Great Group Games for Kids
Building on the popularity of the best-selling Great Group Games, this new collection for the younger set shows teachers and group leaders how to make even the silliest activity meaningful. Complete with details on timing, supplies, set up, and suggested group size, this is the perfect grab-and-go resource for anyone working with elementary school age children. Far from frivolous, each ‘play with purpose’ game concludes with discussion questions to build positive identity, friendship skills, and a host of other character traits kids need to succeed.

“Ragsdale and Saylor have done it again…and just in time. As children today tend to drift farther from humanistic play, the experiential, hands-on content of Great Group Games for Kids entices them back from the brink of button-pushing isolation. Purposeful play once again trumps electronic recreation. Well done, ladies. ” Karl Rohnke, Author of Silver Bullets
“These team-building games would be great for classes, scout troops and church groups!” Janet, Youth Services Librarian
“This is a great resource for any adult who has occasion to interact with a group of kids who might need a quick game to either get their focus, keep their focus, or get them playing together. There are 150 games listed, and they vary from icebreakers to relay races to art games to large space games and even games with water balloons or marshmallows.” The Magazine for Homeschool Families
