Printable “Mothers of the Bible” Game for Sunday School

Children can learn about mothers and children in the Bible by playing a card matching game. Nine Bible families are featured, including a short description of each family that can lead to further conversation about the Bible characters. This game would be fun to play on Mother’s Day or appropriate to accompany a lesson about any of these Bible characters. It is recommended for 2 to 4 players.

    Thank you we had a Mother’s Day banquet but none of the men planned a program so I talked about the lady elect in 2 John then had the adults guess what the mothers name was to the matching cards then after we told them the mothers name after we told them the child’s name before they had to tell me the children of the mother. The adults were not very good I told them they had better come back to my children’s class.

    My Sunday School students enjoy playing the match game. So we are studying the mothers of the Bible each week to learn something about each one and who their children are.

    Thank you for putting this together!
