Your child's birthday has finally arrived! It's a very special day that your child has been looking forward to for months. Do you want to make their party an unforgettable experience, but fear tears, huffs or howls of fury if another child wins the games? And do some children even refuse to play in the first place from fear of losing? There is much you can do to combat these sorts of mood killers - by carefully selecting the games. The children's good mood is not just down to chance alone, but can be influenced very specifically. While traditional competitive games may provoke an atmosphere of rivalry among the children, non-competitive games reinforce the concept of working together. This book introduces you to both new and well-known games, some of which have been modified slightly to promote harmony among the children. Get to know a wide range of indoor and outdoor non-competitive games ranging from the imaginative and creative, comical and fun-packed to the exciting and adventurous. Lots of cheery black-white-photos illustrate these non-competitive games.
