Hisss-The colorful snake making card game for younger students.

Place the cards in a stack face down in the middle of the playing area. The first player draws a card and places it face up on the playing area. Going clockwise the next player draws a card and if it matches the first card to make a snake of the same color, they place the card next to it so they are touching. If you can place a head or tail card to complete a snake, you win that snake. Say “Hisss!” and slide it in front of you. The snakes you win form your snake pit. If the card does not match, lay it face up in the playing area to start a new snake. Play continues clockwise with each player drawing one card, either matching it to a “snake-under construction” or starting a new snake if there is no color match. The player with the most completed snakes wins.

What a nice compilation of materials. Thanks for posting this!

The Adam & Eve Story Wheel (bottom) link is not working. There is part of your blogs' address mixed in with the orgsite address.

Also, I did not notice if you have listed, but there are some printables that some one may find useful.

Thanks again for all the hard work posting the great lesson plans. I only have one child this age (my daughter) but I love that I do not have to spend hours searching for printables or ideas.

God Bless,

Thanks for the heads up about the Adam & Eve Story Wheel (bottom) not working. It had a space in the URL that wasn't supposed to be there and I fixed it.

The orgsite address is from my website: Church Crafts & Activities

Free online links and info for religious references and education.

I'll be sure to add more of the info posted at

Thanks! :)

What Bible story books do you recommend? I would love to get a few books to use to read with my toddlers and use to teach lessons. I want to make sure the ones I get are consistent with Catholicism. Thanks!!

Kristin- I bought my books years ago. I bet there are lots out that would be good for your children. I use: The Usborne Children's Bible by Heather Amery- A collection of 44 favorite Bible stories, all very accurate retellings from Scripture that are easy for children to understand and enjoy. The book is very colorful and has beautiful illustrations that children really enjoy.
