Aims to facilitate a mindful approach to playing self-esteem games by bringing together some of the theory of self-esteem and play and combining this with guidelines for playing a range of non-competitive games. Seeks to supplement other strategies that facilitators are already using in order to contribute to an integrated approach to help 5 to 11 year-olds build, maintain and reinforce healthy self-esteem. Combines games that are physically active and passive, verbal and non-verbal and therefore accessible for children with speech/language difficulties or physical disabilities.
