Fun Bible Survival Activities for Families

One of the challenges for families wanting to have Bible studies together is how to make it more fun when they have time for more than just reading scripture and discussing it. We may have just the solution you need.

On our website, we have hundreds of fun activities directly tied to specific Bible stories which you can use to reinforce the spiritual meaning, application principles, academic subjects or even do family service projects connected to scripture readings.

One fun category is sustenance and survival. Originally devolved for children living in lower income countries, the activities can be fun and different for kids in higher income areas. Not only will they learn some helpful skills if they are ever caught in the wilderness, they can also use them to teach others in the mission field.

The activities are all tied to specific Bible stories. What kid wouldn’t want to learn how to make a battery from food, purify water, make food using the heat from the sun, use the stars as a GPS and more? More importantly, they will have opportunities to better understand the themes behind many of the Bible stories they have heard before and many ones that may be new to them.

Currently, we have over forty activities in this category and are adding more. Best of all the lessons are all free! So the next time you have the space for a longer devotional have some fun with one of our survival activity Bible lessons!
