Bible Treasure Hunt Game

I wrote for our kids a Game for our Body of Christ day camp. Kids have to find the Bible verse, fill in the blank on the clue, then use that clue to go find the next clue. In parentheses behind each clue, I explain the answers and how they relate to the "hiding space locations" at our particular church. Hope it makes some sense.....just wanted to share!

Just as _____ sharpens _____, friends sharpen the minds of each other.

(TO FIND CLUE #2: The railing on the ________in front of the church is made of this.) (IRON; our church has wrought iron railing on the front steps.)
