Every member of the school community feels a sense of gloom when the sky turns grey and it starts to rain.
Children can become so restless, excitable and edgy.
However, with some creative forethought, wet playtimes can be full of fun and games, helping children to relax and enjoy themselves and making sure that nobody is at a loose end.
This booklet is full of lively and exciting games to delight and entertain children. Designed to stimulate a spirit of cooperation and healthy interaction, there are games to suit lots of different moods and interests.
There are mind games where children can pit their wits against an opponent and physical games for letting off steam.
There are also games of chance to help children understand that it's not about winning and losing, but playing the game and having fun with their friends.
