Get back to basics with Indoor and outdoor activities for young people aged 10-14 yearsGood play opportunities give children the chance to explore, examine, experiment and think whilst they are having fun. Sticks and Stones offers a range of exciting ideas for challenging play activities which enhance young people's play - indoors and outdoors.The book has been written so that adults can develop the activities with young people or young people can use the book for ideas to develop themselves. All the activities have been successfully tried and tested with young people aged 10-14 in various settings and we have found that the activities often open young people's imaginations to explore these and related ideas further in their own way.The activities in Sticks and Stones:· are fun · mostly require minimal planning and preparation· are fully illustrated· describe what you need, how you can do it and where it can lead· can be used to develop valuable skills from fire lighting to using tools safely · contain practical tips and flag health and safety points· provide opportunities for young people to develop, play and learn at their own pace· include 'snapshots' of how other groups have experienced the activity· include 'spotlights' to support adults in thinking about their approach to working with young people in a play or childcare setting.This book is part of the Can Do Series, an essential resource for all those who work with children from birth to 14 years in out of school settings including:· childcare centres· drop-in centres · after-school clubs· playschemes or playbuses· play centres · family centres · in the home
