Mr. Dozat’s insight for this issue of BIBLE TIME FUN!
I hope you have as much fun with these Bible activity bulletins as I do while I am creating them. There are puzzles, coloring pages, and word search activities for all ages. I know that I sometimes get carried away and make the puzzles a little challenging. Still, I hope that they are something that parents or teachers can do together with their children. Then, after working through one of the activities, they can talk about the question associated with the verse for that puzzle.
My favorite activity to create in this issue was the Luke 6:46 codebreaker puzzle. I replaced the letters of the verse with wingdings and pictographs to generate a code. There are a few clues to help one break the code.
The hardest to create was the hidden letter puzzle. It was a lot of work to draw the background and then add over 70 text boxes with individual letters. But I am delighted with how it turned out.
As always, I try to offer different Scriptures to cover several themes from the Word. Some are about God’s provision; others are calls to discipleship and obedience. At least two are foundational to understanding the Gospel.
- Coloring page #1 — Jeremiah 29:11.
- Shape-sort puzzle — Matthew 7:26-27.
- Codebreaker — Luke 6:46.
- Scrambler #1 — Psalm 33:18.
- Word search — Acts 2:38.
- Coloring page #2 — 2 Corinthians 5:21.
- Crossword — Romans 12:2.
- The Explorer’s Challenge #1 (a mini-Bible study) — Luke 9:23.
- Scrambler #2 — 1 John 5:12.
- Find the hidden letters — Jeremiah 9:24.
- Word search #2 (big letters) — Galatians 2:20.
- Multi-maze — 1 Corinthians 13:13b.
- Drop-word puzzle — Proverbs 2:6.
- A memory verse craft — Psalm 86:5.
- Lastly, “Lines from the Artist,” a section where I share thoughts inspired by one of the verses.
Remember, if you quarter-fold BIBLE TIME FUN WEEKLY, it will fit in an invitation envelope, which you can mail to those who missed coming to your church. In addition, you can send it to the children who visited during VBS, camp, or other outreaches as a way to water the sown seed.
