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.
This game was made using 2-liter bottles with attached Satan pictures and a soft ball. The kids rolled the ball and knocked the 3 evil demons down!
Remind the children that they should never let Satan try to get them to do something bad!
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!
St. Anthony Treasure Hunt
This activity could be used as a fun activity for an All Saint's Day event.
Make one large dig-block or lots of individual blocks!
But please remember it will take a few weeks to dry so plan ahead!

St. Peter - Fisher of Men - Game
This game was made using a cardboard box, which was decorated to look like fish in water.
The download includes the decorations for the box, plus two sets of patterns for the fish that are to be "caught".
One fish set has virtuous actions and virtues written on them: Share, Be kind, Go to Mass, Pray, etc.
The other pattern has plain fish, so you can write your own ideas on the fish. You can add anything you want the kids to learn.
Kids love this simple little game!
Simon Peter Says - Game
This game is played just like "Simon Says" but Simon wears a miter and is called "Simon Peter" in honor of our first Pope. Simon Peter tells the other children to kneel, pray, genuflect, make the Sign of the Cross, lie prostrate, as well as, the normal "Simon Says" commands.
Great simple fun! All you need is a miter (and a white robe if you want to get fancy)! We created a paper miter! And used thick ribbon to decorate it!
