Fun Alphabet Bible Memory Verses
When I was a young Christian, I was very blessed by the singing ministry of Ernie and Debbie Rettino. Once I had kids, I was thrilled to discover they had morphed their ministry into “Psalty the Singing Songbook.” My kids loved them as much as I did. So I was thrilled when I recently re-discovered a fun and handy song of theirs – the Bible Alphabet Memory verses song – which is on their album “Kids Praise! 5” also known as “Psalty’s Camping Adventure.” It made a positive impact on my kids, I know! When I asked my youngest if she remembered it, lo these many years, she did – enthusiastically!
I have been thinking and praying about what direction to go in with Little Bear and Punkin Doodle once Christmas was over and when I heard this, I also heard a little “bell” go off in my brain! I realized this could lead to many fun ways to learn alphabet along with the alphabet Bible Memory Verses from the song.
It reminded me of past fun while helping older grandkids with their Classical Conversations Timeline Song.
Classical Conversations Timeline Song
If you’re not familiar with CC, I personally think it is one of the best home school options available and I wish they had started about 20 years earlier when I was home schooling my own kids. 🙂 It’s not perfect – nothing is. But it has been a huge blessing to several of my grandkids and many other kids as well! And wow! I have to tell you! I love listening to Bible study sermons discussing history and realizing how much I actually learned while helping those cute grandkids memorize their Classical Conversations Timeline Song!
Fun Learning with Kids and Grandkids!
In fact, I’m looking forward to starting in again with these sweet cuties and listening to the Timeline song again a bit earlier than I did with my younger grandkids, along with Psalty’s Alphabet Bible Memory Verses song each week, while we enjoy a “deep dive” into alphabet fun with songs, crafts, and more!
Here’s a Youtube video of Psalty’s Alphabet song video kids enjoy with the lyrics showing.

2. I LOVED the cross picture from Jessica Lynette, even though it’s really more appropriate for older kids. It’s Romans 3:23-24 in the shape of a cross. And it covers the whole gamut of the good news! I shared this along with just Romans 3:23 and John 3:16 (which we’d worked on before). Sweet joys!
All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.
3. As you can tell, I immediately thought of Adam and Eve when reading Romans 3:23! MomJunction has several Adam and Eve coloring pages if you’d like more options.
4. A for Apple AND Apple for Trinity from Preschool Post. The Trinity is a tough concept for little ones but an important one to make a part of the regular conversation. I usually use eggs – especially at Easter with Easter Resurrection Eggs. But I LOVED this idea with apples and it’s perfect with the letter A. 🙂
General Alphabet Coloring Pages
- The Measured Mom has several excellent free printables for fun ways learn alphabet including a cute apple A dot coloring page that Little Bear loved! And be sure to check out her fun A songs too!
- *Daily Coloring Pages has Sesame Street Printable alphabet letters that would go well with the Letter of the Day Video (see below).
Bible Story Books for Kids
We read The Rhyme Bible storybook for toddlers about Adam and Eve. It barely mentioned them so I added my own words. The Rhyme Bible storybook for preschoolers and older kids tells the whole story and does it well, though a bit long. It should be great for preschoolers. For toddlers, you may need to shorten it. Or take the shorter toddler version and add to it.
While reading to Little Bear, and talking to him about it, I mainly focused on how ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, ever since Adam and Eve. BUT GOD (2 of my favorite words) had a wonderful plan and sent Jesus to save us from our sins and SOMEDAY we will ALL live in heaven forever without sin if we love Him. Simple, basic, but vital truths. And it went well with the cross coloring page I mentioned above.
Alphabet Books for Kids
I have a love-hate relationship with Dr. Seuss. I do NOT like all of his books. But the ones I like – I LOVE. And that includes his book, Dr. Seuss’ ABC book, which is part of his Beginner Books series (see below). I opted for the hardback (white cover) instead of the board book and Little Bear and I enjoyed reading it thoroughly!
Dr. Seuss’s ABC: An Amazing Alphabet Book!I Can Read All by Myself Beginner Books 10-Vol. Collection: Dr. Seuss’s ABC;The Cat in the Hat;Ten Apples Up on Top; Oh, the Things You Can Think;One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish; New Tricks I Can Do; It’s Not Easy Being a Bunny; Plus 3 MoreDr. Seuss’s ABC (Beginner Books, I Can Read It All By Myself)
We also enjoyed reading yet another cute take-off of Little Bear with the Little Bear Little Bear Alphabet stories. This week we read – Big A Little A. This was from TeachersPayTeachers and at $5 for 26 little books that I know he will love, it was well worth the price – especially for the time savings. 🙂

Alphabet Crafts Toddlers Preschoolers Like
Tasty Crafts of God’s Love
I had read a cute idea about using cookie cutters with Pizza dough to make mini-pizzas. The concept is great. The results didn’t work as well as I had hoped. The A “disappeared” as the crust “rose.” 😉 Happily, he had great fun with it AND enjoyed eating the pizza crust. Not so much the veggie toppings I later added. 🙂
We also had fun with gingerbread cookie dough and made hearts and the letter A. Funnily enough, he did NOT like making the letter A in the cookie dough. But he LOVED making the hearts and I loved sharing how God LOVED us so much, even when sin came into the world. So we were both quite happy.
Alphabet Squish! We used Play dough and made little balls. Then he put a play dough ball on the spider with the letter I called out. Then he went SQUISH! Uber simple, uber silly, and uber fun via I Can Teach My Child! 🙂
Alphabet Activities for Preschoolers & Toddlers
Puzzle-icious fun! Thanks to a great find at a local yard sale, I have several terrific wooden puzzles for my grandkids. Most had SOMETHING that had an A. So we had a lot of fun talking about the letter A for ambulance and animals. while working on the puzzle. Of course, wouldn’t you know it! His two favorite puzzles had NO A’s. But that’s OK. We had fun with them too! 🙂
I purchased a great new Toddler Activities Package from Hands on As We Grow – with fun activities geared towards 1 and 2 year olds. Little Bear and I enjoyed two activities from that as well. I’m quite excited at exploring more ideas in it with him and sharing them with Punkin Doodle once he’s a little older. If you’d like to check it out, just click here.
Building Fun Memories
All in all, it was a delightful day – with other activities as well, including kicking our little blue ball around in the backyard as well as lots of hugs, cuddles, and giggles with both boys. Next week, we move on to the Letter B. Very fun – or should I say BEAR-y fun indeed! 🙂
