To learn the name of the 12 Disciples I learned a version of the following song as a child. For me, that stuck.
12 disciples activities
But I know not all kids like to sing. So when I was preparing our next Sunday School Lessons I decided to prepare a 12 disciples game for kids to learn the names of the 12 Disciples: Simon Peter, Andrew, James, his brother John, Philip, Thomas, Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, Thaddeus, Simon, Judas, and Bartholomew.
Start by printing the 4 pages in color on cardstock and cut apart (You may also want to laminate them for durability). Now make 4 rows of 6 cards in each (2 cards of each of the disciples).
On your turn turn over two cards. If they match, you keep them and go again. If not turn them back over and it is the next persons turn.
I suggest having the kids say the name of the disciples out loud as they turn them over so they can learn most effectively!
