Welcome to Scripture Lady’s Free Bible Memory Verse Games for Kids
Psalm 119:11 says, “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” What a profound verse to encourage every Christian to memorize God’s Word. And it can start with our children. Coming up with ways to memorize Bible verses is one of my favorite things to do. My ministry actually began around the desire that my own two girls would know and love the Bible. Our first daughter had a very difficult time learning her verses for the local AWANA club that we were a part of. She would come home in tears having “failed” to recite her verses to her teacher. Not wanting my daughter to fall behind, I began putting her Bible verses to music. This became the key for my little girl to breeze her way through AWANA and to receive all the Bible verse awards the club offered. My motto became, “If you sing it, it will stick!”
I am still a huge proponent of memorizing Bible verses through song, but there are also lots of other ways to get your kids to hide God’s Word in their hearts. And this page will be dedicated to creative Bible memory verse games.
Some of our favorite Bible memory verse games include:
“Crazy Stand Ups” – Memorizing by wrote is very difficult for children, so why not add a little fun to it? Pick your Bible verse to memorize and then gather your children together. Now command all those who had pancakes for breakfast to stand up and say the verse together. Depending on the size of the group, you may have 2 or 3 stand and recite their verse. Continue giving other commands such as stand up if you are wearing socks, stand up if you are wearing red, or stand up if your birthday is June. Have a long list of commands ready to go and keep the children standing up and down until they have learned the verse.
“Surprise Sounds” – Say the following to your children: “Let’s memorize and say our Bible verse in a Mickey Mouse voice!” or “Let’s say our verse like someone who is very tired,” or “Let’s say our memory verse like someone who has a cold…Achoo!” Your kids will love saying their verses this way. Let them come up with some different voices as well.
“Be joyful because you have hope. Be patient when trouble comes and pray at all times.”
