Whispers from the web...memory verse ideas

My kids are almost done with their awana books, and I always feel like we do them a disservice by NOT intentionally working on memory verses during the summer school break.  I am going to change that this year! 

My Family for His Glory has been working on Pslam 145 this spring, and she has an activity for each week to help reinforce the verse or just practice together.  I think my kids and I will do this in May/June. 

You can find her ideas here:

I especially like this puppet idea for our family trip this summer- simple paper bags can be transformed on a long plane ride or a slow day!   I had already decided that our kids will challenge their cousins to memorize a passage while we are on a weeklong cruise as a family of 21 people.  What better way to ensure we are loving and kind than to be reviewing God's Word in our minds.  Thinking about Psalm 103 as a good perspective psalm... anyone have any other suggestions? 

I'm learning that I must plan these spiritual disciplines and when I do, I am thankful and we find true joy in walking and talking the Word of God.  

I could make the following things to enhance it:
memory card puzzles

maybe a SLAM journal of the verses and memories of the trip?

scripture typer cards

First letter cards....word finds....crossword puzzles

hmm... so many options...must plan and set a goal!
