Have you ever got a piece of gum stuck on the bottom of your shoe or even worse, in your hair? Ugh! It’s awful! Well, ABC (already been chewed) gum doesn’t always have to end in a disaster. It can actually create quite a bit of fun.
“Don’t Get Stuck” is a great Bible memory verse activity that you can play with any Bible verse. Just follow the directions and your kids will be on their way to hiding God’s amazing Word in their hearts and minds.
Here’s what you do: Pick a Bible verse that you and your children have worked on in the past, but need to review. Let’s say you pick Romans 3:23: All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. This verse has eleven words in it. This means you will need to gather 14 paper lunch bags. Place one word found in the verse written on an index card inside each bag in random order. In the 3 remaining bags bible verse christmas, place some ABC gum in a used wrapper. Number the bags on the outside, 1 through 14. You are now ready to play the game.
Divide your class into 2 teams. Have the first team pick a number. They pick the bag of the number they chose. If it has a word from the Bible verse inside, they will take it out and display it on a board or a table. They then have 10 seconds to decide what they believe the verse is. If they do not guess correctly, the next team gets to pick a new number and repeats the process of guessing. If a team picks a bag that contains ABC gum, they lose a turn. The first team to guess the Bible verse is the winner and each winner gets a piece of NBC (not been chewed) gum.
Note: the bags can be reused to play this game with another verse, but of course you may have to add or subtract to the number of bags according to how many words are in the verse.
