If you’re looking for a fun outdoor activity with the kids this summer then a bible scavenger hunt is perfect for you. It won’t take long to set up and will have the kids playing for hours if you make it long enough.
The premise of the hunt is to have the kids look up the items they need to collect using bible versus. Then they collect all the items and turn them in to collect the prize. You can go through the bible and fin your favorite versus but here are a few examples to help give you an idea.
- Leaf – Proverbs 11:28
- Five Smooth Stones – 1 Samuel 17:40
- Grass and a Seed – Genesis 1:11
This is a great way to teach kids how to look up passages in the bible. You can also use it as a way for them to read some of your favorite parts of the bible. Once you have all the items listed that the kids will collect you can start working on the clues. You can either write the clues out on paper or use the TextClues service to send the messages using text messages. The clues can look something like this:
