EWTN is one of the best resources for Catholics and non-Catholics to go to for answers about faith, and they have never failed to amaze me with their awesome content. Recently, I discovered that EWTN has an online game dedicated to help kids learn a little bit more about saints, prayer, the Bible, (church insides) and even the value of life.
I give this interactive game two BIG thumbs up! I was on the site for almost an hour just roaming around and even learning things myself. I enjoyed it so much I made way too many Snapchats about it.
The game is set up as a small Catholic community which includes a church, school, post office, library, and homes.
Your child will be able to click where ever he/she wants to go. I suggest visiting different homes. There they’ll find kids who invite them to see their totally decked out Catholic rooms. In different rooms there are different mini-games your children will be able to play (or if you’re like me, you’ll enjoy as well). From coloring books to learning about the saints, it’s awesome!
But by far my FAVORITE feature is the church:
In the church, your child can learn about the Sacraments.
Oh, and did I mention that they teach you (I… mean your kid) what everything is called inside a church? — I totally knew all those things already..
From the Tabernacle to the name for the mini table where the chalice and paten are placed when not on the Altar; “credence table.” I totally knew that before I played…
Another great feature is the bedroom of baby Grace. Her room, like the others, is adorned with a Crucifix but she has a book titled, “Before I Was Born.” It’s a picture book with some words which is perfect for kids just learning how to read or for read-along time with mom and dad. What I love about the short book is that it shows kids the sacredness of life.
Overall, can you tell that I (a 22 year-old with no children of my own) love this game? The game is perfect for basically any age (including nerdy 22 year-olds), but I really want you to share this great game with your kids or your mom groups as well.
