Books of the Bible Border (Learning Tool and Room Decoration!)

One of my ministry goals for 2014 is to have all the kids in the ministry memorize the books of the Old Testament.  We’ve been using a few different ways to get kids acquainted with the books of the Bible, including this super fun Books of the Bible Border.

Here’s a closer look:

Basically, whenever we break up into small groups for learning stations (read more about learning stations here), I make these Books of the Bible coloring pages available at one station.  Kids are encouraged to color them very carefully and when they are finished, I laminate them and hang them in a line around the room, border style.

I get the books of the Bible coloring pages both at Ministry to Children and Kids Bible Worksheets.  I personally like the Ministry to Children pages better because there a bit of the story on the pages as well, but they only go up to Isaiah right now.

We usually do 2-3 books a week, but the project seemed to be stagnating a little while back, so we shook things up a bit.   When the kids arrived, they saw this:

At every seat was a book of the Bible coloring page and a box of crayons (we keep our crayons in soap boxes).  The kids were encouraged to color as we did our opening activities and reviewed the previous week’s lesson.

So far, we are up to Nehemiah and the kids are still loving it.  Each week, we read the border together as a class and I encourage the kids to refer to it whenever they are trying to find a specific book in the Bible.

  1. I’m the head teacher over the 5 & 6 year olds, and we are doing the same thing. I have pinned various ideas on my Sunday school board, and added yours to it. Thanks for sharing on Tuesdays With a Twist.

  2. Very fun, Joyce! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. This is such a great idea! It would even work to have kids make this kind of border for a play room at home.
