Road to Emmaus Game



This game is free, however it is only to be used for classroom and personal use. It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit.




Road to Emmaus Game- Review Luke 24:13-35. Draw on the board a chart and have the players throw a suction toy at the board. Where ever it sticks, the team has to follow the directions. The team with the most points wins.

Directions- Have students read Luke 24:13-35 carefully. Review if necessary. Put Bibles aside. Put Questions Cards in a small basket. Draw on the board the chart shown. Divide the class into at least 3 teams. Write each team’s name on the board so you can keep score. Place the chair several feet from the board. Have a player from one team stand behind the chair and throw the suction cup ball at the board. Where ever it sticks, the team has to follow the directions. If the suction cup ball misses the chart or does not stick, their turn is forfeited. If the suction cup ball sticks on “Lose A Point” the team loses a point. If the suction cup ball sticks on “Take A Point” they may take a point from any team they choose. If the suction cup ball sticks on “?” the team player draws a Question Card from the basket and reads it out loud. The teacher then turns over the minute timer while the team ponders the question. If they answer the question correctly before the minute timer runs out, they receive a point and it is written on the board. If they are not correct, they do not receive a point. The next team takes their turn (each player on the team must take their turn throwing the suction cup ball) and so on. The game continues until all the Question Cards are gone. The team with the most points wins.


Options-

1. Students can use Bibles to help them answer the questions.

2. The next team may answer the question if the first team cannot. If they answer the question correctly in one minute, they receive the point and then it is their turn to throw the suction cup ball.

3. Using Bibles, the team will have to answer the question AND cite the verse number where the answer comes from. They will receive 2 points if they can do both. The team will receive one point if they can only answer one part of the question correctly.


Directions

Question Cards- (Use these or make your own.) Print Question Cards out on card stock. Cut out Question Cards. Laminate or cover with clear contact paper to make them last.

Random Acts of Kindness (file folder game)



Jesus was always kind and helpful to the people he met. Jesus showed his love by caring for those who needed his healing touch. The next time you want to let someone know how much you care for them, remember that we show others we care, not just by sending flowers and gifts, but by showing acts of kindness each and every day -- just like Jesus did.


This game is free, however it is only to be used for classroom and personal use. It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit.





Kindness can be contagious. The smallest and most simplest acts of kindness can make a difference in someone’s life in a very big way.



Random Acts of Kindness: Children identify Random Acts of Kindness as they move around the board.




Place your marker any where on the game board. Roll the die and move clockwise that many spaces. Read out loud whatever is on your space and say whether it is a Random Act of Kindness or not. If it is a Random Act of Kindness, receive 1 Random Acts of Kindness token (or milk cap, poker chip, etc.). If it is not a Random Act of Kindness, lose a token. When the player receives 10 Random Acts of Kindness tokens, they work their way around the board to “Spread Kindness”. Players must roll the exact number to “Spread Kindness”. Continue playing to find out who comes in second, third, fourth, etc. place.

I adapted a version of this game: Passages of the Prophets





The Prophets Game: The object of the game is to be the first player to go from square number 1 to square number 80. Age 5 to adult.


Need:

Playing piece for each player
1 die
Question Cards
Game Board


Set Up: Place your game pieces near square number one. Shuffle the deck and place it face down in a small basket near the game board. Put an empty basket nearby for the discards.


Rules: Basically the game is like Chutes and Ladders. Roll the die and move the corresponding number of squares. Each player gets one roll each turn. If you land on a square with an arrow on it, follow the arrow to where it ends. Arrows can go up or down. If you land on a prophet square, the person on your right picks up a Question Card and reads it out loud (if they cannot read it, someone else can read it for them). On each card is a question about a prophet from the Bible. If you answer correctly, you get to take an extra turn. If not, the game moves on to the next player. (For younger students they do not have to answer a question, they get to take an extra turn.) The first player to square #80 is the winner. You must land there by exact count. If your roll takes you past square #80, don’t move. Try again on your next turn.



Directions- Print out Directions. Keep inside file folder for safe keeping.

Game Board- Print game board on legal size paper (8.5” x 14”). Print out Game Board, trim, and glue on the inside of a legal size file folder or a piece of cardboard.

Pride (file folder game)





Pride File Folder Game: Land on a space that says PRIDE and identify whether the situation is about pride or being humble. Land on a Peacock picture you tell about a time you were full of pride. Land on a Humble Pie picture you must tell about a time you were humble.


Introduction: Write PRIDE on the board. Say: Pride is a feeling of superiority. This haughty attitude is shown by someone who believes they are greater than, more important, more deserving, or more qualified than anyone else. This arrogance deceives us and tries to make us believe that we do not need God or others and we only need ourselves. Another face of pride is self-righteousness. Self righteousness is setting oneself above others and letting everyone know that they are better than others. It is the belief that says, “My way is right and no other way is right.”

Pride hardens the mind and refuses to hear the wisdom of anyone. It closes us off from others and from God; it rejects all other wisdom. This closed mindedness brings consequences. Rejecting God’s help and direction hinders our spiritual growth, making us less useful to Him. Pride blackens the soul and if it goes unchecked, it can lead to the hardening of the heart that condemns those who refuse to accept anything greater than them.

Potty Mouth (Catholic) game



This game is free, however it is only to be used for classroom and personal use. It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit. Reproduction or retransmission of any materials, in whole or in part, in any manner, is not permitted.





Potty Mouth: Using the Lord’s name in vain is like fingernails scrapping down a chalkboard. God hears us when we take his name in vain and it must break his heart when his name is used in such a manner. This game focuses on how we sometimes do not have respect for God and God’s name.



Place your marker on START. Players roll the die and move their marker that many spaces indicated on the die. If you land on the picture of a toilet plunger, things have backed up and you must back up 2 spaces. Land on the toilet paper, you lose a turn. If you land on the picture of the toilet brush the player to your left draws a card and reads it out loud. On each card is a question about the 2nd commandment: Thou shall not use the Lord’s name in vain (Catholic). If you answer the question correctly, you stay where you are. If you are not correct, you must move to the urinal for having a potty mouth. On your next turn you are asked another question and you cannot move off the urinal until you answer a question correctly. If you answer a question correctly, you may resume your position on the game board. If a player lands on a picture of a toilet bowl cleaner, they must change places with the player that is positioned last on the game board. The first player to FINISH wins.


Directions- Print out Directions and cut out. Glue on front of file folder.
