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.

  1. Print the cards on heavy paper or card stock and cut them apart.
  2. Shuffle the cards and lay them face down in rows on the table.
  3. The first player turns over two cards so that everyone can see them.
  4. If the cards match, the player keeps them. (Picture 1)
  5. If they don’t match, turn them back over in the same locations. (Picture 2)
  6. Players take turns until all the pairs are matched.
  7. The winner is the player with the most pairs. (Picture 3)

    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!
