Do you teach Sunday School or are you involved in the youth program at your church?
Consider incorporating some Bible Quilt template pages into your activities!
I've got a sweet friend in Texas that's working with a group of 5th graders this year. She's teaching on the passage Matthew 6:19-34 and wanted to have a BQ page with 16 squares, one for each verse.
I offered her this option using the Bible Quilt Block-16 template but two templates with 8-9 squares could have worked also.
I formatted the template to be 8.5 x 11 size for the kiddos to have space to write their verses.
I recommended that they use washi tape to create a border around the page to frame it and to reinforce the edges a bit.
When wide washi tape is used around the page perimeter, it also creates a colorful frame on the back side of the page. The students can draw an illustration or personalize it with their name.
I started plugging in verses, choosing which BQ square to put verses in according to their length and attempting to keep similarly themed verses as "next door neighbors" on the page. (You can visually group verses together by using the same color marker, coloring in the borders with the same color, or shading the squares the same color.)
I featured the more familiar verses in the circles to stand out from the rest. Depending on the age of your students, you may have to figure out all the spacing & words in advance for them to have a visual guide. Keep yours fairly straightforward so it allows them the chance to be creative in their own style.
You can paraphrase or use main phrases rather than write the verses verbatim. I wrote out mostly full verses because I was testing the spaces out for my friend. Add the references in each square or use one of the BQ squares as a title, then just use the verse number in each square. (See the last photo for how I used a mix of both ways.)
Kids love embellishments! So if you're leading a group, you might want to have some stickers and/or washi tape that coordinate with your lesson topic. This page could have used some hearts, lilies, birds, or coin stickers. I improvised with some washi tape patterns I had on hand.
Finished pages can be put in page protectors or laminated to be used as visual reminders of the Sunday School lesson. Then they can be hung on a dry erase board, refrigerator, or even taped to a bathroom mirror.
If you have an on-going series, you could have the kids keep their pages in a 3-ring binder and build their resource book throughout the semester.
Let me know if you're interested in using this #biblequilting system for a Sunday School class and we can collaborate re: how to incorporate BQ templates into your curriculum!
