Format: Paperback
Most activities in this book are only appropriate for very young children. I am a fan of Barbara Sher's other books so I bought this without browsing it first. Many of the '300' activities are chants with various words. For example: "we've all got a name, first and last, tell us your name and we will laugh". Another activity is to let the child smell food flavorings. Fun stuff if you're 3 but there isn't much for an 8 year old.

Wonderful book for parents, teachers, baby-sitters, etc. Gave the Hebrew edition (available in Israel) to a friend who enjoyed using it to entertain the children on a trans-atlantic flight. I highly reccomend this book and others by Barbara Sher, including "Extrodinary Games with Ordinary Things"

This is a great book to be able to grab when you need an activity. One thing that I really enjoy about B. Sher's activities is that the are low prep. and you know that anything you find in her book will be of value to the children.

Being a teacher myself, I need to handle plenty of teens everyday. This book allows me to build a bond with them and also see them grow and learn with each activity. Very useful book to use.
Waste of money Oct. 3 2012

I was so disappointed in this book. I was hoping to have some great games to choose from to use in my classroom guidance lessons and with groups. Out of 300 "games" not one is something I can actually use for this purpose. They aren't games...one is to draw a letter on someone's back and see if they can guess what it is. Even if I could only use 10%, it would have been worth the purchase, but I don't think I'll be using any.
