How to Play Bible Baseball

Have you been to a baseball game lately? No? Then start a game of your own – Bible Baseball style!

Set Up: You will need 4 bases – one home plate, one 1st base, one 2nd base, and one 3rd base. You will also need one card of each of the following titles – Home run, Single, Double, and Triple. Place the bases on the ground in baseball diamond fashion and place the cards in a bucket.

How to Play: Pick one child from each team. Decide who goes first. Give the child a Bible review question. If he/she gets it correct, they now get the chance to pick a card out of the bucket. If they pick the single card they move to first base, the double card moves them to second base, the triple card moves them to third base and the Home Run card gives them an automatic home run. Place the chosen card back into the bucket. At this point of the game, both teams have had their first players “up to bat”.

The second child from the 1st team goes next and follows the same procedure. Whatever card he/she picks will also move ahead any of his team members that are already on another base. For example, if a Team A child is on 2nd base and another Team A child comes “up to bat” and picks a double card, the first Team A child now goes to Home plate and scores a run for their team while his teammate goes to second base.

The team with the most home runs at the end of your Bible review time wins.
