Good Manners: How Rude!- A fun and exciting way to review what is considered rude behavior in today’s society. The game includes 6 types of interactive game cards: multiple choice, scenario, true/false, reward for good manners, charades, and consequences for bad manners. Players or teams roll the dice and move that many spaces on the board. Whichever color is on the space you land on indicates the color card that will be used. The player to your left will read the card aloud to you and you will try to answer correctly. If you answer your question correctly, you may stay where you are. If you are not correct, everyone says, “How Rude!” and you move back to where you were. The first player or team to get to the “FINISH,” square first is the WINNER!

Crafty Crafters: Angel





So how crafty are you?

What is your favorite religious craft you make for “Mary and the Angel”?


Here is a craft I make with my students using cupcake liners:



books.google.com- Crafts from Your Favorite Bible Stories by Kathy Ross, pages 16 & 17

Jacob’s Ladder

Just make the angel that is in this craft using cupcake liners and construction paper. You can also make the angel into a magnet by putting sticky-backed magnets on the back of the angel.

*To make it easier for young children just have them fold one white cupcake liner in half (like pictured above) and attach with glue.

Prior to class I cut out the little head. It is so small that my first graders have a hard time cutting it out. I also use a paper plate to show the students how to fold the cupcake liners.



Please comment so I can add the link to your blog to this post. We would love to see what you do!

Play “Simon Says” Play “Simon Says” according to the traditional rules. One child is “Simon” and everyone has to do whatever Simon says. (For example, “Simon says, ‘Touch your head.’ ”) But if Simon does not say to do something (“Touch your head.”) and someone does it, he is out. Continue playing until every child has a chance to be Simon.
Say • Do you remember what happened in the Bible story today when Jesus told the evil spirit, “Be quiet and come out of him”? That’s right! The spirit obeyed Jesus and went away! We do not have to be afraid because Jesus is powerful! How could Jesus make evil spirits go away? Jesus is more powerful than all evil. (From mairangichurch.org- page 10.

Introduce game: Jesus knew his disciples very well. They were his friends. How well do you know your friends?

Who is knocking at my door?

Need: one chair

Directions: The students sit in their own seats while the one who is “It” sits in a chair in front of the room, with his back toward the other students. Someone is chosen by the teacher to go up and knock on the back of the chair or floor. When “It” hears the knocking he asks, "Who is knocking at my door?" The knocker answers in a disguised voice "It is I.” “It” has to guess who the knocker was. The knocker then becomes “It”.


Introduce game: Who are the apostles? What are their names?

applesaucekids.com- Simon Says Meets the Apostles
Simon says meets the Apostles: The idea of this game is just to teach the names of the Apostles. Assign the Name of an Apostle to each kid. Then play Simon says, but only use the Apostle's name when talking to each kid. And tell each kid what Simon says individually. Example: Simon says the Apostle Simon Peter can take one step forward. Only the kid that is Simon Peter can move. The rest of the kids must wait for their turn.


Disciples Memory Game

Preparation: Go to sundayschoolsources.com and print out 2 of the following cards on cardstock (just the pictures of the disciples). Cut out and laminate or cover with clear contact paper to make them last.

21- John, James, Andrew, Peter

38- Thaddaeus, Philip, Bartholomew, James son of Alphaeus

42- Judas Iscariot, Matthew, Thomas, Simon the Zealot


Directions: Cards are laid out in a grid face down, and players take turns flipping pairs of cards over. On each turn, the player will first turn one card over, then a second. If the two cards match, the player scores one point, the two cards are removed from the game, and the player gets another turn. If they do not match, the cards are turned back over.

The object is to match more pairs of cards than the opposing player. (One point is scored for each matched pair, and the player with the highest score after all cards have been matched wins.) When cards are turned over, it is important to remember where they are for when the matching card is turned up later in the game.


Disciples Go Fish Game

Preparation: Print out Disciple Trading Cards (listed above) on card stock. Cut out and laminate or cover with clear contact paper to make them last.

Directions: Go Fish is best for 2-5 players with so few cards to play with. The dealer deals 4 cards to each player. The remaining cards (if any) are placed face down to form a stock. The player to dealer's left starts. A turn consists of asking a specific player for a specific card. For example, if it is my turn I might say: “Mary, do you have James?” The player who asks must already hold one of the requested cards. If the player who was asked (Mary) has the card (James in this case), she must give her card to the player who asked for it. That player then gets another turn and may again ask any player for any card already held by the asker. If the person asked does not have the card, they say “Go fish!” The asker must then draw the top card of the undealt stock. If the drawn card is the card asked for, the asker shows it and gets another turn. If the drawn card is not the card asked for, the asker keeps it, but the turn now passes to the next player. As soon as a player collects a pair of the same disciple, this must be shown and discarded face up. The game continues until either someone has no cards left in their hand or the stock runs out. The winner is the player who then has the most pairs.
