These 10 Bible verses are perfect for toddlers to memorize, helping them hide God's Word in their hearts! They learn so quickly and love committing Scripture to memory!

Every time our two year old goes to her Tiny Tots Sunday school class, the teacher passes around the Bible and asks the kids if they want to put their hands on it. If they forget one Sunday, you can bet Lydia will wave her arms wildly in the air and remind them that she wants to “touch God’s Word”!

There is nothing sweeter than a toddler getting excited about learning Scripture! As Christian parents, we truly desire to our children to have a personal relationship with Jesus through His Word. I love that we can start early on teaching our kids a variety of Bible verses.

I wanted to share our 10 favorite Bible verses that we teach our little ones!

They talk about who God is and how much He loves us and what He has done through Jesus, which is a solid foundation for all Bible learning. They’re a great springboard for teaching your toddler Scripture verses that will be cherished and remembered for their whole lives!

10 Bible Verses to Teach Your Toddler

You can choose to teach the entire verse of those that are longer, or just an abbreviated portion. I’ve put the “extra” part of these verses in parenthesis, but older toddlers really do pick up on Scripture quickly, so they will likely have no problem learning the whole thing!

This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it! Psalm 118:24

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, (that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16

I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; (wonderful are Your works, and my soul knows it very well.) Psalm 139:14

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1

The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; (in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing). Zephaniah 3:17

He counts the numbers of the stars; He gives names to all of them. Psalm 147:4

Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; (for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus). 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. Psalm 107:1

10 Comments on 10 Bible Verses to Teach Your Toddler

  1. This is great! I love that they are short and easy to learn. I’m always amazed at how quickly kids can memorize. We recently were helping our 7 yr. old son learn most of a chapter in Matthew as part of his school work and our 4 yr. old was learning it along with him. One night my husband started in with the first two words to get them started and our just turned 2 yr. old began to finish the verse! I wasn’t terribly surprised, because I’ve learned how much they pick up just by listening, but it still was pretty neat!

    • Isn’t it amazing? I remember my college Spanish teachers saying kids learn so much more quickly than adults and retain information better (hence, her belief about teaching another language at a young age). It’s so fun to think about how many verses our kids will know as they grow up (and super adorable to hear it from your two year old)!

  2. As part of our flower unit in homeschool last week our verse was Isaiah 40:8
    “Grass withers and flowers fall, but the word of our God will stand forever.”

    Thank you for these! This was very helpful!

  3. Beautiful ideas. I just started teaching my 2.5 year old ‘Gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger’ from Proverbs 15, and she caught on so quickly especially with actions. Here in Australia we love, and I’m sure most Christian Kids have grown up listening to Colin Buchanan and his Scripture memory songs.

    • Love that verse! We’ve done that one too, but with the older kids. I haven’t heard of Colin Buchanan’s scripture music, I’ll have to check it out. Thanks!

  4. “Open my eyes that I may see the wonderful things in your law.” Psalm 119:18
