Non-competitive Party Games & Activities for ChildrenBook - 1996
Traditional competitive games may be great for winners, but what about the "losers"? The 45 games here are entertaining, and everybody wins every time, with goofy hunts, fun activities, and creative crafts. They'll love to "fish" for treasure with a magnetized "fishing rod", dig for "dinosaur bones", or decipher a treasure map to find the hidden chest. Each game is complete with instructions, appropriate age levels, length of time for the activity, materials needed, what to do before the party, plus approximate preparation time and helpful hints. Another bonus -- almost every activity teaches skills such as counting and coordination, and almost every one can also be played alone by a parent and child. Helpful charts in the back point out psychological benefits of each game. Get in on the fun by making homemade prizes or choose from a suggested list of over 100 prizes you can find in most grocery stores. With all these great ideas, your child's party is guaranteed to be a success!
