There is nothing that gets the ball rolling like the perfect game... literally!

Kids love games. As one that works with kids, I love using the right game at the right time to help raise the energy level of the class, get the kids involved and help to take the lesson in a different direction. However, finding the right games can be difficult, but not impossible if you know where to look.

Although there are many more sites like this out there, I have found some that I continue to visit when I am looking for game ideas.

This site has a wealth of knowledge and there are literally hundreds of game ideas available for members and the best part is that you can search for them by topic. Members have submitted many of the games so the list is always growing. The time you save is worth the cost of membership.
