God’s Word Has Rhythm: Two Fun Bible Memory Verse Activities for Your Preschoolers

I don’t know about you, but I love putting Bible verses to music and sometimes I like putting a Scripture to a catchy rhythm. I think Psalm 33:4 lends itself nicely to a good strong drumbeat. In fact, when I read this verse I pictured my little ones “drumming” on their knees with their hands while putting this verse to memory. Here is the rhythmic verse I came up with:
For the word of the Lord is right and true


He is faith ful in all He does


Pa rum pum pum


Pa rum pum pum


Pa rum pum pum pum pum


Psalm thir ty-three verse four


(The words that are underlined are those words you emphasize.)


So now that you have a catchy beat, here are 2 super fun activities to help your preschoolers learn the truth that God’s Word is indeed “right and true.”


Scripture Activity #1: You’ve Got Rhythm


The only thing you need for this activity is the above Bible verse of Psalm 33: and your body. Teach your little ones the Bible verse and have them clap along to the beat. Once they feel comfortable with this come up with other fun body rhythms to do during the “pa rum pum pum” sections. For example, lead the children in clapping their hands once then slapping their knee alternating the two movements. Here are some other ideas:


1. Clap your hands then pat your head.


2. March around in a circle while swinging your arms back and forth.


3. Jump 2 times then wiggle your body 2 times.


4. Bend your knees then rise up on your tippy toes.


There are lots of possibilities. See if your little ones can think of some as well.


Scripture Activity #2: Match the Bible


For this activity you will need to prepare duplicate pictures of matching Bibles. (By the way, if you need good pictures, you can always Google: images and then type in “Bible.” It will provide you with many great choices.) Make sure you prepare a different Bible for each child. Laminate the pictures for long-term use. Place them on the floor in a circle big enough for your class to walk around. Teach the Bible verse above to the beat given. When the verse is done, say, “Stop!” Have each child pick up the Bible they are closest to. You, the teacher, will hold up one of the Bibles. Whoever is holding that particular Bible now sits in the center of the circle and claps to the beat of the verse on the next round. Play until all the children are sitting in the circle.


An extra idea: You could have a Scripture written on each Bible from Psalm 119 and read the verse on the chosen Bible before playing the next round. The more your children hear God’s Word, the better.
