101 Playground Games is a collection of active and engaging school playground games for kids. It offers enriching activities and traditional games to encourage active learning and social development among younger children at playtime.

The school playground plays a crucial role in developing all aspects of children’s behaviour and interpersonal learning. Yet there is a growing awareness that children today do not play in the same sociable ways as previous generations.

This resource provides a practical toolkit of ideas to promote lively and enjoyable games. It draws on traditional games and also introduces a wealth of new ones including:

  • chasing and catching games
  • skipping games and rhymes
  • singing and dancing games
  • parachute games
  • quiet games
  • circle games
  • cooperative games
  • games from around the world.


We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
