All Saints Scavenger Hunt {A Printable Party Game!}

One of the games I made last night, for our party this evening, is an All Saints Scavenger Hunt. Last year we used Charlotte's printable Search for the Saints, and the kids loved it, but I wanted to offer something a little different this year. I have printed 16 saint cards which I will hand out to 16 of the adults. The children will each receive the following list of clues, and they will need to match each clue to the correct saint. Once the child thinks he knows who it is, he will ask the person representing (holding the picture of) the saint. If he is correct the "saint" signs the line next to the correct clue on his child's clue sheet. Here are the clues that my husband and I came up for our game:


  1. This was great! It was fun and the kids loved it. It really is a great way to learn more about the saints too.

  2. Could you include an answer sheet...I would like to use this for my Confirmation 2 students tomorrow.

    1. Here you go! (The saints are actually listed in the saint cards printable in the same order as the matching questions.) Hope this helps:

  3. I'm printing now to use in our homeschool co-op this week! Thanks so much Jessica!

  4. I shared this game on The Diamond Castle Facebook page. The Diamond Castle book, which teaches children from St. Teresa of Avila's, Interior Castle, that their "soul is like a diamond castle" is available through Sacred Heart Books and Gifts. She is a sponsor of the Shower of Roses Blog. Thank you,

  5. I'm so glad I found this blog post! I'm teaching 7th and 8th grade PSR students and was looking for a fun, engaging activity to teach about All Saints Day. Thank you for the wonderful freebies!!

  6. Love this! I have used it several times already.

    One side note: St. Joan of Arc's visions began around the age of 13, but she didn't lead an army until 17-18 years old.

    1. Thank you! My husband put this game together and I probably mixed it up as I was typing it all up... I should try and get it updated...

  7. Do the Saints cards included contain information or just the pictures?

    1. Just the pictures and names. You can find the answers in a comment above.
