Introduction
"Let's play a game!" Preteens love to hear these words. But what games will you play? Preteens aren't children-so they may not like to play children's games. And they may want to play some games from a youth games book, but the point might go over their heads. What to do?
You're holding the answer in your hands-The Ultimate Book of Preteen Games! Games designed just for preteens. More sophisticated than children's games, but not as complex as many youth games-the perfect answer!
The Ultimate Book of Preteen Games has nine types of games:
Clumpbreakers: Easy-to-prepare and quick crowdbreakers for any size group.
Clumpbuilders: Fun games to help preteens get to know each other better.
Bible-in-Me Games: Engage preteens in familiar Bible stories using these fun and
creative games.
Games for Little Clusters of Preteens: A variety of games perfect for group of ten
or less.
Games for Big Bunches of Preteens: Use these games with groups of twenty or more.
Quiet Games: Challenge preteens' thinking and creative abilities with these games.
Wild & Wacky Games: Looking for really wild games? Look no further!
Games for Special Days: Fun games for holidays and other special days.
On-the-Road Games: Pile your preteens into a van or bus and head down the road
playing these travel games.
