Creation Word Search
One foundation of the Bible is the creation story. For this activity, kids need to decipher clues to determine which words to find. Have them read the creation story found in Genesis 1 before or during the activity to help figure out the clues. This is a challenging activity appropriate for older kids. To enhance the lesson, have kids memorize the order of the days of creation.
David and Goliath Word Scramble
This activity teaches children about the inspirational story of David and Goliath. It includes a Bible verse from the story kids can memorize and 12 words to unscramble. The activity gets kids thinking about how David's courage and trust in God applies to situations today. To do this activity:
- Have kids read 1 Samuel 17 before they begin the activity.
- Give kids the word scramble.
- Encourage them to talk about what happened in the story, emphasizing how they might have felt in David's shoes.
- Finish the activity with a talk about courage.
Act Out Noah's Ark Activity
This activity teaches kids about the story of Noah's Ark and encourages kids to use their imaginations. To do the activity:
- Color and cut out the pictures on both printables. (You will see the second page once you open up the printable pdf below.)
- Have kids color the pictures. They can also create background scenes for the story on poster board or construction paper.
- Have an older child or adult read Genesis 7-8 out loud while younger children use the cut-outs to act out the story.
Printables Are Great Teaching Tools
Christian printables can be used alone or with other teaching aids to help kids learn about their faith. Printables are great tools because they can be used by a single child during quiet time or a car ride, or they may be used in a group setting. Combine them with songs or Bible readings to reinforce important lessons.
