Sunday Snippet: 52 Gap Fillers… A Book of Games to GiveAway…

April 15th, 2013 · 38 Comments

Our week of GiveAway Posts continues… I know it has been a while since you had a Sunday Snippet GiveAway… but I am stocked with a pile of them!!! So you can look forward to a few Sunday Snippet GiveAways over the next couple weeks!!! Top of the pile is a book packed with games to play… a book from Day One Publications, by Tirzah L. Jones

If you are a youth group leader or a sunday school teacher or a busy parent or anyone really who has a whole heap of kids to take care of from time to time, then this book is literally an answer to prayer!!!

Se7en + 1 times that you would find this book useful!!!

  1. When you are surrounded by twenty five boisterous sunday school kids waiting for the next activity…
  2. When your teens have to help out at bible club and they really need to have a couple of games up their sleeves…
  3. When you want to keep your house tidy just for five minutes before guests arrive…
  4. When you have a birthday party and eight out of your ten guests have arrived…
  5. When you tell your kids to wash up for dinner, it will be ready in five minutes, and then it isn’t…
  6. When you are stuck in the “stop and go” traffic for hours instead of minutes…
  7. When you have all your kids standing with you in a queue at the post office and it is taking forever…
  8. And the se7en + 1th Thing…

  9. When you on a mountain top in Lesotho with 100 kids waiting for lunch and none of them speak your language…


This book you can literally toss in your bag and go… go… go…

Se7en + 1 Quick and Easy Games to Fill the Gap…

These games are fast and fun; some are rowdy and some are quiet. There really is something for every scenario… The instructions are clear and concise – just a couple of lines worth of reading. The equipment is negligible… some games might need a watch others might need a piece of paper and a pencil. Familiar games with a little twist… rock-paper-scissors vs the leader and losing players get eliminated; Alphabet games… pick a theme and then go: arum lily, baobab, cactus… and then games you might not know like clumps and criss-cross…

I have to say that we have reviewed Tirzah L. Jones books before and they are totally fabulous… I would consider these books to be essential kit for any youth worker, at church, at school wherever. Click on the images to see our previous reviews…

Meanwhile, we have a copy of Gapfillers 52 ways to fill five minutes with children and young people to GiveAway. This GiveAway works in the usual way, comment before the end of this coming Sunday, 28 April 2013, and we will draw and publish the winners the following week. I won’t respond to your comments as I do on our other posts because I don’t want to be included in our own giveaway.

Our GiveAways are open to everyone: If you have won a GiveAway before never fear – enter away. If you live on the far side of the world – enter away. Postage takes forever from here but eventually it should get to you! Good luck and happy commenting!!!


As usual I have to thank Christian Book Discounters, who supply Sunday Snippet GiveAway books for us to review and GiveAway. We are not paid to write our reviews and the opinions expressed are entirely our own.
