Take Your Kids on a Great Adventure!

TGAcards1

Last Saturday night I had so much fun getting ready to launch The Great Adventure Cards on Sunday. I mixed up the cards, put up the poster that shows all of them, and got ready to introduce them in children’s church. It was a HIT! Kids earn these cards these cards for coming to church, bringing their Bible, inviting a friend, and rewards for participating – answering questions, games, etc. They can compare the cards they got the poster and work to collect series. Once they complete series, they can win small prizes if they can answer the simple questions on the cards. This requires them to look up the Bible verses which gets them into the Word of God. I love visiting homes and seeing bundles of Bible trading cards on the kitchen table next to a Bible! Parents love them too. Here is a video I filmed Saturday Night that shows the cards and explains it a little more: Soon your kids will be enjoying collecting these as much as the kids at my church!

Super Bible Bowl is Back and UPDATED!

SBB-collage_vert

There are nearly 24,000 Zone Posts on Kidology.org with ideas, lessons, crafts, games and more. One of the most popular for years has been my Super Bible Bowl. It is actually the 282nd Zone Post – so that tells you how far back it goes! (It was first published in 2003, but created long before that.) As I was reviewing it recently I realized it was still made up of OVERHEAD PROJECTOR slides since I created it so long ago. Who uses those anymore? So all the graphics were portrait instead of the landscape format we use today. It was time to update! I updated the images, the lesson, tweaked the rules, and even included all the Bible trivia questions you need so you don’t have to collect those to play. It includes: Illustrated lesson on sharing the Good News of Jesus, using the game of football as an object lesson. All needed graphics for a giant football playing board. Posters with the rules for easy reference. PowerPoint to go along with the lesson. Complete rules to the Kidologist’s fun, interactive game of Bible Football. A collection of PDF files to download and print for both the lesson and the …

Johnny Magic BOX OPENING!

johnnymagickit_md

I’ve known Johnny Magic for many years. I’ve performed with him, highly recommended him, and learned from him as well. I like to joke that I want to be more like him when I grow up, except he is younger! So you can imagine how excited I was when Johnny Magic created a Magic Kit for kids! However, this is much more than just another magic kit. In addition to amazing tricks presented in a very cool case where kids can store them, it also includes an app with video instruction, another with background music and sound effects and yet another that is a super cool ticket scanner for your child’s show. (all free!) Beyond all that, Johnny includes training that will help kids learn how to be a great performer or presenter whether they use magic or another creative art. So when my son’s kit arrived in the mail – we made it an event and filmed the UNBOXING! Enjoy! Order yours TODAY! What a fantastic Christmas or Birthday Present! P.S. You can listen to Johnny explain the Magic Kit and the idea behind it on my latest podcast.
