The first part of Ephesians 4:32 says, “Be kind and loving to each other…” This Bible verse is perfect for preschoolers to learn. Here is a fun Bible memory verse activity to help your little ones know that God wants them to be kind and loving to all they meet.
Do your children know that God wants them to be kind and loving to each other? Being kind and loving to all will help your kids go far in life. But more importantly, being kind and loving is what God calls each of us to do so that those around us might be drawn into a relationship with Jesus.
Today, I want to share with you a fun Bible memory verse activity that I call, “Knock, Knock! Who’s There?” This fun Bible game will help your little ones memorize Ephesians 4:32 and help them learn how to be kind and loving to everyone they meet.
What to prepare for “Knock, Knock! Who’s There?”:
For this Bible memory verse activity, you will need a door that you have easy and safe access to.
Next, you will need to gather some different kinds of hats. These hats can reflect different workers in your community such as a police officer’s hat, or nurse’s cap or fireman’s hat. You could also include some more generic hats like a baseball cap or a lady’s party hat or even a clown hat. Pick hats that are fun and engaging for the kids. Place the hats in a basket outside the door.
You are now ready to play the Bible memory verse activity.
How to play “Knock, Knock! Who’s There?”:
First, you will need to introduce the first part of Ephesians 4:32 to your children, which says, “Be kind and loving to each other…” A great way to do this is to use my Bible verse song called “Be Kind.”
Check out the sample video of this song:
After you have introduced Ephesians 4:32, tell the children the following:
Boys and girls, I am so thankful that God tells us to be kind and loving to each other. When we are kind and loving, we get to show God’s great love.
Let’s play a game to help us learn that God wants us to be kind and loving to everyone we meet.
I am going to go behind this door. I am going to knock on the door and say, “Knock, knock!” and then I want you to say, “Who’s there?” I will then tell you who I am and then you get to open the door.
After sharing the above dialogue, go behind the door and put on one of the hats. Let’s say you choose a nurse’s cap. You will say, “Knock, knock!” The children should say, “Who’s there?” You will say, “I am Nurse Susan (or whatever name you would like to say). Can I come in?” The child will open the door and you will say the following:
Hello! I am Nurse Susan and God has told me to be kind and loving to all that I meet.
Now encourage the child to say, “Thank you for being kind and loving, Nurse Susan! Have a good day working at the hospital.”
You will then go out the door and play the activity all over again with a different hat.
The children will have lots of fun opening the door and being surprised by the different characters you portray. They will also have lots of opportunity to recite Ephesians 4:32 and learn the importance of being kind and loving to each other.
