Jennifer from Crafolic is a creative mom of 9 children who works diligently to instill the faith in her children. One way she does so, is to create games or activities to help her children make the connection in a hands-on way. Recently she sent me her latest game called Journey's End to review. I did with my family and blogged about it HERE. This is an active game that involves lessons on sin, grace that comes through confession and eternal destinations. The players pick a card during each stop and do as the card indicates (i.e. you've committed a venial sin, walk forward with one hand over your eye or you've gone to confession and are now in a state of grace). The last stop is when the player picks the "At Death" card and the player does as the card states and ends up in Heaven, Purgatory or Hell.
This game was a great way for spontaneous conversations to develop about sin and how it affects our souls. I highly recommend this game for teaching faith formation to children.
You're in luck! She has offered one game as a giveaway on my blog Rosarymom. Head on over there and leave me a comment for a chance to win Journey's End. The winner will be picked on Friday, March 16th.
Or if you're interested in getting ideas for creative yet simple Catholic crafts, Jennifer has many of them to check out! I'm always heading on over to her blog in search of ideas on how to teach the faith to my son as well as my first graders.
