1) Holy Rollers Bible Memory Game

You will need a small ball to play. Children and teacher sit in a circle. Teacher holds the ball and begins the game by saying the first word of the Bible memory verse, then rolls the ball to another person in the circle. That person says the next word in the verse, and then rolls the ball to another person in the circle. Play continues like this until the entire verse is recited. Players must roll the ball across the circle and not side-by-side, and be mindful to roll the ball to a different person each time.

2) It's KNOW-vember!

Here are a few KNOW verses to get you started:
