Sunday School Review game

Here’s an activity that I use often and change often. It is simple and easy to access with little ones – ages 3 on up! I call it the Sunday School Review game.

I made a large game board out of craft paper which folds up and out of the way easily. The game area looks like a squiggly donut divided into colorful squares – and the kids had a hand in coloring. There is no beginning or end to this game, the circle is closed. As Sunday School lessons progress, I gather simple questions which I write on small cards – questions like: What is the First Commandment? Who wrote Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures? Share a way you thought about God this week. Sing the first verse of “Shepherd.” – you get the idea. I also have a small stationery box in which I drew a simple 4-square, labeling each square with a number 1 to 4. I gathered several small objects to use as game markers. We have an angel button, a thimble, a heart eraser, etc. The game board, markers, and questions all fit into this box.

When it’s time to play “Sunday School Review” we fold out the game board, take turns tossing a button into the box to see how many jumps we get. Each child picks a question to answer, they jump their markers around the board. There is no beginning or end – kids can jump in where they want. It’s just fun to hop around the board and try to land on a friend’s spot. I included some of the questions I have gathered over the lessons. I change out the questions, add and delete as needed. There is no winning or losing – no real competition – just Sunday School Review!
