Liturgical Year Board Game
by Paolo della Peruta and Anna Maria Pizzutelli; illustrated by Giusi Capizzi
Children learn best through fun experiences, and the Liturgical Year Board Game provides both: it's an exciting game that teaches about the Catholic year in an engaging way that doesn't feel like learning. The Liturgical Year Board Game is perfect for parents and relatives, Catholic school teachers, catechists and DREs of children in 3rd through 6th grade, and middle or high school youth ministers.
Sample challenge from the game:
All the members of the team create or act out a manger scene and sing at least one verse of Silent Night.
A. What are the names of the parents of the Mother of God?
B. In what village did Mary live?
C. What is the liturgical color used on Marian feast days?
D. By whose work did Mary conceive Jesus?
An interactive game that can be played with different player configurations, the Liturgical Year Board Game gives kids an experiential way of learning and remembering the stories, saints, and seasons that make up the Church year.
