I recommend printing the verse and hanging it up somewhere that your kids will see it throughout the day. Then when you’re ready to practice memorization it will be that much easier.
teaching the bible Verse to children
You can create your own lesson for Matthew 12:34 by taking an empty cup and some tennis balls. On the tennis balls write some thoughts – good and bad on each one with your kids. Then have your kids help you add the balls to the cup. Soon the cup should begin to overflow. (If it doesn’t, either add more balls or add water.)
Look at what is written on the balls that fall out. Are the words positive or negative? Talk about the cup being our heart and what is flowing out of our heart is our thoughts.
Video for Matthew 12:34
Our chosen song may be repetitive for adults but it will help your children memorize it.
This video does a good job of incorporating the reference (Matthew 12:34) into the song. Usually, this is the most difficult piece to remember so whenever its included in the song, I consider that a bonus!
