There are several ways that you can approach learning the bible. There are even more ways to approach teaching the bible. With the advancement of technology, our attention spans are growing slimmer and slimmer, and we are seeing an even further reduction in attention in our younger generations. If you’re a parent or guardian looking for a fun, new way to teach your kids about the bible, then look no further.
While we all have the opportunity to read and learn the bible when we go to church, how many of us are truly studying and trying to learn more about the bible when we are at home? Just like any kind of studying, simply reading the bible for memorization can become mundane after several repetitions. With our attention spans growing shorter, this old-school way of learning just won’t cut it anymore. We need a new and fun way to learn about the love and word of God!
2 Timothy 3:14-15: But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
That’s why we developed Loop the Fruit, to give believers of all ages an exciting new way to get closer to our Lord. Through game play, you and all players will learn simplified scripture centered around the nine fruit of the Holy Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. The scripture has been simplified, to allow our younger learners to grasp more clearly the word of our Lord.

Not only is Loop the Fruit fun, but play and board games have been proven to help with memory. We even wrote a blog about how children learn. In which, we state, “Playing board games helps to build your child’s hippocampus and prefrontal cortex. The hippocampus is mainly for regulating emotions, maintaining long-term memories, and spatial navigation. Teaching your children early on about God’s word will help them develop solid emotions with God and will embed long-term memories for them.”
Loop the Fruit teaches about God’s word, and it also gives children a safe space to learn about happily giving, humbly receiving, graciously winning, and calmly losing. While teaching children about healthy values, it explores other areas of life where children will need to develop humble emotions towards actions. If you’re looking for a new way to learn and teach the bible, Loop the Fruit is perfect for you, your family, friends, and church.
