Scripture Lady’s Bible Memory Verse Games: Bag It!


The Scripture Lady loves creating Bible memory verse games! Here is one called “Bag It!” to make memorizing Scripture fun.

“Would you like paper or plastic?”

The next time you’re asked this, make sure you say, “Paper, please,” then ask for the same number of bags to match the number of words found in your Bible memory verse.  After accomplishing these two steps, just follow the directions below to play the fun Bible memory verse game called “Bag It”.

Bible memory verse games will help your children hide God’s Word in their hearts and for this one you will need to do the following:

Once you have your paper grocery bags, on each one write out in big letters one word each from you memory verse.  I actually include one more bag for the reference of the verse.

Next, pick the same number of kids from your class to come up front where you proceed to place a bag over each of their heads in the correct order of the verse.  By the way, if you have a small class, you can have each bag contain 2 or 3 words at a time.  You will still have fun, but on a smaller scale.

Have the rest of the class recite the verse as they see it presented by the “Bag It” people.  Have them say it over and over several times in several different ways such as in a high voice or a low voice or as Mickey Mouse or as a really, really old person.  Once you see that the class is starting to memorize the verse, pat one of the kid’s heads as a cue for them to remove their bag.  Have the class say the verse again, but this time they will need to remember the word or words that were taken away.  Continue this progression until all the bags have been taken off.  The result should be a class who now knows their memory verse all because of some everyday grocery bags.

  • I don’t really got the idea, would you mind make a video for this game? thank you so much
    Gbu more and more

  • Fun idea! I only know one place that offers bags here in New Orleans but you could use boxes with the same concept. You could make your boxes reusable by writing the words on cardstock and attaching them to the box with some plasti-tac.

    Today I am putting my Bible verse words in left over plastic Easter eggs and letting the children go on a hunt. Once they find the words, they will place them on a pocket chart and arrange them in proper order.

  • I really liked the idea and even if I do not have the paper bags I can still use colorful paper using the same principles.
    I am also sure the kids will love this and at the same time make the learning easier for them.
