88 Games BONUS Content

Pastor Karl tells about this new resouce in KidminTalk #129!

This is your home for BONUS content for the 88 Games with 8 Objects Game Book available in the Kidology Store.


Nicki Straza's 88 Games with 8 Objects book is amazing! It is one of the most practical and creative books I’ve ever seen. But I shouldn’t be surprised, because it comes from one of the most practical and creative children’s pastors I know!

This book will provide you hours of games you can play with your kids. The way the book is organized is pretty cool, too. Don't miss the cool #hashtag feature in the PDF. You can search any of the key #hashtags to jump to just the right idea! Teaching on Cooperation? Just use your Find tool and search for #cooperation - and POOF, you find games that require kids to cooperate with each other.

Leaders and teachers everywhere will be using this book to better connect with kids, enhance their lessons, and simply have more fun teaching! Suitable for use in church, schools, homeschool, clubs, and anywhere else kids play games! Subjects can include Bible, math, science, history, English, or any other subject you need to review, practice, or otherwise engage the kids in. The games are theologically neutral so they can be used in any environment, whether a church or a public school.

This page is where we will post additional information and instructions for the games, and in time, videos of the games in action!
