Quick Tip Tuesday

Need an easy, no prep activity for a time filler or transition?

Play “Hangman” using a Bible Verse or phrase from your lesson!

Utilize a dry erase board or chalkboard to make it large enough for the whole class to participate. Allow the kids to take turns guessing letters.

Disclaimer: If the traditional “hangman” game would be offensive to use at your church…use the same premise, but see if they can guess the verse or phrase before you draw a regular stick figure with a silly face…it doesn’t have to be attached to a traditional hangman drawing to be fun!

Bible Verse Puzzle Game

Items Needed:

  • 1 colored poster board per team (each team should have a different color)
  • Write Bible verse on each poster
  • Cut into large puzzle pieces

Instructions:

  • Before class begins, hide puzzle pieces around room
  • Divide kids into teams
  • Tell each team what color puzzle pieces they will be hunting for
  • Remind kids that the “Red Team” can only get RED pieces…the “Yellow Team” can only get YELLOW, etc. If they see another teams’ puzzle pieces, just stay quiet & leave it alone!
  • On the sound of “GO!” the teams should hunt for their assigned color pieces & work together to put their puzzle together.

First team to find all their pieces & put their puzzle together wins!

Tips and Tricks:

  • Assign an adult helper or older child to each team to help aid in putting puzzle together, if needed (especially for preschoolers)
  • Tell the kids how many pieces they will be hunting for
  • Make each poster as similar as possible…especially having same number of pieces
  • For younger students, make sure puzzle pieces are not too hard to find!
