This engaging book is a truly flexible resource, suitable for all ages and abilities. It contains a wide variety of games that may be played in many different settings. Being involved in these special games will help to uplift the players, make them feel part of a team and allow them to release energy safely, enabling them to calm down.

The book's split-design allows teachers and facilitators to rapidly plan appropriate and exciting sessions tailored to each group's needs on every occasion. Choose from a wide range of games in 3 categories: warm-up, more interactive/energetic, and calming. Each game may be played in less than five minutes, and any combination may be used to make a rewarding session. For players, these games are often the highlight of the school day.

These games will:

  • develop cognitive skills as well as boost emotional literacy and self-esteem,
  • promote co-operation, positive interaction and enjoyment in the company of others,
  • gain participants attention quickly, and calm down a fractious group with ease.
