    1. "Open your Bibles or look at the handout of Genesis 45:1-15. Choose a verse that you'd like to memorize. For example, I'll choose part of verse 15: 'And he kissed all his brothers and wept over them.'
    2. "On your sheet of paper, draw a blank line for each letter of each word of your verse. Be sure to leave space between the words. For my example, my blank lines would look like this (draw on the white/blackboard): Sunday school activity ages 7-12
    3. "Next, add at least one letter clue to each word.
    4. "Then, choose a code number from the keypad shown in the puzzle for each letter in your verse and write it under the blank line. In my example, it would now look like this (add the letters and numbers to your illustration on the white/blackboard):
