To make, get several cardboard building blocks. They can be pretty price-y, so look at garage sales or ask your church if anyone has a stash they are not using any more. On the side of each block, write a word or verse phrase. I used a regular Sharpie. It is a little hard to read, so I wish I would have used a broad tip Marks-a-Lot instead.
In class, give each child a block or two. Go over the verse, then have them build the tower from bottom up OR build a "wall" along the floor.
This was a game our first graders played over and over and over...
The sample for this craft is using an Ellison die-cut heart. If you want it to be bigger, then use a larger heart and font. Before class, die-cut one heart for each child. Also type and print the words to glue on the heart.
In class, go over the memory verse. Then give kids the daubers to "fill in" the bubble letter word. The the kids glue the three strips in order onto the heart. You can stick a magnet on the back or send home plain.

These worksheets, here, have an idea for a magnet game on the first page. The second page is another worksheet for the children to color. Also, at the bottom of the page is the verse for the children to trace. The third worksheet attached is a lesson sample with questions to ask the children as you discuss the verse.
The black line master is the second page in the file below.
