How to play this Bible memory verse game:

There are 2 ways to play this game.

Number One: Community Workers

Gather together some community worker costumes and hats. You can make your own or you can purchase some costumes from a local party store that might be near you. Look for costumes for community workers such as police officers, firefighters, doctors, nurses, grocery clerks, construction workers and waiters or waitresses. The more props you use, the more fun your children will have.

Place all the costumes in a bucket from which you will pull. Have a child come up and dress them in one of the costumes. Let’s say you choose a police officer’s uniform. Let the child stand in front of the rest of the class. Then say the following:

This is Jake (or whatever the child’s name is). He is a police officer. He works hard to keep us safe.

Let’s tell Jake that God loves him by telling him Psalm 145:9 – The Lord is good to all!

Make sure you invite the children to say Psalm 145:9 with you.

Help the child take off the costume. Pick a new child to put on a new costume and follow the same form of play.

Number Two: All Around the World

Gather together some colorful pictures of children all over the world. It would be cute to possibly turn the pictures into “popsicle” puppets by simply adding a popsicle stick or tongue depressor to the bottom of the picture. Place all the pictures in a basket or box so that the popsicle sticks are sticking up.

Ask a child to come up and pull out a “puppet.” Then say the following:

This is Akiko. (Choose a name that you believe reflects the nationality of the child’s picture.) Akiko is from Japan.

Let’s tell Akiko that God loves her by telling her Psalm 145:9 – The Lord is good to all!

Make sure you invite the children to say Psalm 145:9 with you.

That’s it! This Bible memory verse game will provide your preschoolers with many opportunities to learn and recite Psalm 145:19.
