I love how the Word of God is so visual and how exciting it is to know that God's Word can be described by such great objects as a Sword, a devouring Flame, a crushing Hammer and a Lamp unto our Feet! 

These are things that kids know.  Now it's your job to have fun with Bible games for kids and put the Word of God into their hands, minds and hearts.

What you need: For this Bible game you will need to prepare the following cards:

7 Sword Cards, 7 Flame Cards, 7 Hammer Cards, and 7 Lamp Cards

Back all the cards with the small title backings and then laminate all the cards so that they will last for a long time.

Set Up:  For this game, I use a pocket chart (approx. 28" square). (You can find pocket charts at your local teacher supply store or online at  Place all 28 cards onto the pocket chart in random mixed up order with the backing titles showing.  Pick a scorekeeper to keep track of all scoring.  I always use a white board sitting on an easel for scoring.  I also place my pocket chart on an easel.

How to Play:  Instead of dividing my class into 2 teams, I play this game against myself (the teacher) and my class. Give a child from the class a multiple choice question.  If he gets it correct, he now gets the chance to pick a card off the board without showing it to anyone.  You, as the teacher, also get to pick a card off the board without showing it to anyone.  Now cue your class to say, "Sword, Flame, Hammer, Lamp!"  Once the word "Lamp" is shouted, both the child and teacher reveal their cards.  The one who is holding the picture with the highest score gets the points.  Now it's the next child's turn.  Have them follow the same procedure until you have asked all the multiple choice questions.  The team with the most points wins.  So, in this game the teacher could actually win!  Sounds like fun, huh?

Tip:  If the teacher and child pick identical cards, the points go to the child's team.

"For by grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves, it is a gift from God. Not of works lest anyone should boast."

Ephesians 2:8-9
