August Sharing Time Week 3 & 4

These weeks are my absolute favorite of this month. I saw the theme at the beginning of July and knew that this week(s) is going to be awesome! How wonderful to be able to teach the kids that answers to prayers do come!
This game goes along with  the game Candyland.

* I will be available to answer questions/send material until Saturday 10:30pm MST, both weeks. I will not be answering any emails or comments on Sundays so please don't be upset when I respond on Monday.
Please note there are no refunds for anything digital in the Etsy shop. Please email with questions. Thanks!

Please read the "Item Details" (writing under the preview) in Etsy if you have questions on how to play or how to assemble, I have written out everything, please let me know if you have questions!

$3.00 USA
- 28x22 "game board" (size of standard white poster) divided into 8x11 pages
- colored squares to make your own board
- 3 board "mover" pieces
- scenario "stickers" to add to the board
- 12 stories/scenarios where prayers are answered/not answered.
- 1 deck with cards to draw (will need to be printed as many times has you'd like)



Tape/put together your game board, and cut out the draw cards, glue the "scenario" stickers onto the squares you'd like. Strategically, shuffle the cards so you can make sure to get through the scenarios you like. Include scenarios of both a prayer being answered and no answered as same aren't answered right away.

When a kid gets onto a scenario, have their partner or you read the card after each card ask, "how was this prayer answered? After a few of the stories, ask the kids, "have you noticed anything about the answers to the prayers? Are they all answered the same way?

How to play:
Separate the kids into teams, each team in turn will draw from a draw pile (strategically "shuffle" the cards so you get to the ones you want to) and put their team's "mover" onto the correct color. On the board, you could also write "lose a turn", "go back to start", etc to make the game more "game-like". When the movers land on the scenario cards. Read the story and ask questions about how the prayers were/weren't answered. Maybe ask if any of the kids have a similar experience.
