Gizmo's Bible Adventures
In most families, both parents work. Unfortunately, this means children spend more time alone. Often, they pass their time online and gaming. If you would like a site that offers contests, games, and general information, check out . The site is part of the Christian Broadcasting Network and is geared toward children under the age of 13.

It came to my attention because of a free book, Gizmo’s Bible Adventures: Your New Journey With God. The moment your child professes his or her belief in Jesus as his or her personal savior is as exciting as it is memorable. Meant to provide a spiritual basis in the time period following, this 52 page booklet uses Pixar-style animation along with puzzles and assigned daily Bible verses to assist in growing your child’s Christian foundation. Immediately following day 30 are the answers to the puzzles as well as the text of the Bible verses that were used. The booklet is easy enough for your child to use alone, but would also provide an opportunity for parent-child discussion. It can be downloaded when your child signs-up for a profile at . The fun illustrations and puzzles will appeal to elementary-aged children. The majority of puzzles, used charts to decipher messages. Very young children may have problems completing them on their own; however, with a parent's help, they should prove to be no trouble.

The website offers games. On the game pages, as well as under a “discover” tab, there are links for fun and informative Questions and Answers about relevant topics. By playing the games and entering the contests, your child accumulates “superpoints” which can be used to enter drawings for $25 gift cards to retailers such as Target, Game Stop, McDonalds and Best Buy. In addition, there are video clips with further enhance your child's learning and gaming experience.

It's free to sign-up for a user name and profile and free to use the site. When your child completes the sign-up process, an email is sent to the parent. Check it out. If nothing else, the free devotional is worth the time.
