A walking ‘treasure hunt’ that starts from the main gate of Castlewellan Castle Christian Conference Centre and proceeds around Annesley Garden.
Castlewellan Treasure Hunt
You go, and do likewise.
– Luke 10:37
Jesus’s Parable of the Good Samaritan is recorded in Luke 10. The board game below was inspired by a similar idea I found online here – however I developed my own version from scratch using artwork by Richard Gunther (www.lambsongs.co.nz) which I downloaded from freebibleimages.org.
A black and white version for kids to colour in can be found here:

This year’s puzzle was a Christmas Sudoku – instead of digits 0-9 use the letters of the word CHRISTMAS!
The back cover includes a reminder of the Christmas gift:
And the LORD spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah out upon the dry land.
– Jonah 2:10
For this craft, each kid gets a paper cup with the bottom cut out of it. Cut a balloon and stretch it over the base and sellotape it on. The kids can colour in the template below which can be wrapped around the cup and stuck on. The kids then get a soft ball and a box can be painted as the dry land – the then try and catapult the ball from the whale’s stomach to the dry land.
