Enjoyable Fun for Preschoolers Dec 18, 2003
I received this book to use for our AWANA club. It's divided up into five sections. The first section has 30 "Welcome" games to help kids get to know one another. The next three sections are divided up between quiet time games, medium-energy games, and active games. There's a final section made up of songs. Some of the games are simple (ball games, balloon games, Bible character games, singing games). Others will take personal time at home to make before they can be played with (cut outs of animals, game boards, game pieces). So far we have played about 50 of these games and the kids have enjoyed them. There were only about 2 that didn't go over well, but we quickly moved on to the next game, and the kids didn't seem to mind. I had difficulty with the several of the songs - either the words didn't go with the rhythm or I'm just not very musical. :o) Overall, I think the kids enjoyed the majority of the games we've played and that's what counts. There are cute illustrations throughout the book that give you an idea how some of the games are done. The titles to the games are big and bold, and the parts you need to say out loud are in bold letters in the paragraphs (very nice feature).
I would have given it a higher rating if the book had been a little better organized. I would have liked it better if the games had been categorized under each section. For instance, under Quiet Time games, I would have like it better if the games would have been listed as Number Games, Bible Character games (some have the names in the title), Shape Games, Color Games, Music/rhythm Games, etc., and how much prep time some of them take, otherwise I had to read through each and every game to decide whether I had time to do them, or if it was the one that would fit the lesson we were teaching that night.
Overall, the games are creative, fun, and emphasize God, Jesus, Bible characters and events while helping children become familiar with them in a hands-on way.
