Looking for a fun, creative idea to use with your Bible Drillers or in a Sunday school Class? Try our Draw a verse idea from our new ebook. This activity can be used at home, online during a zoom call, at church, or outdoors.
Materials Needed: paper, crayons, colored pencils, or markers; (variation – canvas and paint); Bible
Do: Have the children/students locate the verse and read it out loud. Tell them to write/paint the verse somewhere on the page/canvas. Discuss the verse and then ask the children/students to draw an illustration of the verse. (What does it mean to them or how can they apply that verse to their life?) Set a timer and give the children/student a certain amount of time to do their drawing/painting. When the timer goes off, allow each child/student to show their drawing/painting and tell what it means to them. Then have them recite the verse again.

Have students scroll through their phone and pick a picture that represents a Bible Drill verse to them. Have them edit the photo and add the text of the verse to the photo. Let students share the photo with your group and/or on social media.
