LDS Activity Days / Primary Mad Gabs

Tuesday, March 29, 2016

My new calling at church is an Activity Days leader and we rotate planning the activity - my first turn was on March 9th. I like combining everyone together and I knew I wanted to play some kind of game. I did a Pinterest search and found ideas for LDS Scattergories, Family Feud, Jeopardy, Pictionary, Cranium and.... Mad Gabs! Winner winner chicken dinner. I found a "D&C Scripture Mastery" version and even printed, cut out, and folded them, all ready to go. But the more I thought about it, the more I think they were too advanced for the 8-11 year olds. So... I made my own! These Mad Gabs are perfectly suited for primary aged children for a sure-to-be-hysterical night of straight up fun and takes about 20 minutes to play. Here is just one page of 7 so you can get an idea of some of the phrases:

Testing it out:

 It was a success from the feedback I heard from parents!

CLICK HERE to go to dropbox and download the 8 page PDF file I created. The first page has the rules and the other pages have a total of 56 cards. The red cards are the answers, the blue cards next to them are what you say out loud. When you print them be sure to select FIT TO PAGE on 8.5x11 standard printing paper or the edges will get cut off. You can either cut them up and glue the cards together back-to-back, or trim and fold.

Have fun!
