Gymnastics Fun and Games features ready-to-use games and activities to help elementary and middle school physical educators introduce noncompetitive gymnastics into the curriculum safely and effectively. This well-organized reference includes nearly 50 illustrations to guide physical educators in accurately recreating the activity with their students. It also features safety guidelines from the USA Gymnastics Safety Handbook.

Special features include:

- 13 warm-up and stretching games and activities that are also useful as cool-down exercises
- 29 skill-development activities that focus on jumping and landing, balances and poses, body awareness, and movement
- 9 conditioning and endurance activities for children in upper grades that improve strength, balance, and flexibility
- A handy Game Finder for quick reference to games and activities by name, number, location in the book, activity type, skill development, or suggested grade level and complexity

Gymnastics Fun and Games not only allows K-8 physical educators to take a developmentally appropriate approach to teaching noncompetitive gymnastics, but it also makes a great reference for gymnastics instructors.
