This e-book was written to provide useful ways to keep pupils amused when those inevitable wet playtime breaks occur – when everyone has to remain indoors and fifteen minutes can seem like a lifetime to children, and an eternity to the teacher.

Undoubtedly, play is central to a growing child’s development and has a fundamental role in their lives. It teaches them:

  • About their world and the things in it
  • To integrate with their peers
  • To accept failure as well as success
  • Other ways of expressing their feelings and emotions
  • That they can be whatever they want to be.

This e-book will demonstrate to teachers, and those involved in educating young children, that education can, and should, have an element of fun integrated into it, even during those wet break times. Most of the following games can easily be adapted to suit the age of the children in question. The main thing to remember while doing these activities is that the object is to have fun!

These activities could be done by teaching assistants, lunchtime supervisors, after-school leaders, scout leaders or anyone else working with groups of children. Most of the games can easily be adapted for use throughout the day. You don’t need to wait for a rainy day to use them!
