Memorizing 2 Corinthians 5:17 with Kids
Our “T” Bible memory verse is from 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if anyone is in Christ he is a new creation; the old has passed away behold the new has come.”
Meaning of 2 Corinthians 5:17 for Kids
It’s always helpful when memorizing if the kids understand the meaning of the verse. But finding explanations for children can be difficult. This activity that uses a caterpillar and butterfly is a great idea! Children are amazed by the transformation that caterpillars make!
Depending on the age of your children, just scrolling through some pictures of caterpillars and butterflies on your phone while talking through the lesson will probably be enough.
