Gears Craft and Bible Verse Review Game

Gear Bible Craft Activity and Bible Verse Review Game from www.daniellesplace.com


Older children make simple gears out of foam tubes and thumbtacks. After perfecting their creations they use them to play a Bible verse review game. Glue a circle with words from the Bible verse on the second gears. On the word "go" children move their gears to line up each word of the verse in order with the first gear. The child who spells out the verse first wins. You can make a rule that they can only move the gears in one directions, or they can move them any way they want depending on hard you want to make the game.

For directions and a video on how to make this craft and activity go to the Educational Science Crafts Page.
