Memory Verse Game

Place a paper covered lolly in each balloon before blowing them up. One Balloon for each word, and scripture reference.

Tie onto a length of string clearing marking the balloons.

With 2 people holding the ends of the string, get the class to read out the scripture.
Choose a child to pop a balloon with a pin, get them to read it again remembering the word that is missing. Work your way through until the children have no words left. I have seen children who are fearful of balloons bursting, persevere to get the reward inside. The reaction of each child is so different, it never becomes boring, and the verse is always learnt. Sometimes I challenge the boys or girls to see which group can say it when the balloons are nearly all popped. I have done this in church with adults and it was a great success.
