This book is aimed at physical education teachers and recreation leaders. The games in this book have been designed, so that children cooperate rather than compete against each other, eliminating any fear of failure. The games aim to build confidence and encourage inclusion, cooperation, empathy and fun. Games are versatile and adaptable, need little or no equipment and are inexpensive to run. The "rules," of the specific games need not be strictly adhered to, allowing readers the flexibility to work out their own goals. The games do not have to be restricted for use with children, but are useful as a basis for teambuilding activities with sport teams, business groups, work teams and older students.
