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.

The snakes are great for the first week of Lent - temptation is in the Sunday Genesis reading. My age levels are from 4 to 12 on Sunday - all will remember the snakes and/or the temptation reading. Nancy - St. Clair Shores, MI
