Sticker Verses

Most children like stickers and they can be a great addition to Bible memory verse cards!

Sticker Verses

Suggested ages: 1 and up

Years ago, I began to put stickers on some of our daughters’ Bible memory verse cards. These stickers did not necessarily have anything to do with the meaning of the verse, but they added color and something fun to look at while memorizing and reviewing the verses!

We began to call these memory verses “Sticker Verses” and the name “stuck!” To this day, we refer to those beginning memory verses as ‘sticker verses’ and our daughters can still identify specific memory verses by the accompanying sticker. 

Would you like to use “Sticker Verses” with your children?

If so, prepare a memory verse card for each of your children, including cards for any babies in your family!

Babies grow fast and will soon be ready to hold their own card. They can begin to memorize the verse even before they start talking, and by planning ahead you will have memory verse cards ready for them.

Use lined or blank index cards, blank business cards or blank flash cards. Add an identical sticker to each child’s card per verse.

If you are new to memorizing verses with your children and would like a list of suggested verses to help you get started, take a look at the above download.

I hope you and your children will enjoy hours of fun as you memorize God’s Word together!

“Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.” Jeremiah 15:16 (KJV)

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.

Introducing a New Bible Verse to Your Children

Are you ready to memorize a new Bible verse with your children? Would you like three simple ways to introduce the verse? If so, this post is for you!

3 Simple Ways to Introduce a Memory Verse

 Suggested Ages: All Ages

1. Read:

Read the chosen memory verse from the Bible. Doing this will help your children see that the verse comes from the Word of God.

2. Talk:

Talk about what the verse is saying. Answer any questions your children have about the verse.

3. Write

Write the verse on a card for each child. Index cards work great for this. Decorate the verse cards with a sticker if you would like. Give each child their verse card.

BONUS! Tips for Memorizing the Verse!

-MEMORIZE the verse together. (When our daughters were young I decided to have their memory verses be my memory verses too! This worked very well.)

-REVIEW the memory verse after you have memorized it together!! And keep reviewing the verse together so that it will not be forgotten.

Match the Mix

Are you ready for another game to enjoy as you review Bible Memory verses with your children? 

Play Match the Mix!

Suggested Ages: 5 to Adult

The Match the Mix game cards are super easy to make and the game is fun to play!

Match the Mix!

Supplies: 12 small identical cards, pen or marker (Optional: 12 identical stickers)

Make Cards

1. Choose six of your children’s Bible memory verses.

2. Write the six Bible memory verse references on six cards. One reference per card. Do this again. This will give you two cards of each Bible reference.

3. Place identical stickers on the back of each card if you’d like, or leave the back of the cards blank. 

Play

1. Mix up the 12 cards. Lay the cards out on a table, Bible reference side down.

2. Take turns turning over two cards. If the cards do not match, the person turns the cards back over and it is the next person’s turn. 

3. If the cards match, everyone says the related Bible verse together. The person who turned over the two matching cards puts the matching set beside him.

4. Continue until all the cards have been matched and all the verses have been said. Everyone can then count their card sets to see how many matches they made. 

That’s it!!

Enjoy playing Match the Mix with your children as you review Bible verses together!

Variations

Make another set of 12 cards to review 6 more memory verses. 

Have older children? Make a set of 16 game cards using 8 Bible memory verses.

Psalm 37:31 Flip Book

Looking for a fun, easy, hands-on craft to enjoy with your children as you memorize a Bible verse together?

Make a Psalm 37:31 Flip Book!

Suggested Ages: 5 – 10

(If your children are old enough they can make their own flip book while they watch you make yours.)

These books can be made using any Bible memory verse. Collect a few supplies, gather your children and have fun!

FOUR EASY STEPS!

Supplies: 7 Index Cards, Stickers, Stapler, Markers

1. Staple

Staple seven index cards together on the left hand side of the index cards to create a book.

2. Fold

Go to the front of the book and fold back each page along the line of staples. Fold the right hand bottom corner of the back page to the front of the card and then re-fold the corner to the back of the card. Fold the right hand corner of the next page. Make this corner fold a bit bigger. A small piece of the back page will show.

3.Stickers

Put a sticker on the inside corner of each fold. Add more stickers for decoration if you like.

4. Write

Write the Bible reference on the first page and the last page of the book. Divide the words found in your verse into five sections. Write a section of words from your verse in order on the five inside pages.

That’s it!

Have fun using the Bible Verse Flip Book as you say your chosen Bible memory verse with your children!

Variations!

Use cards of other sizes and colors. Pre-cut cards are great! There are many choices online. Or, make cards by cutting cardstock paper with a paper cutter.

Instead of using stickers, use glue or washi tape to hold down the folded corners. Also, your children may enjoy decorating the pages with crayons, markers or pens.

Ideas!

Bible Time Basket: Keep your children’s completed Bible Verse Flip Books in your Bible Time Basket. The flip books will be easy to find when you are ready to “flip and say” memory verses together during Bible Time.

Flip Book Collection: Your children may enjoy making more flip books using other memory verses. If so, they will be creating their own Bible Verse Flip Book collection. 

Share!

Share a picture of your children’s Bible Verse Flip Books with me! it would be delightful to see your children’s work!

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.

Scripture Memory Placemats

Are you looking for another way to be consistent as you enjoy memorizing and reviewing Scripture verses with your children?

Try Scripture Memory Placemats!

Suggested Ages: 6 – Adult

These placemats are simple to make and easy to use. This post will share the supplies you will need and how to make and use the placemats.

Supplies

– Plastic or vinyl placemats (one for each family member)
– Packaging tape
– Clear plastic page protectors (one for each family member)
– Scissors

How to Make 

Tape a plastic page protector onto each placemat leaving the right hand side of the page protector open. (You may want to carefully cut off the slim edge of each page protector that has the punched holes in it.)

How to Use 

Write or print your chosen Bible memory verse on an 8 ½” x 11” piece of paper. Make a copy for you and each of your children. (Idea! Use Draw the Word memory verse pages.)

Have each person slide their prepared memory verse page into their page protector on the placemat. (These page protectors help protect the memory verse pages from inevitable spills and crumbs at the table.)

Have each of your children place their completed Scripture Memory Placemat at their place on your table. Each time you all sit down to eat, your Bible memory verse will be there, ready for you to read or review together!

When your children are ready to memorize a new Bible verse, have them remove their memory verse page from their Scripture Memory Placemat and then put in a new memory page! (You may like to have your children put their former memory verse page into their own three ring Scripture Memory Notebook for further review.)

Dad’s Scripture Memory Placemat

If you and your children make memory verse pages or Draw the Word pages while your husband is working, each time a new page is completed, copy one of your children’s pages for your husband’s Scripture Memory Placemat. This can be a highlight for each child as their page is chosen for Dad to use at the table.

Scripture Memory Tablecloth

Use a clear plastic tablecloth, instead of placemats! Have your children slip their memory verse page or Draw the Word page under the plastic table cloth at their place. (Thank-you, Kim for sharing this great idea!)
