Description:     

Waldorf Games Handbook for the Early Years; Games to Play & Sing with Children aged 3–7 is a handy guide to playing games with young children. This classic game book offers a handy resource for parents, teachers, forest-school educators, and play leaders. The games are tried and tested and draw on worldwide Steiner and Waldorf-inspired education, in which the “work” of children is their play. Child development is explored and how this is aided by a rich treasury of games—action, finger, circle, clapping, beanbag, chasing, water, tumbling, story, and singing games. Includes both traditional favorites and new games created to engage with challenging behavior.

Each game is clearly and simply described, with diagrams and drawings showing how to play. The games weave rhythms, movement, songs, stories, and pictures and invite children into worlds of vibrant wonder.

These games help children feel at ease in their bodies, build relationships and enjoy playing.
