Moms in the Bible Trivia
Mother’s Day is approaching! Do you have some fun games lined up for the many kids who will visit your church? Have some extra bibles on hand so kids who don’t normally bring a bible will have access to one for this trivia game.
I don’t recommend Bible games as an icebreaker, especially when you have new kids, but once every knows who their new friends are, let the games begin!
I visited the dollar store and purchase six small white dry erase boards. I gave one to each of my contests. Each contest had a partner who helped him or her find the bible answers. When they thought they had the answer, they wrote the answer on the board. At the end of five minutes, I asked all the contestants to reveal their answers! We swapped up and got new contestants and partners. It was a fun way to get kids into the word, and working together.
Really emphasize that just calling the out the answer will get you disqualified. Some kids know their stuff!
