Are you interested in an activity that will help your child memorize a Bible verse while giving them an opportunity to stretch their legs and move about?

Play “Hide It! Find It!”
Suggested Ages: 2-8

1. Write:

Write Genesis 1:1 or a Bible verse of your choice on a card if you have not already done so.

2. Hide

Hide the Memory Verse Card (MVC) in a room of your house while your child is not looking. For example, under a couch pillow with a piece of the card peeking out.

3. Look

Have your child then come into the room and look for the card.

4. Find and Say:

When your child finds the MVC, express excitement and then say the verse. Remember to say the Bible reference before and after you say the verse. Your child can join you in saying the verse if they are able.

5. Again!

Hide and find the memory verse card again! And again!

(Note: When you have more than one memory verse card, you can hide the cards all at once and then your child can find each one. Say the verses one by one as they are found or say all of the verses after all the cards are collected.)


Play “Hide It! Find It!” as part of a simple Bible Time with your child. Follow three simple steps:

1. SING: Sing a song to the Lord.
2. BIBLE: Enjoy “Hide It! Find It!” following the directions above.
3. PRAY: Talk to God in prayer.

“Hide It! Find It!” is a great activity to enjoy with the family after you have created multiple Bible memory verse cards. (If siblings are participating in this activity, it is a good idea to assign how many cards each person can find so that your youngest child has the opportunity to find cards along with your older children.)
