Hallelujah Game!

Looking for a fun game to play as you review Bible memory verses with your children? Play the Hallelujah Game!

Supplies

– 16 Bible memory verse cards

– 1 game board for each child

– Stickers (One sticker of the same kind for each verse card and for each game board. Example: if you have three children, you will need four of each kind of sticker. One sticker for the memory verse card and one for each of your three children’s game boards.)

– Game pieces (Suggestions: raisins or nuts or small crackers or small blocks or buttons etc. If you use food for your game pieces, it is fun to enjoy the food after the game as a snack!!)

Preparing the Game

Put one sticker on each memory verse card.

Download and print the game board on cardstock.

Put a sticker in each square of each game board. (Each board will have the same stickers. Important! Put the stickers in a different order on each board.)

Idea: Put each game board in a plastic page protector. This will protect the game board from food crumbs and oils. It also makes it easy for the game board to be stored in a three ring Bible Time notebook in between playing the Hallelujah Game.

Why the Teddy Bear?

The Teddy Bear in this video is letting you know that the idea shared is great for little children too! If your children are not old enough to quote the Bible memory verses, you can say the verses while they listen. You may also like to make the game board with a 3×3 grid instead of a 4×4 grid.

As a young daughter my parents encouraged me to memorize Scripture verses. I memorized Isaiah 41:10 and it became one of my favorite verses.

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” Isaiah 41:10

As an adult I continue to treasure Isaiah 41:10. And I can say with confidence that God has always been faithful to His Word. Praise Him! He is worthy of all our trust.

Draw the Word

Draw the Word is an effective way to think about a Bible verse and memorize the Bible verse with your children.

Suggested Verses to Memorize

For Little Ones and Beyond
These memory verses are great for children ages 2 and up.

Topical Memory System

These memory verses are great for many children ages 10 and up. These verses are also great for adults.

Organize!

Give each child their own 3 ring notebook. After memorizing a new verse, have your children put their Draw the Word page into their notebook using page protectors.

You may want to include dividers in each notebook to help organize different groups of memory verses together. (Dividers were helpful for our family as we memorized verses found in the Topical Memory System.)

Review!

Refer back to the Draw the Word pages in your notebooks for Scripture memory review.

Who? What? Cards

Who? What? Cards offer a simple, fun and creative way to pray for family and friends with your children. These cards can be found in the S&D prayer resource, titled My Family, My Friends.

Cardstock!

When printing the Who? What? Cards we recommend using colored cardstock. The cards will be more durable and the color adds a touch of fun!

Pray Again!

Who? What? Cards can be used over and over again. After you have used the cards in prayer with your children, shuffle the cards before putting them away. The next time you pray together, the requests and names will be in a different order and therefore you will most likely be praying different requests for each person! Enjoy!

My Thank-You Book

Do you have a baby, toddler or preschooler in your family? Or, are you a grandmother who is blessed with little grandchildren? If so, this video is for you! On this video I share how to make a little book that you can use with your child or grandchild as you help him/her begin to learn how to talk to God in prayer focusing on thanksgiving.

How to Make This Book:

Take and print pictures of people, places and things in your child’s world. Put the pictures into a little photo book (search online for photo book using the words “plastic photo book for 4×6 pictures”). Or, print the pictures onto paper and then staple the pieces of paper together to make a little book. Include a front and back cover, as well as an introduction letter and Bible verse if you like! (See download.)

Picture Ideas:

PEOPLE: Daddy, Mommy, brothers and sisters PLACES: house, back yard, church, playground, library, swimming pool. THINGS: bed, blanket, clothes, various toys, cup, book, crayons, food, car.

Have Older Children?

You can use this idea with older children in your family too! Your older children may like to take the pictures for their book and put the book together themselves. They may like to include pictures of friends, teachers, neighbors and missionaries.

I am looking forward to hearing from you as you enjoy using a My Thank-You Book with your child or grandchild!

Come and See

On this video I am happy to introduce a new Bible study for you to enjoy with your children! This study encourages your children to “come and see” Jesus! It focuses on twelve Bible passages that share about Jesus’ life on earth.

When you are ready to use this Come and See Bible study with your children, you are welcome to use the download to print as many free copies as you will need for your family.

2 TIPS FOR DOING THIS STUDY

One Page: It may be helpful to give your children just one Bible Study Page at a time rather than the entire the Bible study at once. Each new Bible Study Page can be given to your children when you are ready to study another Bible passage together.

Time: Give yourselves plenty of time to enjoy each passage study. It may take a few days or even longer to complete all the steps in the study. Not because the steps are complicated, but because you will want to have time to savor God’s Word as you study it together.

Have Younger Children?

The recommended ages for this Bible study is 8 years old to adult. If you have children younger than 8, you can certainly encourage them to join you as you study with your older children! They can listen, watch and participate in the Bible study steps that they are ready for.

I am looking forward to hearing from you as you enjoy this study with your children! What were your children’s favorite Bible study steps? What questions did your children have concerning any of the Bible study steps? What is something you did to make this Bible Study time special in your home?

Printed Copy

If you would prefer to obtain a printed copy of Come and See it is available for purchase in the Daughters of Decision Shop.
