In this no-prep, no supplies memory game, everyone must think of items they can buy in a supermarket. Players then take turns to recite the line, “I went to the supermarket and bought…”, completing the line by listing all the items bought by previous players and adding a new item at the end. This game is a great filler for the little extra class time that you may have. It also works well as an introduction to a lesson about the importance of Scripture memory.
