Matching Game Bible Activities for Children
Here's how the match game works. Shuffle eight pairs of tiles and lay them facedown in a four by four square. Turn over two tiles, and if you have a match, you get to remove it from the "board" and try again. If you don't have a match, your turn is over. Whoever has the most tiles at the end of the game wins. The match game activities below highlight various Bible situations and themes.
