Check out Peace First for some great games that promote cooperation, communication, and teamwork. Geared toward middle-school children, the games are also fun for adults!
You may already know some of the games, like “Draw what I draw,” “The human knot,” “The humming game,” and “Cup and string.”
Peace First also provides resources to promote peace in schools and the community. The annual Peace First Prize is a $50,000 scholarship and Peace First Fellowship awarded to children and young adults who have demonstrated “small, courageous and transformative acts of peacemaking.”
