In 2014 The LEGO Movie became a box office hit as families everywhere clamored to go see the film that ended up grossing over $469.1 million around the world.

The sequel, The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, is arriving in theaters this weekend and is bound to be another smash hit.

Taking kids interest and weaving in a Gospel message is a great way to connect with children while presenting truth in a tangible way. Below is a free memory verse activity that uses LEGO to teach the importance of 1 Corinthians 3:11.

Building Block Bible Verse Activity

Main Point: Jesus is our foundation.
Verse: 1 Corinthians 3:11 (NIV)
Time: About 15-20min
Supplies: Building Block Bible Verse Activity Sheet

Say: “Raise your hand if you love LEGO’s (Wait for response). I love them as well! These building blocks are amazing as you can create anything you want out of them.

“If I built a tower out of LEGO’s I could make it incredibly tall as long as the structure had a strong supportive base. This is called a foundation. Does anybody know what that word means? (Wait for response). A foundation is the strongest structure that the building is built onto. If you have a weak foundation, a building might collapse. But if you have a strong foundation, the building will stay strong.”

“The Bible tells us that as Christians we have a strong foundation, his name is Jesus. Listen to what 1 Corinthians 3:11 has to say: ‘For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid which is Christ Jesus.’ Wow! No matter what we add about our knowledge, understanding, or faith of God, the most important thing to remember is that Jesus is our strong foundation.”

Hand out copies of the Building Block Bible Verse Activity Sheet (Downloadable at the bottom of the page). Allow kids time to cut out the bricks. After, have kids mix up the bricks and time them to see how long It takes to put the Bible verse in order. Help out as needed.

After say: “You all did a fantastic job with that activity. Why don’t we say the memory verse together one more time? ‘For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid which is Christ Jesus. – 1 Corinthians 3:11′. The next time you play with your LEGO’s I hope you remember that our strongest foundation is our Lord, Jesus.”
