How To Play:
Use Bible Trivia cards or create your own with questions, the answer and where in the Bible to find the answer (see sample questions, below). Place cards in a bag. All the children sit in a circle and one is chosen to spin the bottle for the first time. The narrow end of the bottle determines who pulls a question out of the bag and hands it to the teacher. This person does not get to see the question as the answer is also on the card. Teacher asks the question and if the child doesn't know the answer he or she is told where to look for it in the Bible. This way the child always wins!  Not only winning a piece of candy or gum, but wins by getting familiar with the Bible and how to look up something. Once he or she has answered the question, he/she spins the bottle for the next person to pick a card for a question.

The kids have had lots of fun doing this and it gets them away from "studying." What is fun to see is that they are learning without realizing they are learning!!
