Games

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, 22- James, 23- Andrew, 24- Peter

38- Thaddaeus, 39- Philip, 40- Bartholomew, 41-James son of Alphaeus

42- Judas Iscariot, 43- Matthew, 44- Thomas, 45- 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.

Introduce game: How well do you know about Holy Week? Let’s find out.

Play one of the following review games and use the questions below.


Introduce game: What crowed three times just like Jesus said it would? A rooster.

Pass the Rooster!

Directions- An egg timer is set for any time the teacher wishes. Have the students sit in a circle. The teacher then gives a student a rooster and asks them a Bible Question. The student must answer the question correctly. If they do not, the student must answer another question until they are correct. When the student is correct, the teacher says, “Pass the rooster!” and the student passes the rooster to the person on their right and that student must answer a Bible Question to be able to pass the rooster. Whoever is holding the rooster with the timer goes off is the rooster.




Basketball

Need: one small ball (or two balled up pieces of paper), two chairs, one trashcan.

Directions: Put a trashcan against a wall. Divide the class into two teams. Have students line up in two teams behind a chair (to keep them from getting too close to basket). Ask the first person in Team #1 a question. If they are correct, they get to try to make a basket. If they make a basket, their team gets a point. If they do not get a basket, their team does not receive a point. After the first player has his turn, he then goes to the end of Team #1’s line. It is now Team #2’s turn. The team with the most points wins.

Remind them of all the things that may be considered a sin, and have them write the number down on the piece of paper.

St. Valentine Game

Introduction to game: What do you know about St. Valentine and St. Valentine’s Day?

Materials- large die, egg timer, questions about St. Valentine and St. Valentine’s Day

Make a die out of a large juice carton girlguides.ca and put a ? mark on some (at least 3) of the sides of the die.

Cube Signs for St. Valentine Game- Print, cut out, and glue on die to play game.


Directions- The objective of the game is to get the most points by answering questions about St. Valentine and St. Valentine’s Day. After studying and discussing this subject, divide the class into teams and have the students come up with questions. Set an egg timer for a specified time. Have a player roll the die on the floor in front of the class. If the die lands on a blank space, they do not answer a question. If the die lands on “?”, they are asked a question by the other player or team. If the player answers correctly, they receive a point (you can use tokens, write it on the board, etc.). If they are not correct, they do not receive a point. Players must collect as many points as they can. The game is over when the egg timer goes off. Whoever has the most points, wins. You can play this game individually or in teams. For an added challenge, you can also have “Lose 1 Point” and “Take 1 Point” on one or a couple of the sides of the die. When a player rolls “Lose 1 Point”, they must lose 1 point. If a player rolls “Take 1 Point”, they may take a point from any player they choose.





Sacrament of Matrimony (file folder game)- Answer different kinds of questions (multiple choice, True or False, Fill in the Blank, or Puzzles) about the Sacrament of Matrimony as you move around the board.



Introduction to game: For Catholics, the sacrament of marriage is a public sign that one gives oneself totally to this other person. It is also a public statement about God: The loving union of husband and wife speaks of family values and also God's values.

Craft- Introduce today’s activity: Today we are learning how Jesus used the Bible to help him say “no” to the devil. Show the children your craft. Read the Scripture Memory Verse written in the pickle. Say: Just as we need bread we also need other nourishing types of foods such as meat and cheese. Jesus knows that the Bible is the best food for our souls. Just as it is important to eat food each day to stay healthy, it is also important to read the Bible every day to stay healthy in our souls. Today we will make hero sandwiches to remind us that true heroes are nourished by God’s word!


Hero Sandwich- from Jesus Defeats Satan: Lesson 1 (page 5, & 16).
On pickle: Jesus answered, "It is written, One does not live on bread alone." Luke 4:4

Directions:

1. Distribute the paper plates, crayons, pickles and glue. Have the children glue their pickles near the bottom edge of their plates.
2. Give the children one of their bread slices (it can be made out of construction paper or a sponge). Have them glue the bread to their plates above the pickles.
3. Have the children pick three of the sandwich items (cheese, bologna, salami, turkey, lettuce, tomato slice, etc. made out of construction paper). Have them glue each item onto their bread.
5. Give the children their second slice of bread. Help them tape the bread to the top of their sandwiches.
6. Have the children write their names on their plates.

Introduce games: A good person out of the store of goodness in his heart produces good, but an evil person out of a store of evil produces evil; for from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks. 6:45
What does this mean? You’ve heard it said that you are what you eat. If that is true, it is more true that you are what you say. Your words reveal your heart. The things you say, and how you say them expose and unveil the condition and attitudes of your heart. I doubt most people realize this. If they did, they would be more careful about what they said and how they said it. Most people think actions reveal the heart. There is even a saying we have all heard: “Actions speak louder than words.” It is out of the overflow of the heart that the mouth speaks. It is the tongue that sets the body on fire. It is not what goes into a man that makes him unclean, but what comes out of him. So are you a good person? Let’s see how good you actually are.

The Catholic Toolbox- How RUDE!
Do you respect everyone and treat them kindly at all times? During our daily contact with others we can show compassion and generosity by treating them with respect and courtesy. This dignified and respectable behavior that we give to others is part of what Jesus was talking about. Try your best to treat others as you would like to be treated and you will find that it will help you so much in everyday life with getting along with others. This game is a fun and exciting way to review what is considered rude behavior in today’s society. 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!
