After several weeks of studying
the books of the Bible and their themes, this game is
intended to reinforce what the children have learned.
What you need: Cork board, push
pins, small flags* in two colors, Bible names,
What you do: Write the names of the
Bible on strips of paper and pin them to the cork board to cover it.
How to Play: Divide class into
teams. Each team is given their set of colored flags. First child on the team is
blindfolded, spun around and placed in front of the cork board. Have them place
a flag with a push pin into the cork board so they pin a Bible name. Whichever book he or she
pins, he or she has to say something about that book, for example, if the book is
Deuteronomy, he or she might say, the health laws, or clean and unclean animals.
If the book is John, they might say, the ministry of Jesus, or the parables of Jesus. If the book is Revelation, they might say, the last
days. The child that is 'up' may also request help from their teammates.
If the team that is up is able to answer correctly, they leave
their colored flag on the board and play passes to the next team. If the team is
unable to correctly answer, the team removes their flag. Play passes to the next
