Let's Get Ready to Jumble!


The classic favorite Jumble puzzles are now available with Bible-based content just for kids! Bible Jumble for Kids by Christopher Hudson, is a great Jumble that relates to a Scripture passage listed on the Jumble page so that kids can read and learn about the Bible verse or story. This book includes a mix of six different types of Jumbles:
  • Traditional Jumbles
  • Mystery Person Jumbles
  • Jumble Detective
  • Jumble Criss-Cross
  • Find the Jumbles
  • Bible Passage Jumbles
Kids and their parents will have fun solving all 200 puzzles while learning more about the Bible.

Since receiving this book, the kids and I have had fun, unscrambling the words based on clues. Then we take the letters of certain words and unscramble them for the answer to the riddle for each jumble. I highly recommend this book for kids 8 and older and some of the clues can be a little challenging. These would be great for vacations, car trips, and daily challenges to make learning about the Bible that much more entertaining. I can also see using these at Sunday School and Vacation Bible School or Camp to add that element of fun to the day. There are 200 puzzles to complete with each one getting progressively more difficult.

Now here is one for adults called Inspirational Zingers Jumble by Christopher Hudson. Just like the kids version this one is geared to adults. Even I had some challenges trying to figure out some of the more advanced jumbles towards the end. These are the perfect way to pass time waiting for the kids, in doctor's offices, or just a way to keep your brain in tip top shape.

Every day, millions of people enjoy Jumbles in newspapers across the country. Now you can enjoy these popular puzzles while being encouraged by inspirational thoughts from the Bible and wisdom from the world’s most successful people. Perfect for families, trivia buffs, and puzzle fanatics, Inspirational Zingers Jumble is packed with six different kinds of puzzles for hours of fun:
  • Jumbles
  • Double Jumbles
  • Mystery Person Jumbles
  • Word Search Jumbles
  • Super Jumbles
  • Criss-Cross Jumbles

I follow you! It's been a long time since I've played a family game but I love all kinds of games. I think Guesstures was the last one I played that I really enjoyed.
