About us

β€œFun and Games.org” was established as an online resource in 1999 for anybody looking for ideas, games and things to do for children, youth, parties and events. The site originally just specialised in the traditional and contemporary group or playground games played by children, youth and adults, but has broadened to include interesting uses of technology in games. The old site is still in the process of being transferred as each game and activity (and there were hundreds of them) need to be written as individual blog style posts to take advantage of the categorisation and tagging for searching.

Kit has worked with youth in both voluntary and paid sectors for over 30 years (he tells his son he’s 150 πŸ™‚ ), starting when he was 15 and helping out with a summer scheme at a local church who were looking for help. As his parents put it, he was never seen again… at least that summer. Much of his youth work has been voluntary and has included running children’s projects at university (‘North Hull Kids’ a HUSSO Student Community Action project at the University of Hull), and then taking over FISH Club at Ewell United Reformed Church.

Kit splits his time now between looking after his own family, working as a Learning Technology Fellow at the UCL Knowledge Lab for the UCL Institute of Education and a professional photographer (Kit Logan Photography). He also does the cooking πŸ™‚

Jan 2016 – A major site crash forced me to take down the old site and reload a new copy without the ‘old’ site. It’ll encourage me to update it more often now.

    Can’t find Sock Puppet Charades. All stores seem to be out.
    Any ideas?

    Thank you.

      Never heard of the game until you mentioned it. The game was produced by ‘Marbles: The Brain Store’, which no longer lists it and also appears to be in the process of closing down, judging by the big ‘closing sale’ notices posted on its site. If you want an original version of the game I’d be inclined to put on an eBay search ‘watch’ list and see if anything comes up. However, the game is described as charades using sock puppets with some props the sock puppets can pick up and use as well (the sock puppets had a couple of holes you can put your thumb and little finger through to act as arms. It doesn’t sound that hard to make a couple of sock puppets yourself, find some props and also to create a list of words. If anything the hardest part is not the materials, but generating a list of words you could reasonably act out using a sock puppet and props. However, emotions like sad, happy, angry, love, joy, etc or actions like run, skip, cook, play. Need to think of age of players and limitations of sock puppets (eg not able to portray facial emotions).
