This project is so simple, I’m not sure it even qualifies as a craft, but it’s been a great activity for our Children’s Church program, so I thought I’d share. I’m always looking for new ways for kids to learn and review the books of the Bible, and I’ve found sometimes, simple is best.
What You Need:
- Set of notecards (unlined)
- Crayons or markers (several colors)
- Ziploc bags
What You Do:
- Using one color crayon per set, write out the books of the Bible on notecards (one book per card). Place the set inside a ziploc bag.
- If you’d like to start slow (we did), only write 5 books of the Bible to begin with and add another book each week.
- This is a terrific opening activity or a good activity for those “last 5 minutes”.
- Having different colored sets keeps the cards from getting mixed up with one another. Even if kids are sitting very close to one another, the sets are easy to sort out because the lettering is different colors.
Keep all the sets of cards in one giant ziploc bag and keep in the classroom.
Once kids become more familiar with the order of the books of the Bible, you could make sorting the cards a race or you could neighbors check each other’s work.
