The children love playing Book of Mormon Beanbag Toss, but we wanted to play another game to change things up a bit.
We love putting puzzles together. It's a relaxing pass time you can do with others or by yourself. We get most of our puzzles from the Dollar Store. They usually have a large selection of puzzles and they're only a dollar.
Materials: Book of Mormon, Book of Mormon Trivia Questions, & a 24 piece puzzle (We have several different puzzles the children can choose from.)
Object: Put the complete puzzle together
How to Play: Have a child read a verse from a Book of Mormon Trivia Chapter
Ask another child a Book of Mormon Trivia Question.
Alternate back and forth between children until all the questions have been answered for that verse.
Now its time for everyone to pick out puzzle pieces. The child reading the verse gets to reach their hand into the puzzle box and randomly pick out two pieces. For every question they answer correctly, they get two more puzzle pieces. If they ask for help with their question, they still get their two puzzle pieces. Anyone helping to answer a question also gets two pieces.
Have them lay their pieces out in from of them. They can start using their pieces to put the puzzle together.
Have another child read the next verse and continue playing the game until the puzzle is finished.
Variation #1: Using a 24 piece puzzle, lay out all the pieces before starting the game. The children get to choose which puzzle pieces they want. It is not a random selection.
Variation #2: Using a 100 piece puzzle, lay out all the pieces before starting the game. The children get to choose which puzzle pieces they want. It is not a random selection. Instead of giving them 2 pieces for reading a verse or answering a question, give them 4-8 pieces.
Scripture game time for this age is 15-30 minutes.
