Giveaway: Win a Copy of Great Group Games on the Go, Bust Summer Boredom!

When bloggers Ann Saylor and Susan Ragsdale aren't busy doling out parenting advice, stories, and insights on the ParentFurther blog, they're writing best-selling books for youth group leaders, teachers, and parent educators. Their latest creation, Great Group Games on the Go, is based on their best-selling book Great Group Games, and features 50 of their most popular group games printed on colorful cards for easy, on-the-go fun.

We love these games because they can be played by youth and adults together. They are perfect for rainy days (or even ordinary days) to use in situations where you want to help a group develop relationships and build skills through play. Whether you're a parent leading a scout troop, a camp leader, or a classroom educator, your group will surely benefit from these energizing and FUN games! And what's even better about these games is that they're all based on Search Institute's 40 Developmental Assets framework--the 40 qualities , values and experiences youth need to grow up to be successful, healthy, and caring adults.
