All Saints Scavenger Hunt {A Printable Party Game!}

by | Oct 31, 2012 | All Hallows Eve, All Saints Day, Party Games, Printables | 13 comments

One of the games I made last night, for our party this evening, is an All Saints Scavenger Hunt. Last year we used Charlotte’s printable Search for the Saints, and the kids loved it, but I wanted to offer something a little different this year. I have printed 16 saint cards which I will hand out to 16 of the adults. The children will each receive the following list of clues, and they will need to match each clue to the correct saint. Once the child thinks he knows who it is, he will ask the person representing (holding the picture of) the saint. If he is correct the “saint” signs the line next to the correct clue on his child’s clue sheet. Here are the clues that my husband and I came up for our game:

    I shared this game on The Diamond Castle Facebook page. The Diamond Castle book, which teaches children from St. Teresa of Avila's, Interior Castle, that their "soul is like a diamond castle" is available through Sacred Heart Books and Gifts. She is a sponsor of the Shower of Roses Blog. Thank you, Thediamondcastleproject.com

    Love this! I have used it several times already.

    One side note: St. Joan of Arc's visions began around the age of 13, but she didn't lead an army until 17-18 years old.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
