Circle Games & Why?

Attention: parents, teachers, librarians, camp counsellors and ECE – be prepared with a handy repertoire of circle games to play! At school, at home, at camp and on summer vacation – these are just some of the places that circle games will come in handy! Why? What is the benefit? Circle games bring your group together; build attention, focus, and listening skills; teach problem solving skills; and nurture empathy and imagination. Circle games can be thoroughly enjoyed by babes in arms, and children and adults of all ages and abilities!

Want to learn more? Watch our new DVD, Happy Birthday, Mr. Bear! Or come to The Three Wishes Festival Circle Games Workshop with Kathy Reid-Naiman on June 9! Look for Kathy’s new circle game cd, Here We Go Zodeo! Visit the library or check the internet!
