Bible Memory Activity: Hay in a Manger

19 Dec

Day 19: 25 Days of Christmas Ideas

Help your kids learn a Christmas scripture with this fun activity.

The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel- which means “God with us.”
Matthew 1:23


Box similar to a shoebox, paper, pen, scissors

Preparation: Write the Bible verse on the paper. Cut the verse into strips of paper to resemble pieces of hay. Place the hay into the box (the manger.)

Go over the memory verse with the children.

Have each child draw a piece of “hay” out of the “manger.” Work together to put the verse (printed on the hay) in order. Read it together out loud.
