Encourage Children to Learn About the Saints.
Help children learn some of the symbols of popular female saints as they match name cards to the appropriate symbol cards.
Many saints are identifiable in artwork as well as writings by the use of particular symbols that depict a part of their life or represent them in some way.
Preparation is simple. Print out the pieces then cut them apart. Mix up all of the cards then separate the name pieces from the image cards. Players must match each picture card to its corresponding name card. An answer card is provided for reference.
Game pieces may be easily stored in a brown manila envelope for use at a later time.
The Saints featured in this game include the following women.
St. Brigid of Ireland
St. Gertrude the Great
St. Elizabeth of Hungary
St. Rita of Cascia
St. Therese of Lisieux
