Greetings!

I am deeply interested in this game, however, there's a bit of a problem. Englishis not my mother language. If you could provide the files in Word, or something that is editable ( the directions, the game board, the coloring sheet (for the words that are in there).

Advent is coming soon and I'd love to play this with my kids :)

Thank you

Hello,
I would love to use this game with my 3rd graders in CCD. But I have a question. What are the colored pieces of paper for?

Molly- There are two different directions. One for younger children and another for older. The colored cards go with the younger children game.
