Wow. Kris Bordessa has all the bases covered here. I've had this book for a couple years now, and I've used some of the activities from time to time. Last week I held an "indoor beach day" for my students and used the physical activities from the book--we all had so much fun! The students, all high school juniors, explored these challenges and honed their communication and collaboration skills at the same time.

Bordessa divides the tasks up to make it easy to find something appropriate for the situation. Small ice-breaker activities, building competitions, and more offer a wide range of possibilities so that students never have to face the same challenge twice.

The only request I would make would be for a sequel!
Planning church youth group activities can be a real challenge. Especially if you want to keep games fun and fresh week after week.

There are a lot of helpful gaming books on the market and even some good websites, but I've been frustrated by weaknesses many of these resources seem to share: many activities do not work well for small groups; many games involve embarrassing or inappropriate physical contact between genders; many games lack creativity and seem to just repackage the same concept into a thousand different variations; and some games breed an overly-competitive spirit which stifles godly, edifying relationships.

In Team Challenges, the author pools her years of experience in 4-H and other youth programs into a helpful book of "easy-to-implement activities that will keep kids laughing, having fun, and learning the benefits of teamwork, all at the same time."

I'm a school librarian, and I lent a copy of this book to a couple of teachers at the school, and they are both going nuts for it. The book has a wide variety of activities - some are "thinking" activities like word games, and one teacher is planning to use them when she needs to keep her students occupied for a few minutes. She is so excited to have a bunch of resources other than Mad-Libs! Then there are team challenges that involve solving some sort of problem together using materials. And also there are challenges that are perfect large-motor-skills activities for when kids need to burn off some energy.

The activities can be used (or modified) for a wide range of ages. I can see this book becoming a favorite resource for teachers, scout leaders, homeschooling parents, pretty much anyone who works with kids. Some of the activities would even be perfect for birthday parties.

The author has worked with kids for years and it really shows. This is a perfect gift... Read more
