I discovered these suggestion in this article. I'm always looking for new strategies to teach Scripture to kids!
1. Bible Ball – You can use this game to learn the books of the Bible, Kings of Israel, etc. Have your kids sit in a circle with you. One person starts with the ball. If you were doing the books of the Bible they would say, “Genesis”, and then pass it to whoever they wanted to, and that person would have to say “Exodus”, and they would pass it and so on.
2. Scripture Scavenger Hunt – Take notecards, write a different scripture reference on each one and hide them in strategic places. The children go searching together, and take turns finding a card. When they find a card they get one point for finding it, and two points if they can recite the scripture that is written on the card. At the end each child’s points are tallied, and we usually give everyone a sweet treat as a prize .
3. Sundae Sunday and The Story of God -Make a tradition on Sundays called Sundae Sunday! Before bedtime we gather together as a family and sing worship songs, and read through a lesson of The Story of God. You can download it here. We then pray together and have Ice Cream Sundaes!!
4. Nightly Devotional Time - Two great books we have found to read with small children are Goodnight Warrior and Jesus Storybook Bible. With our oldest son, we just had him start reading through the Bible when he was 8. A really great family devotional is 24 Family Ways by Clay Clarkson.
