For example, if it’s a lesson on loving others, you might pray that God will help you to love others, etc.) Shuffle deck of cards and place them in a pile in the middle of the kids. They will take turns drawing a card, one by one. They should follow the instructions, depending on what card they draw.
If they draw a heart, they will say the memory verse.
If they draw a spade, they will answer a review question.
If they draw a diamond, they will share a “gem” (a valuable piece of information) they learned.
If they draw a club, they will pray (out loud or silently).
