Overview

Everyone Wins!: Cooperative Games and Activities by Josette Luvmour, Sambhava Luvmour

This new edition of the best-selling Parent Choice Award-winner Everyone Wins! collects more than 150 cooperative games and activities for enhancing conflict resolution and communication skills and building self-esteem. Encouraging collaboration over competition, activities such as “Spaghetti,” “Rope Raising,” and “Gyrating Reptile” foster team-building and positive group dynamics. With minimum effort and maximum fun, children (and adults) learn to recognize and appreciate each other’s special abilities and take pride in their own.

All of the activities in Everyone Wins! have been thoroughly tested and are graded according to appropriate age level (age 1+ to adult), size of group, indoor or outdoor location, and activity level, and include special hints and variations for group leaders. Where extra materials or props are called for, they are always simple, readily available, and inexpensive.

Brimming with ideas and written in a clear, easy-to-understand style, Everyone Wins! is perfect for educators, parents, group leaders, camp counselors, and anyone who works with children.

Josette and Ba Luvmour created Natural Learning Rhythms, a family-oriented approach to human development, and are co-founders of EnCompass, the first holistic learning center for the whole family. They have written several previous books on family and childhood development, including Win-Win Games for All Ages.
