Overview

Jam-packed with 200 captivating games, this brightly illustrated collection will make sure that no kid ever whines "I'm bored!" again. Even better, these are zippy, energy-burning activities--not the typical quiet indoor fare. Youngsters will have a blast with scavenger hunts, ball games guaranteed not to break anything, and even a nose-pushing popcorn race. They can test their reflexes with Footsieball (volleyball played with a balloon and one foot) or Hallway Alligator (try to get past the alligator without getting munched). Most of the activities need only minimal set-up time and supplies found around the house. Game variations are included to multiply the fun.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-This compilation of brain games, ball games, pen-and-paper games, etc., provides a good supply of ideas that will appeal to most any player in a variety of circumstances. The activities are suitable for individuals or two or more players. Most of the suggestions require little or no equipment. There are even games to play with an incomplete deck of cards. Instructions are given on where to play, equipment, and the number of players. Most of the colorful, cartoon illustrations decorate the text rather than explain the rules. The index helps sort the games by size of the group. Group leaders will make handy use of these suggestions to fill in their activity programs.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
