More fun and games

Anthony Dowson’s 2005 book, Fun and Games, was a big hit with teachers, coaches and all activity leaders who work with children.

In this new book he continues to promote the premise of the original, that children’s physical activity games need to be fun and creative as well as developmentally sound.

But it doesn’t stop there. For each of the 100 new games there is a pop-out box that highlights the skills and fitness components the game will help develop.

The games are easy to set up, require minimal equipment and come with suggestions for adapting the games to suit not only the size of the group but also its skill level.

By developing the technical skills they need in order to succeed in sports, children will also develop greater self-confidence and enjoy their sport participation all the more.
