Bible verse games are great for preschoolers too! Here is one on the Fruit of the Spirit called “Fruit Salad Upset.”
I love working with preschoolers because everything is new to them. They are learning so much! Their numbers, their ABC’s…and their fruits! Here is a fun Bible verse game for your preschoolers to help them learn more about the Fruit of the Spirit. Your little ones will love this game. Not only will they get to know their fruits better, but it will help them with their numbers too.
What you need to do:
Bible verse games are fun and for this one you will need to cut out and laminate the pictures of fruit, as well as the numbers, found in the links below. You will also want to laminate the “Fruit Salad Upset” chart. The only thing left to gather is some kind of plastic salad bowl that will hold your “fruit”. Finally, display the fruit cards on a table or pocket chart and place the numbers in a bucket.
How to play:
Tell the children you need their help in making a fruit salad. Explain that a fruit salad is yummy and very good for you. God gave us all sorts of different fruit. He also gave us the Fruit of the Spirit which is really good for you too. Ask a child to come up and pick a number out of the bucket. He should look at the number, show it to the rest of the children and then look on the “Fruit Salad Upset” chart to see which fruit matches the number. He then goes to the pocket chart and picks off the matching fruit card and then drops it into the salad bowel. The number card he chose is set to the side and his turn is over. The game continues until someone picks the number ten. If this happens, you shout, “Fruit Salad Upset!” and pop the bowel so that the fruit cards go flying out. The kids will love the surprise element. Ask the children to gather all the fruit cards and place them back on the pocket chart. Play the game all over again. See if you can make a whole fruit salad before you reach 10!
