Bible Trivia – A Great Sunday School Activity for Kids

| October 30, 2011 | 0 Comments

To many people fun Bible trivia for kids is a way to kill time or to entertain the children. However Bible trivia does a lot more than entertain.  It reinforces what the children have already learned, and it teaches them more.  Some research shows that when kids are presented facts in competition, they learn more quickly and retain more subject matter than through school memorization or wrote.  Bible Trivia is a fun way to prepare kids for real life with stories from real-life history.

Even Preschoolers Can Compete at Bible Trivia

To many people fun Bible trivia for kids is a way to kill time or to entertain the children. However Bible trivia does a lot more than entertain.

You can start teaching kids by using Bible trivia at a very young age.  Most preschoolers who regularly attend Sunday school know the stories of Noah, Jonah, David & Goliath and a few others.  Doing Bible trivia questions with kids will help prepare them for the types of testing that await them in school—and in a fun way.  Bible trivia contests also provide an opportunity to reinforce the exciting details of what they’ve learned in Sunday school. 

Finally, trivia for kids provides a great opportunity to compare biblical heroes with people of today.  Show them a trivia question that asks, “which Bible heroes were called by God and asked in terror, “why me??”  That’s a great opportunity to share how ancient heroes were just as scared as we are to do brave things. Trivia questions can help kids believe that God can use them too!

Here’s an easy bible trivia contest  

Below is a Bible Trivia Contest for kids as young as four but will work for those new to our faith of any age.  If you use it remember praise, praise, praise!  Praise for correct answers is just as good as a prize (thought prizes wouldn’t hurt either)!
