We have moved this to a different area of preparedness.
Watch for the "Bug Out Bag" in the

We will be making a new game each week.

Today's Game:
Popsicle Stick . . . Go Fish!
You will need:
A printed copy of the game pieces;
Laminated and cut into squares.
48 Wooden Popsicle Sticks
Double Sided Tape
A Canvas Bag
(I found mine at Hobby Lobby, but you can find them at
any craft or hobby store and they're super cheap.)
Laminated Game Instructions
(Check back in a second . . . my camera battery is dead
so I can't put the pictures on yet.)
Having the pieces on sticks makes it a lot easier for
little hands to hold!
I also made a set on tiles.
Here's the PDF File for the smaller set:

I am not part of your ward but I have really enjoyed following this website. You have some great ideas that I have done. Would you please send me a copy of the games pieces. I couldn't see the link on here. Thanks!

I'm so glad you reminded me to put the "Go Fish" pieces on the blog. . .yesterday got a little CrAzY and I totally forgot. Hope this helps!
Thanks for the heads-up!
