Today I am sharing another Christ-centered idea for you to have some fun with your kids this month!
I love this idea because it includes the holy Scriptures. Now more than ever, we need to be teaching our kids TRUTH. Everywhere I look, people are forming “truths” from the media, celebrities, and popular opinion. But God’s Word is the only trustworthy, infallible authority on how to navigate this world. We must hide Scripture in our heart so that we know what is God’s best for living.
And what better way to celebrate the Bible’s truths than by pairing it with some candy for a fun and sweet experience?
I have created a Bible Verse Candy Scavenger Hunt for you to enjoy with your family!
First you will need to print out the FREE Bible Verse Candy Scavenger Hunt cards (scroll down for the link). There are 16 candies that match up with 16 different Bible verses. You can play using one of the 2 different options below.
Option #1 >> Cut out the cards with the candy and the cards with JUST the Bible verse reference. Mix them up on the table. Hand your child a Bible (if you don’t have a Bible for your kids, we love THIS ONE). Have your children race to see who can look up the Bible verses and match them with the candy the fastest. Once completed, award players with actual candy.
Option #2 >> Cut out the cards with the candy and the cards with the whole printed Bible verse. Mix them up on the table. See how fast your children can match the candy with the correct Bible verse. Award players with actual candy.
If you want to really go the extra mile, you could purchase all of the candies in the game and use the real thing instead of the picture cards. Hide the candy around the house, give them a bucket with the cards inside, and once they have found all 16 candies, they need to complete the cards before they are allowed to eat the candy! 🙂
You could plan for this to be a part of your Halloween celebration! You could call a friend on Zoom and play with them! There are lots of ways to make this Scavenger Hunt exciting and memorable.
I am planning on playing this game with my oldest son’s class this week! I am going to have them work in pairs. The first team done will get a grand prize and everyone else will get a prize for finishing.
I can’t wait to hear how you use this!
