*Craft for Tithing- Have the students make envelopes and put play money inside for a simple craft to emphasize tithing.
Play Money- Print this out or make your own play money. Cut out money and put into envelopes.
Christianopoloy- The object of the game is to learn the responsibility of good financial stewardship; making the right decisions about the money we have and managing it wisely. This includes being able to pay necessary bills at home, putting aside for the things you want, and taking care of your family. Not only do you have bills to pay, mortgages, insurance, etc. you must pay taxes, make donations and do tithing as well.
Tithing: How much do you tithe?- Players move around the board while figuring out how much they should tithe. If you land on the piggy bank that is hungry, you did not put God first and spent all your money. You did not leave any money to do tithing and therefore lose your next turn. If you land on Tightwad, all other players say out loud “TIGHTWAD!” because you refuse to give any money so you must change places with the player that is closest to START. Players roll the die and continue to move around the board. The first player to FINISH wins.
