Memory Verse Games
It is so important for children of all ages to get into the habit of memorizing passages from the Bible. Hiding God’s word in our heart is not only a command, but important for practical living. How can we follow obey God if we do not know what he wants. How can we tell other’s about God’s love when we don’t have examples. How can we share how someone can be saved and live with God forever in Heaven if we don’t know about Salvation. Since practice makes perfect, kids need lots of practice. We have a variety of fun, a hands on Memory Verse Games to make learning any Bible verse fun and easy. These bible verse games are perfect for kindergartners, grade 1, grade 2, grade 3, grade 4, garde 5, and grade 6 students.

Bible Verse Games
Help kids practice any Bible verse with these fun, hands on memory verse games. These Bible verse games are intended for any age kids that can read – so from 1st grade through 6th grade and up.
Practice makes perfect! Here are 7 really fun, hands on activities to help kid review memory verses.
Puzzle Review Game
For this bible verse review game you will need complete puzzles. I recommend getting them for a quarter at a garage sale or at the Target dollar section. We find the 24-48 piece puzzles to be just right.
Complete the puzzle and flip it over. Then write one (or two) words per piece to fit the entire memory verse on the puzzle pieces. Store in a ziplock bag to help kids continue to practicing.
Domino Memory Game
Print a word of your desired bible verse per label (we use Avery 8160). Now stick the labels each on a domino making sure there is no overlap on at least one side so that they will not have trouble standing up.
Kids love lining the dominoes up to make the verse and getting to knock them down when they are done!
Lego Bible Verse Review
Create a block of Lego pieces like above. Make the top line blank so kids will know how wide the block is suppose to be. Now using a sharpie put one word on each Lego piece.
Kids will need to put together the memory verse word by word.
Note: We use miscellaneous Legos we find at garage sales.
Index Card Memory Verse Game
Write one word of your memory verse on an index card. Continue until you have written all the words. Now leave a pile of the words (all mixed up) next to a line of masking tape on the floor.
Kids will need to put the index cards in order from beginning to the end along the masking tape line.
This is a fun, cooperative activity for kids.
Post it Memory Game
This super easy to set-up game is a favorite with kids! Just write one word per post it note and stick on the wall in random order.
Kids will re-stick the post it notes on the wall to put the bible verse in order.
Roll it Bible Verse Game
For this memory verse game we identified the six most common words used and slide each of those word in the side of the cube. Now type the verse and leave blank lines where the six most common words appear. (I suggest making the verse large enough so that you will fit in 2-4 copies of the verse per page)
Kids will take turns rolling the dice and writing the word they rolled onto one of the blank lines. Kids continue until the verse is complete. You can also have kids complete this activity more cooperatively by allowing kids to all add the word that is rolled by anyone.
White Board Dash
This is a fun bible verse game to play with two teams.
- teams will have a memory verse in front of them with mostly blank lines
- teams can do the same verse or different ones
- you can use one white board with a line down the middle or two white boards with one board per team
To play, teams form a line and one at a time team members run to the front to add one word to the board. They run back and the next team member runs up to add another. The game continues until one team finishes their review memory verse.
