Spoon Books of the Bible Activity for Kids

Spoon Books of the Bible Activity for Kids

You’ll Need:

Directions:

  • Write the name of the Old Testament Books of the Bible on one color of spoons. 
  • Next write the Books of the New Testament on a different color of spoons.
  • Line up your spoons to keep them uniform and gently press down into the Styrofoam (make sure you leave the plastic on).  I wrote with a color coordinating Sharpie Old Testament & New Testament before the spoons for that section of the Bible began.
  • Now remove them and using the sharpie color around the holes you have created. This will help the kids be able to see the “right” holes instead of making new ones each time they do the activity.
  • We store this in a large ziplock bag in a plastic tote.

  1. Is there a game to this? Do you just pull the spoons out and mix them up and have the students put them back in the correct order?

    1. The "game" is just having the kids put the spoons back in order. It is an activity solely to help kids learn the order for the books of the Bible. Although I am sure you could make it into whatever activity fit your group =)
