With tools such as balls, beanbags, broomsticks, and ropes, parents and teachers can organize dozens of hours of fun and challenging activities for parties, summer camps, neighborhood gatherings, and school groups. Includes active games and quiet games in a range of variations, including counting-out, choosing sides, who's it? and feats and forfeits. Sample games include Bull in the Ring; Cross Tag; Do This, Do That; Kaleidoscope; Lady of the Land; Old Buzzard; Potato Race; and Shadow Tag.
