How to Play Missing Words Match:

  • Print out the pages for the verses you want to use. Alternatively, you can also just write the lyrics right up on the whiteboard.

  • Have the children come up and draw a line from the missing word blank to the correct word on the side of the whiteboard. Or, alternatively, you can move the missing words to fill in the blank. Keeping them out of order will add to the challenge, and fun!
