"If You Had To Choose?" Printable Bible Card
Game for Groups

Bible Card GameObject of the game: Is to collect the most cards by guessing correctly if players picked the option you picked or didn't pick.

Preparation: Print out the card patterns onto card stock and cut them apart - Numbered Cards (PDF Pattern), Option Cards (PDF Pattern), Option Cards 2 (PDF Pattern), Option Cards 3 (PDF Pattern), Option Cards 4 (PDF Pattern), and Blank Cards (PDF Pattern) (You can make up your own cards or have your children add cards).

Have your children sit in a circle and place the Option Cards in the middle of the circle face down. Give each child a Number 1 Card and a Number 2 Card.

How to Play:

1. Children take turns reading an Option Card and picking an option.

2. The first child reads an Option Card and lets the other players decide which option they would pick without discussing their choice. If a child picks option one, he places a Number 1 Card on the table in front of him face down. If he picks option two, he places a Number 2 Card face down in front of him on the table.

3. After all the children have placed a card on the table the reader tells which option he picks and explains why he picked the option. Then he guesses if more children in the game picked the option he picked, or more picked the other option. The other players turn over the cards on the table. If the child is correct, he gets to keep the option card. If he is wrong, the card is discarded. The player to his right then takes his turn. The child who acquires the most cards at the end of the game wins.

 

Church Picnic Bible Scavenger Hunt

Bible Scavanger HuntThis scavenger hunt is designed for outdoors and is great for church picnics. People of all ages will enjoy figuring out the clues and scavenging for the objects needed to win.

Before the activity print out the scavenger hunt clues and make copies. Print out the answers to the clues and store them out of sight.

Break your players into teams with an even amount of younger and older people together. Have the team pick a team captain. Explain the rules of the game and then give each team a KJV Bible, a paper grocery bag to store the objects it finds, and several plastic Ziploc bags to keep small objects.

Rules and Instructions:

1. Read the Bible verses and fill in the missing words to find out what object you will be looking for. If you don't know the answer, you can look it up in your Bible.

2. The object you are looking for may be only part of the missing word. For example, the missing word may be boxes. If the "es" on boxes is filled in and not part of the blank line ( _____es), you should only look for the missing part of the word, which would be only one box.

3. The object you are looking for may be a combination of two missing words from two different Bible verses.

4. Also, the missing word or object to be found in the verse does not have to be taken literally (exactly how it is used in the verse). For example, the word could be frog, which is referring to a real live frog, but you could use a picture of a frog. However, you may not draw the picture yourself. You cannot create the objects. You must find them already created.

5. Do not pick any plants that are alive.

6. You do not have to find the objects in order.

The team that finds the most objects at the end of the allotted time wins.

Names of Jesus Charades

Print out the list of "Names for Jesus" Page 1 (PDF Pattern), Page 2 (PDF Pattern), Page 3 (PDF Pattern).

Write each name for Jesus on an index card with its corresponding number. Break your group up into teams. Divide the cards evenly between the groups. Each group should pick one person to be the person who acts out the words for his team. Each team gets three minutes to guess as many words as they can. The team member who is acting out the words may pick the words he wants to act out for his team. He can pass on certain words if the other members of his team are not able to guess the word or he thinks it is too hard to guess. After each team has had three minutes to guess as many words as they can. Count up the number of words that have been guessed by each team. The team that has guessed the most words wins.
