Looking for a simple and fun Bible activity to enjoy with your little child? 

Play “Jump! Jump!”

Suggested Ages: 2 – 8

Choose a Bible verse your child is memorizing or a Bible memory verse you would like to review.

 

Idea 1
Tell your child that you are going to say a Bible verse. When he hears you say the Bible verse reference he is to make a BIG jump! Then he is to stand still and listen to you say the Bible verse until you come to the end of the verse. When you say the Bible verse reference again, he is to make another BIG jump.
 

 

Idea 2
This is a little harder for very little children, but it is great for encouraging listening and concentration skills. Choose a word in the Bible verse. Tell your child that you are going to say a Bible verse. Tell him to listen for the word you have chosen from the verse. When he hears you say the chosen word in the Bible verse, he is to make a BIG jump and then stop and listen to the rest of the verse!
 
 

Idea 3
Keep this idea for when your child knows the Bible memory verse quite well. Say the Bible verse with the Bible reference. Have your child make a big jump each time you say the Bible reference and a little jump for each word in the verse. This idea is great for helping to get “wiggles” out during Bible Time!
 

 

Idea 4
When your child can say the Bible memory verse without any help, have him say the verse and you can jump! You could choose to jump for each Bible verse reference, for the words of the verse or for both!
