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.”

Ten Fun Group Activities for Bible Verse Memorization

4 Feb

Spin The Bottle

Mark an arrow on an empty plastic bottle. Kids sit in a circle with the bottle in the middle. Spin the bottle. Whoever the bottle lands on says the first word of verse. Spin again, that person says first and second words. Continue until the entire verse is said.

2.  Hide a Word

Use this activity with a large group. Write one word per piece of paper. Give out one piece of paper per child. The children chosen line up in front of the room (not in correct verse order).  The rest of the group works together to unscrambles the words by telling the kids to move places. Everyone says the verse together once it is in correct order. One child from the audience chooses someone to turn around so the verse cannot be seen. Say the verse. Continue with 1-3 people being chosen to turn around each time.

3.     Spider Web Verse

One child holds the end of a ball of yarn and throws the ball to someone in a circle. They say the next word in the verse and throw the ball to someone else. This continues until the verse is complete and a spider web has been formed.

4.     Who is. . . game

Call out different scenarios: Who is wearing tennis shoes? Who has a birthday this month? Who is wearing red? Each time a scenario is called, those who fit that scenario stand and say the verse together.

5.     Miniature Bible Verse

Write the bible verse as small as possible. Make copies of the verse and hide around the room. Give the kids magnifying glasses. They must search for the verse and then use the magnifying glass to read the verse.

6.     Bible verse art

Write the words randomnly on a piece of paper with a dot next to each word. Make a copy for each person. Have the kids connect the words starting with the first word in the verse. When completed, color the design made.

7.     Hot Potato

Sit in a circle. Pass a “hot potato” around the circle. This can be a bean bag, a potato or any small object. Play music. When the music stops, the person holding the hot potato must say the first word of the verse. Play continues. The next person holding the potato when the music stops must say the first two words. Play continues until the verse is completed.

8.     Memory Verse Mural

Cover the table with a large sheet of paper (butcher paper, bulletin board paper).  Write the words to the verse around the table. Have the kids draw symbols and pictures to illustrate the verse.

9.     Bible Verse Slide Show

Have each child write one word from the verse on a piece of paper. Have them hold their paper up and take a picture of them making a silly face. Make a slideshow with the pictures in order having the kids practice the verse while they look at the slideshow.

10.Balloon Verse Hunt

Blow up helium balloons attaching a long string to each. Write, on index cards, the verse one word per card. Attach a card to each balloon. Let the balloons go in the room. Have the kids work together to put the verse in order.
