This is not something I'm very good at. I'm full of ideas, and I've got loads of just started, or partly finished, or nearly there projects.
But this week I finally got finished a game I've been working on. Getting something finished really helps psychologically. It's not hanging over you, and you can now get on with the next thing.
I made it originally for my Sunday School class, to go with the Joseph in Egypt/prison story - but put a lot more work into it than I would usually put into a SS activity, because I thought it was the sort of thing others might like to buy. Certainly my wee ones enjoyed it - we'll be playing it again.
I've put it up for sale as a download on Teachers Pay Teachers. As it's an American site I did both a UK and a US version. That was interesting - different paper size, different instructions ('cardstock' instead of 'card'), different words ('back yard' instead of 'garden') and a few different pictures (no school uniform, red barn instead of highland cottage).
The blurb:Where is God? Is he in church? In your bedroom? Under the sea? At school? In space?
This game shows that God is everywhere!
Players move about a grid, turning over cards. The player who turns over the "God is everywhere!" card is the winner.
For two or more players.
Age 4-11 – can be played with different levels of complexity.
Takes about 5 minutes, but can be played over and over. Can be used as a time filler or for a main activity.

- A numbered spinner (or use a dice)
