What do you know about what the church teaches?
(by Robin Segovia Perry, Georgia Ward)

Each question cards I made on a half sheet of paper sized and "laminated" them with clear contact paper.

Each card had their category on one side and the other side I used double stick tape to adhere the question. I adhered the questions after I "laminated" so they questions could be changed based on the theme of the year.

I made a huge dice out of a 12 X 12 approx. sized box. My box was not quite square 12 X 11 1/2 but did not make a difference. I spray painted the box black, cut out white circles, used double stick tape to adhere white circles to box and then covered with clear contact. The box got a little crushed on the corners but held up rather well.

We are planning on using this game on the 5th Sunday during the upcoming year. We had the missionaries come in to be helpers for the junior primary.

 My experience with this game (Conny Hillgaard):

I made the category cards a little different than Segovia did, but still on a half sheet of paper BUT with a picture beside the text. This made it easy for the younger children to know which category we had landed on. Afterwards I laminated all the papers. I then hung some notes down from the sealing. On the back of them, I wrote different songs (those from the list below). When we landed on “singing time” a child came forward a choose a note. We then sang the song written on the backside.

Before we started the game, one child noticed: There is not a card saying: “goal”. I said: no, because we will never be done learning.

I like this game, because we have both junior- and senior primary together. When junior primary children can't focus anymore they can be excused. BUT: they stayed the whole time... We came through the game board twice. It took about 40 minutes.

The children LOVED this game, and so did the adults - they wanted to go on playing.

I hope you will gain as much from this game as I have. Use the questions here - or make your own. Many of the questions are also made by Segovia. Thanks again Segovia for making such a great game.

Conny Hillgaard.
