Are You Listening?
Introduction to game: Jesus said, “The Advocate, the holy Spirit that the Father will send in my name- he will teach you everything and remind you of all that I told you” John 14:26. So are you listening? Let’s see if you are!
Have the students sit in a circle. Use an empty paper towel cardboard tube and whisper something into the next student’s ear. Have them whisper what you said in the next person’s ear. Continue to the last person and they must say what was whispered to them.
Introduce games- Jesus said, “Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him.” John 14:23
So how does Jesus want us to live our lives? By following and observing his commandments.
How are we to treat others?

The Catholic Toolbox- 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!
