| | Re: Games for small groups?
my best advice: use kids competitiveness to your advantage. give them points because they love it, but if you need to, rig the games, so the crying kid doesn't come last, and feels good about it. if you have to, make sure that they all have an equal score at the end, and are all winners, but don't baby them, and encourage them to grow up in a subtle way... sometimes it takes a few lessons.
hope that helps!
