his coming week's post is a few days early, I wanted to make sure it got up in time with the holiday weekend approaching. This week I thought I'd share another little thing we re-made to make it Catholic. Our boys love board games and we have quite our share. One of the games that they enjoy is 'Guess Who' where you pick a card and then ask questions about the other person's card trying to guess who they have and putting down the pieces that don't fit the answer to your question. While pondering away and planning the All Saints/Souls lapbook I'm working on for the month of October I decided to take the Guess Who game and make it a Saint's Game. I've included the cards I made for the game, they fit the old version of the game (I noticed there are newer designs available as well). The PDF has the directions attached, it's pretty simple to just print them on card stock and then cut them out and replace the old cards. You could even laminate these for duriablity. Some other ideas for making board games Catholic:
* Re-do the game Chutes and Ladders to give it a Cathoic theme by making the object to climb Jacob's ladder to heaven. All the objects that get the player to Heaven could be virtues and all of the chutes could be venial sins and inpefections.
*Other Guess Who Versions: Bishops of Rome, this blog would be VERY helpful in this instance, Names of Our Lady (Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, Our Lady of the Rosary ect), Fruits and Gifts of the Holy Ghost, Stations of the Cross and other Lenten ideas.
* Checkers- Make little saints to go on top of the checkers
* Replace Chess pieces using little wooden pieces painted as Saintly Kings for the Kings (and Queens), Saintly Bishops for the bishops, St. Joan of Arc'sand St. George's horse for the horses ect.
We are also linking up with Catholic Icings First Friday
