Family Proclamation Game and FHE Blog Hop

Pin It


Looking for a fun way to teach your kids about The Family Proclamation in FHE?

Why not give Family Proclamation Trivial Pursuit a whirl!






As the name implies, you play it just like Trivial Pursuit, even using an old Trivial Pursuit game board that you might have lying around the house! (I bought mine for $1.97 at Goodwill.)  


All you need to do is replace the regular Trivial Pursuit game cards with these Family Proclamation Game cards...



RED: Family Time Together Charades
ORANGE: Family Proclamation Fill-in-the-Blank
YELLOW: Family Discussion Questions
GREEN: Family Proclamation Trivia
BLUE: Family Proclamation ABCs Memorization
PURPLE: Family Proclamation Pictionary

Simply download the question cards that I have created and print them on card stock that corresponds to the colors of the six categories found on any trivial pursuit game board.  
Cut the cards to size and you're in business! 


Play according to regular Trivial Pursuit rules or play each category as separate games to help your family internalize the truths of the Family Proclamation and apply them to your family in a fun new way!

You will find links to all of the card downloads as well as complete game play directions, in the document below.

  11. I am loving this game idea and the cards look great, but I am having a hard time downloading them! I can't copy/paste or click on the links to the card pages from your scribd document page in the post.. If I click on the links where you first mention the color categories, I can get to a scribd page where I can see the cards. But I can't save the document there. If I try to print the page, it makes me "save" the pdf but it only saves some printer jargon junk. Can anyone help me figure out how to download this?? I think this would be great for our family!
