Catholic Games to Create
Feed My Sheep
"Do you love me?...Feed my sheep." John 21:17
This is a toss game. The kids can stand behind a line and tossed the grass into the circle to feed the sheep.
This was made with a stuffed sheep, wire ring, and foam balls wrapped with green felt. The felt ends were cut into strips to resemble grass.
St. Isidore Produce Sorting
Using small wooden crates, plastic play fruit and veggies, and a basket, create a sorting game!
The kids can organized the produce by putting/throwing red produce in the box labeled red, yellow produce in the box labeled yellow...etc.
-- Younger kids could take the basket of produce to the wooden crate and sorted them.
-- Older kids tossed the produce into the correct box.
St. Anthony Seek-it Game
This game is fun for young and old!! The game players search through the beads in the container to find items, but they are not allowed to open the container!! It was addicting fun for everyone!
I made this using a large clear container, melting craft beads, and items to find.
You might be able to use a soda bottle, but a large jar with a wide mouth works best. The larger opening allows you to put larger items in. A large peanut butter jar might be good.
I filled the container half full of beads and I added items to find. I wrote down what the ltems were as I put them in the container. I used things like charms and jewelry pins, fancy buttons, stationary supplies, craft supplies, sea shell, etc. Once you have everything in, seal the jar shut with tape or glue.
I added about 60 items, some larger, some small.
I made a check list of the items so the kids could see if they found everything.
This was a hit among the older kids!
