Heaven
Joseph’s Coat of Many Colors
Pick one or more of these stories, then find one or more Bible story pictures that you know will really delight your children. Try to find pictures that have various objects in the background. Everything in the picture is “up for grabs” while hunting for ABC’s in a Bible story.
You can find a LOT of great Bible story pictures online by typing the title of the story into a search engine such as Google or Yahoo.
Next, print off at least TWO copies of the picture. One picture will be shown to your children while you tell the Bible story. The other pictures will be used to cut out the different objects that are found in the story.
You will also want a poster showing all the ABC’s. As a child finds an object in the picture, you will let him have the “cut out” picture and place it on the correct letter of the alphabet.
After telling the story, say to your children, “We are now going hunting for ABC’s in a Bible story!” Point out all the different objects that are in the story. Say their words and help the children figure out the beginning sound and letter of each object.
For example, I went online and found a great picture for the story of “Joseph and His Coat of Many Colors.” The picture I found has quite a few objects. Included are: Joseph, coat, sandals, shepherd’s staff, belt, birds, trees, sheep, grass and hills. All of these words give us the letters J, C, S, B, T, G and H. Woohoo!
Now, it’s your turn to pick a Bible story and find some great pictures so that your little ones can go hunting for ABC’s in a Bible story!
