Verse “T” in the ABC series for Bible memory for kids is 2 Corinthians 5:17. Each part in the series includes a free printable, a YouTube video, consistency, and a short lesson.
This post is part of a 26 part series where to help you memorize Bible Verses with your kids. Each post contains 4 elements: a scripture, a video (song), a printable, and teaching. (and sometimes a weekly tip!) There are 26 Bible verses – one for each letter of the alphabet. You can check out the whole series here or just enjoy the resources for memorizing 2 Corinthians 5:17 below!
Memorizing 2 Corinthians 5:17 with Kids
Therefore if anyone is in Christ he is a new creation; the old has passed away behold the new has come.
Teaching 2 Corinthians 5:17 for Kids
It’s always helpful when memorizing if the kids understand the meaning of the verse. But finding explanations for children can be difficult.
This story that uses a caterpillar and butterfly is a great way to help your children understand the verse and memorize it. Children are amazed by the transformation that caterpillars make so it should make learning fun. (Note: if the link opens in Spanish, if you’re using Chome, click on “translate” to read it in English.)
Depending on the age of your children, just scrolling through some pictures of caterpillars and butterflies on your phone while talking through the lesson may be enough or go outside and look for caterpillars or butterflies and talk about how we become a new creation in Christ just like butterflies do.
Printable for 2 Corinthians 5:17
Remember to print your scripture verse out each week and hang it next to your child’s bed or wherever you are memorizing the verse and singing the song.
Learning Through Song
Your kids will love it and you’ll be sure to catch on to the tune as a result. It is one you will both learn in no time. It is from The Rizers. They have a lot of kids worship songs based on scripture that is easy to help your kids memorize the Word.
If the past few weeks have been a little slow, this video will reignite the fun with your kids.
