Something we've done with our kids taught them to memories a verse from each of the 27 books of the New Testament. The idea is that they get a week or so to learn it (some are harder and some are easier). I've tried to choose verses that capture something of the heart of each book, so that they are not only learning a verse, but being introduced to the whole New Testament. It's worked well and been fun, so I thought I'd put it here in case anyone else wants to use it. - Rory Shiner
