Play "We Will Serve the Lord" Build a House Craft Stick Game
What you will need: Craft Sticks, Markers, Tin Can, and Paper
How to make:
1. Before class write the words from the memory verse (one word per stick)on one end of each craft stick. Make enough crafts sticks so that you have at least one whole memory verse per child. You can also put the Bible verse reference on one stick. If you have children who are just learning to read, color code the words. For example, make all the "we" words red and all the "Lord" words green.
2. Print out some of the memory verse review house patterns. Color the pattern to match the color of the words you put on the craft sticks. Place the crafts sticks in a tin can so that the words are at the bottom of the can.
3. To play have the children sit in a circle in groups of five. Make sure you have enough crafts stick for the whole group. Show the children how to make a house shape with the sticks using just one of each word so that it spells out the memory verse. See the wall hanging example above. You can also use the Bible reference and put it across the middle of the house to form the bottom of the roof.
4. Start the game by having the child on your right pick a stick. If he does not already have that stick, he can place it on the floor in front of him. Keep going around the circle. If a child picks a stick that he already has, he puts it back in the can and tries again next turn. Keep going until someone completes the whole verse.
5. As the children pick words tell them to read the words on their sticks and tell them which words are missing to complete their verse or see if they can figure it out. By the time the game is over you and they will have said the verse at least ten times.
