  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…

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!!!

  1. What a great resource! I could always use help with ideas of how to fill the gaps. My mind usually draws a blank at those moments.

  2. I cannot count the times in my week that this would come in handy. Seems like a parenting/child-care-taking essential!

  3. My crew would LOVE that. Any spare moment in the car or waiting for an appointment, they’re always asking for a new game. Count us in, please!

  4. This looks like a wonderful way to learn new ways to fill those short snippets of time (instead of another game of I-Spy!)

  5. Looks like something we could use for our youth. Always spend the week trying to think up some new game.

  6. I would really like that book, but I don’t know why I can’t leave a comment on your blog.
