I've had the pleasure recently of meeting (via the internet) Dan Gonzalez who has a great set of cards and an app for apple and android devices that deal with Catholicism. He's a new advertiser on my website and he also asked if I'd be willing to review his Catholic Words Memory Match card game. He graciously sent me both volumes of his game and I can say that I am impressed with the quality of them.
Each deck has 26 pairs of cards with Catholic words on them. There is also a .pdf available that has the definitions of the words so that you (if need be) and your kids can learn the proper definitions.
The cards are designed to be used in a matching game by 1 to 5 people.
We opted for the "1" route. My youngest has played this and enjoyed it. The cards are very sturdy and colorful. They will definitely catch the attention of your children!
Even though Mr 10 yo knew the words, he still enjoyed playing the game. I think this would be a great way to teach your budding Catholic students all of the important words of the faith.
For those of you who are into electronic ways of teaching, Dan also has a Catholic word app that looks very cool. I haven't tried it, but I think the Catholic Spell It looks like it might be particularly useful.
So while you're planning for summer activities, or for next school year, you might want to consider getting yourself either the card game or the app, or maybe even both. While Dan sent these to me to review, it doesn't mean I had to like them, so when I give my endorsement to something, you can be assured that I really did enjoy it. I hope you'll consider supporting Dan in his endeavor to bring the Catholic faith to families in new and fun ways.
