The Journey's End Game - Teach Kids about the need for Confession
Are you looking for a fun way to teach kids about sin and the need for Confession?
Well I've created a new game to help teach the effects of venial sin, mortal sin, and Confession. It's not a board game, but an active game where the kids walk along the "Life Path" and follow what the cards tell them to do. Along the way they can help the souls in Purgatory. Then at the end of the "Life Path" (at death) they see if their actions on the "life path" are actions that send them to Heaven, Purgatory, or Hell.
This is a game that I created (with some help from my loving hubby) to teach our kids about sin and confession. Our kids loved it. So I shared it with our local homeschool group. The parents and their kids loved it, too.
It's a game designed for 2nd graders and up. Even the homeschooled teens enjoyed this activity! Younger children played, too, but needed assistance. Every one of the kids, young and old, wanted to play this game again and again! It's a perfect game for those who are receiving their First Penance and First Holy Communion, any RE class, youth group, or fun party, like an All Saints Day Party!
So I want to share this fun game as a printable e-file for purchase.
This E-file comes with the instructions, cards, and the signs for heaven, hell, and purgatory.
You need to supply the "Life Path" which could be 3 - 2x4 boards or painters tape, and 2 carry bags with 5 lb. of dried beans, sugar, or any other dry 5 lb. item in each . Also, the bottoms of 5 half gallon milk jugs are used to hold the cards, but this is optional.
This game works best in large groups of about 8 or more kids.
