John 3:16 Activities

This week Buddy and I worked on his memorization of John 3:16.  Several times a day, I would say the verse word by word and have him repeat it after me.   It is a great way to pass the time in the car on short trips.  We also did several John 3:16 activities throughout the week.

We colored his Bible verse sheet from Hubbard's Cupboard

We read Max Lucado's book God's Great Big Love for Me together.
God's Great Big Love For Me: 3:16 - Preschool Edition (John 3:16)

I changed my plans for his Bible verse poster and had him color a pattern with the words.  Buddy chose two colored pencils and then made a pattern with those colors.  I helped him at first but by the end of the verse, he was telling me which color came next.  If he is interested, I'll let him glue the worlds around the poster tomorrow or next week.  It will be a good reason to review the verse again.

He painted the hearts for DLTK's Growing Together Stuffed Heart Craft but they were not dry in time to finish the craft today.  Buddy used lots of red paint!

Today, Buddy was able to say all of John 3:16 by memory and I am so proud of him!  Here is a video of him saying the verse before bed time.  I hope you enjoy!


  1. Thanks for your idea about coloring a pattern for these letters. I work with kindergarten aged kids in Awana and this will be perfect for them while learning this verse.

  2. Grandma has family lessons on how to be a Christian. It includes a simplified version of the peace treaty. You’ll find it here:
