Bible Memory Games Series #1- Clothes Pin Game

Scripture memory is such an important part of our Christian Faith!  It is vital to pass our beliefs to the next generation.  Sometimes, I wonder what would happen if there were not any more Bibles.  Would we remember The Word?  How much of it could we recollect?  I know for myself, many of the verses that I remember, I learned as a child in a scripture memory club.  These verses are still with me today!  How malleable the mind of a child must be.  Recently, I came up with a few games to help my children and others learn memory verses.  Most of the materials I used, I was able to get a the Dollar Store. Here is the first game:
