Overview

Even as babies are beginning to crawl, toddlers are learning to speak, and preschoolers are starting to cooperate with playmates, they can begin to discover God’s Word and God’s world through play.

Each game in 101 Great Games for Infants, Toddlers & Preschoolers includes a Scripture passage, a teaching point, a supervision tip, materials-needed list, and game instructions. A number of games also include a bonus idea or a bonus tip for how to play the game in a different way. A Scripture index and a topical index provide information on locating games that tie into specific Scriptures and teaching points. Half of the games in this book feature Old Testament stories and teachings; the other half come from the New Testament.

Infants and toddlers can surprise us and teach us as much as preschoolers can. Young children have a way of showing busy adults how to slow down and marvel at the fact that "apples are red, and water is wet."
