This is a resource material that has been developed to encourage participation in practice.
It is a compilation of animation techniques, icebreakers and games that can be used by anyone who is working with a group of people, either in a workshop, in a training group, in a meeting or in the community.
The games that help children to know each other and help to relax are called icebreakers.
When they look sleepy or tired, animation techniques can be used to get them moving and to give them more enthusiasm (stirrers).
Other games can be used to help children think about problems and can help solve problems that people may face when they work together.
Games can also help children to think creatively and laterally.
Although this is a material developed for adult groups, most of the games can be easily adapted to primary or secondary levels.
