These activities and games have been collected (and reworked for cooperative play) by the founder of Family Pastimes, a well-regarded manufacturer of exciting cooperative games for children.
Play almost anywhere, with little or no equipment, with just a few or many players. Children will join in with enthusiasm, once the pressure of competition is off. Games include clear instructions and good presentation suggestions.
All these games emphasize working together so the whole group “wins.” For example, in Frogs on the Pond (cooperative musical chairs), all the “frogs” cooperate to fit onto one lily pad.
Games are for small and large groups. Though the emphasis is on younger players there’s something for all ages through junior high. Paperback, 56 pages.
