Salvation is a precious gift. Use this memory verse activity to reinforce that truth.
Ephesians 2:8-9: “For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift.—not from works so that no one can boast.”
Materials: plastic wrap, copies of the verse printed on gift tags. Before class, make a gift “ball” by wrapping several gift tags up a ball of plastic wrap.
Directions: Allow the kids to take turns unwrapping the ball until they come to a gift tag, then they can either lead the class in saying the verse or ask a leader to lead the class. You can consider wrapping enough tags up in the ball so each child can have a turn, or just have extra tags, so that each child can go home with one after you’re done with this activity.
*As an alternative, you could wrap a box with several layers of wrapping paper, with the verse written on each layer and let the kids take turns peeling off a layer of wrapping paper and then reading the verse.
